FWIW... I just purchased and used the Harry Robson stick that Poof mentions and it is great! SO much better than the brush-on roughing liquid I purchased before!
Tada!...

Thanks Dapper! I'll probably stick with the cheaper option right now tho. 😂. See what I did there? My can of roughing spray (probably testors) is leaving a yellowish tint on my cards. Probably has nuthing to do with it being every bit of 15 years old. hahaa!

Do not spray it on so thick. that may be the reason rather than age. Hold the spray can about 8" away and a row of 13 cards should take no more than 1 second to pass over. If it looks like you missed some spots respray that row but faster his time (like 1/2 second fast) and it will be good enough when it dries.

What were you using that was "brush on"? That is one I have never heard of. Also, with the stick, do you have to rough both cards for it to work right like testors and dulcote or can you just do every other card (like SF Spray)?

I had picked up a bottle of Aldini’s Quick Fix Roughing Fluid. It goes on like nail polish.

As for the stick, Robson recommends doing both cards, and that seems to do pretty good. Also, in the video, he preps an entire Brainwave deck in 2 1/2 minutes. Smile
Tada!...

Got me a can of testors today at Hobby Lobby. 👍. Even got 40% off coupon online on the way to the check out line! I think it was $3.22 total. 😃

I was contemplating getting Villain, but I don't have any experience with it yet.

Hi DB,


I haven't tried this myself, but somewhere I read a suggestion that instead you could scrawl on the card with a white crayon instead of using spray. The claim was that the crayon wouldn't show up. I liked the idea because crayons are presumably nontoxic. Has anyone tried this?

Roughing stick sounds like a good idea -- especially because you're not going to inhale any spray.

I have heard roughing sticks do not last as long on a deck. Roughing fluid lasts a long time.
I just have to try some of the tips here with roughing fluid. The decks have it wrong. The cards are too hard to separate. It is not just the touch, etc. So thanks for the tips!

I have used the stick for one particular effect and I only rough one card, works great although after about 10 performances, need to refresh it. And in the effect Monkey in the Middle, there is no need to seperate the cards until you reset it. Much easier to work with than roughing fluid also!
