I know this is an old post - but no-one here has mentioned the fact that it's dependent on the "feel" - it won't work if you have dry skin. I have dry skin. To get round this, I lick my middle finger, and wipe it...not during the effect, but before I ever pick up the deck. I lick the middle finger, point to the deck (forefinger) then pick it up. Talking to mis-direct.
Hope this helps.

I have never been able to do this until I watched a great tutorial about it on 52 Cards. Some things are simply better on video, and this is definitely one of them.

I have dry skin too and this helped me a lot. Thank you for the advice.

For those with dry skin issues you may want to adopt Harry Lorayne’s suggestion in having a damp towel nearby to moisten the tips of your fingers. This idea has been useful and helps with card handling. It is somewhat better hygiene than licking your fingers, especially in performing for others.

The Pirouette is a card flourish that is very popular in cardistry circles.

Your best bet is to check cardistry channels for tutorials that teach it, such as the following:

Fontaine Cards
Milson Productions
School of Cardistry

More video tutorials for elementary card flourishes suited to beginners can be found here: Video tutorials for beginners in cardistry
