Card Sharks invisible deck thatvhe sells on the site is made with SF spray. It is a good way to test the water. But I am all in on everything Phoenix.

I ordered some regular and marked decks earlier this week. I've used nothing, but bicycles so if I like Phoenix (as much as I think I will), I'll need to replace some current things like the invisible deck, BW, and others so I'm quickly building a wish list off of his site. Do you have his double deck? I'm wondering if that will go toward the MT deck we discussed elsewhere? Or maybe he can make me a custom MT deck?

Can SF be made to stick cards together with a heavy application?

i.e. I want pairs that can be handled singly by spectators apart from the deck yet be separated when desired.

There are other solutions that do that .
However they won’t separate easily without talking unless you know exactly how to do it Gaz 🙂

Sticking aside -- unless you're using something like the Phoenix Double Deckers, two cards stuck together are going to feel/look fishy if you let a spectator handle them.

It's not for playing cards. For business cards and/or double blank 'flash cards'.

I usually use a roughing stick for this, which works great at first but it dries out after a few days. Was hoping for something that is a little more permanent. It needs to stick together but also not feel too tacky (so repo glue is out). I guess the roughing stick is still the best, I just need to reapply on occasion.

Plastidip on both cards may work for what you need Gaz 🙂

Good idea, I'll try that. I was hoping to have only one card treated, but plasti-dip is fairly innocuous feeling so it might work.

Yes it is fairly innocuous , more so as you know that all the cards will be consistent Gaz 🙂

I was thinking of buying some Science Friction and was curious what the leather wallet it says it comes with is like. Is it similar to a JOL packet trick wallet?

It is leather with an outer mesh type pocket and inside if you open like a book has quite a lot of plastic sleeves poker card size to hold possible 10 card gimmicks for various effects . I have one just I can’t lay my hands on it right now . Anyway that’s pretty much what it is and it’s very nice Gaz 🙂

Question for SF users. I have been a long term user myself and I have always had good results. However, an effect I am now creating needs a little more stick. I would like the stick to be strong enough that I can toss the cards on the table without them coming apart. Then on a reverse to be able to have the cards come apart. Any ideas on different substances? I have tried SF and a roughing stick and it works but the cards come apart even on a slight lay down.
