Is there a black art card gimmick for cards that you can purchase?

Thanks,

Martini

I am sorry to report I have never heard, seen or read about such a card.

It would be easy to make one, just glue triple velvet cloth on the back of the playing card.

I know this has little to do with your question, but your question reminded me of this playing card with a portion of the hand on the back of the card. This made it possible to palm a card and show the hand empty at very close range. The one I seen was very good. This was like 45 years ago.

Gee, don't. Too thick.

Use black contact paper instead. This is what the Korean manipulators use, as well as another nifty trick that makes cards even more invisible from stage distance. I won't tip the other one, but encourage you to purchase "The evolution of card manipulation" be Lee Ang Hsuan instead. Just this trick is worth the whole DVD, in my opinion. The combination of both allows for real witchcraft on stage, granted you're skilled enough to pull off the sleights.

The contact paper is applied into one, two cards at max. It is not needed, nor would be any usable, on all cards unless you're manipulating no more than five simultaneously.

OK. So you are looking for a manner to conceal the card before production. Follow Fábio's advice.

Bojan, very impressive! That first production was so clean! I would love to start using black art, but it's so much work getting the outfit and the back of the card to blend in together.

To get them to blend as you put it, it is more the lighting them any kind of color matching. Black is Black.

I would not agree with it that black is black Bill. If it was so than people who use BA acts wouldn`t care much what velvet they used. Material can be black and shiny, dull, reflects light....

Don Drake used to do black art card work and sold the triple velvet for doing so. It looked good.
