Customer reviews for Bold Oil & Water
As is normal for Juan, this illusion is simple but deceiving. It does require a certain amount of guts as the technique is more what I would call a bluff but it is very effective. Well worth the money if you perform close up table magic. Resets instantly and would be great for walk around.
At first it was a little hard to follow when he was trying to get people to remember the sequence of the cards. The beauty of a video is that you can replay it and figure it out for yourself. Bold indeed.
This is indeed, bold, but only a single phase oil and water. It would be a good component to a standing oil and water routine or a sort of trick in passing but is not a full blown oil and water routine.
Juan Tamariz explains the trick quite well--both the secret move and the misdirection. This is a short explanation--only about 5 minutes, but there is is actually a lot of value packed in here, at least for a beginner, regarding the psychology of the magic trick and the verbal misdirection that obscures the slight of hand.
