Ask a spectator to hold out their hand and make a closed fist. Pull out a marker and draw an 'X' on the center of your palm and close it into a fist. Now without any rubbing, erasing or funny business, you slowly open your hand and reveal your X is COMPLETELY GONE. Now ask the spectator to open their hand - THE X IS ON THEIR PALM!
Ask them to try to rub away the X - they can't! It's Sharpie ink! Tell them not to worry though - it's safe and nontoxic and can be washed away easily with soap and water.
The secret behind Double Cross is diabolically clever, and perhaps more importantly, practical. Its always inked and ready to go. There is nothing you need to make or prepare beforehand - just throw the pen in your pocket and you can perform it all night long.
Because there's no difficult sleights, you'll sail through the routine. You're so far ahead the spectators will never remember you coming near them or even touching them. The result is a unique magic effect that's self-contained, has NO reset, and can be performed surrounded. Its a table hopper's dream.
Double Cross includes the MagicSmith designed and fabricated Double Cross Sharpie pen, accessories and online instruction link.
There are plenty of sharpie effects on the market. And I’m sure some of them are great. But Double Cross is by far the best effect you could carry with you. I’ve owned this product for some time now, and let me tell you the reactions you’ll get are priceless. The trick is basically over once you do the sneaky move, and then you can perform it how you want. There will be practice involved. But to be honest just get your patter down. And you’ll be fine. I’ve done this many times and every time it gets the best reactions ever.
It is a good trick to preform once you practice and get the hang of it and I covers most angle if done correctly
A must have for magicians. It’s a great trick to walk around with.
If the ink on your marker is to light then keep ot tip down overnight.
Otherwise really great trick.
Double cross is must have with magicians. This is very good prop
What a great trick!
