Anyone here own and use the Science Friction spray? I'm about to purchase some (albeit expensive) but I remember seeing a card at Blackpool during someones routine and I can swear under certain light angles I could see a very slight marking across the middle of the card face. Is this magical spray really absolutely invisible when applied to cards?
I know what you're thinking, why didn't I ask the guy performing with the cards, after he mentioned he uses SF, but it was in the bar and we'd had a few beers by then, and it just slipped my mind!!!!!!

What you say about SF spray is accurate. There is a slight haze let say where the product is applied. If looking directly at the card, that haze can be noticed when viewing it from the one bad angle that reflects that haze in the area SF was applied to.

Functionally, I would consider it invisible. There is only one bad angle and unless one is looking directly at it and knows what to look for, it will go unnoticed. There should likely NOT be a time when the application is exposed in a prolonged moment for someone to stare at and notice. Most times, the application is used on the underside of a card anyways, so it is unlikely to be noticed as it usually remains hidden.

I use SF and I don't even think about it being noticed in all honesty.

One thing that can help when applying SF (or Krylon, etc...) to just a section of a card is to raise what is used to mask the rest of the card off the card a little. The will prevent there being a perfectly straight, "man made" looking border going across the card. Instead, the border will have fuzzy, dissipating character.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Yeah, what he said.
