Forget the Invisible Deck, John Bannon's come out with an Invisible Card using a regular deck of bikes and one very clever gaff. 

Paint It Blank, by John Bannon looks like this: You ask your audience member to mentally select any card. (Genuine free choice - no equivoke, forcing, cleverly worded limitations or pre-show used). They just think of one card. 

After performing the magical gesture of your choice, you let your spectator know that you've caused their card to become invisible. It's unlikely they believe you, but you insist it's true. You mime taking their "invisible" card from the deck and slide it between the two jokers. Instantly a real blank card visually appears between the two jokers. You place the blank card into the spectator's hands, and it prints itself into their thought of card. 

And it's totally examinable. 


  • Self working
  • No sleights
  • No forces
  • No stacks
  • No equivoke
  • No off by one


  • No reset

All you need is a regular deck of bikes and one gaff card (which is included)

This is ideal for workers - there's no reset and no table is needed. 


Customer reviews for John Bannon's Paint It Blank



I can't believe I'm doing this, but I'm actually writing a 5 star review for a trick I haven't received yet. Why? Because after watching the performance video a few times, it dawned on me exactly what he's doing, exactly what the gaff card is, and how brilliantly simple it all is. If it fooled me several times before I figured it out, it'll surely fool someone I only show it to once. I'm ready to do this right off the rip, without even watching an instructional video. So now I can't wait for the gaff to get here. Maybe all the tricks I've gotten from Vanishing are starting to make make think like a real magician, ha.



I love it!!! This effect is easy to and straight forward. Pay attention to the patter John suggests.
This won't fool many magician's, but for the lay audience - this plays really well.



Very sneaky, Mr. Bannon! I’m adding this to my restaurant set ASAP.

I am a HUGE admirer of all things Bannon and this is no exception. It's a POWERFUL effect and an absolute BREEZE to do! As usual, Bannon finds extended uses for old ideas to come up with a direct, efficient effect. I rate it only four stars as the pace of the instructional video is catatonic! Get on with it John! Essentially, he takes over four minutes to explain that you need to get a card to the top of the deck, cloaking that essential fact in performance details that are both unnecessary and particular to his own presentation. This is a bone I've been picking for a long time. PLEASE, teach the trick and THEN indulge in the personal touches!. Though the trick is brilliant in its simplicity, the video is clearly a one-take, self-indulgent, lazy substitute for a one-page instruction sheet. The good news is you only have to watch it once.
