Ultimate Oil and Water - magic

We're thrilled to be able to bring you Anthony Owen's acclaimed Oil and Water routine - perhaps the cleanest version available featuring a astonishing kicker ending.

In short, red and black cards are repeatedly mixed and magically separate. The full effect is as follows. You show three red cards in one hand, all the ace of diamonds, and three black cards in the other hand, all the two of clubs. Laying them face down, you alternate a black and red, black and red, black and red. Squaring the cards, you turn them face up to reveal the cards have separated and now you have three red cards followed by three black cards. The process is repeated again, and once again the cards magically separate.

As a final kicker, you do the same again but this time with the cards face up! That's right, face up. Your audience sees a black card face up, followed by a red card, then a black, then a red, a black, and finally a red. It couldn't be fairer. Yet, when the cards are spread, once again they've separated.

For the first time, Anthony goes into the full details of his routine PLUS gives you several suggestions,t improvements and additional handlings, including some which have never appeared in print or on film before! The download comes complete with the special cards necessary for you to master this right away and Anthony even explains how you can make up the cards yourself in the future.

  • Easy to learn and perform
  • Clean and visual Oil and Water separation
  • Kicker face-up ending

Anthony's Oil and Water is the cleanest you'll ever see.Derren Brown
The best Oil and Water routine I've ever seen.David Berglas
One of the cleanest, most magical looking handlings for the classic effect I've seen. An entertaining presentation, with an instant reset and no difficult sleights.Marc De Souza
Anthony's oil and water routine is one of the fairest looking, most baffling versions I have ever seen or used. It consistently fools and enthralls all who see it whilst building theatrically at every phase. The final revelation is so amazing people go WILD. Frankly I'd prefer it if Anthony kept this one quiet!Nicholas Einhorn

  • Robert asks: What Is the skill level you need to be. Are there sleights and palming involved.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There is no palming or difficult sleights. It will take a little practice, though.
  • Andrew asks: 1. This is a download only so are the special cards supplied or do they need to be made?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The download comes complete with the special cards necessary for you to master the Ultimate Oil and Water right away.
  • Mark asks: Is there ANYTHING shipped to me if I purchase this? I'm confused by the answer that "download comes complete with the special cards ." That makes no sense. Do I have to have a printer that can print 1. color 2. on a card stock that matches a playing card?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: As we already said in the previous question, you get mailed the special cards you need and the video download is instantly added to your account. Hope that's clear. I will amend the copy to clarify this. Thank you for raising it.
  • Glenn asks: are the backs blue bicycle ?

    • 1. James answers: Yes, but the video teaches you how to make up a set in any color back.

  • David asks: Can the cards be inspected after the end of the trick?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The cards are handed out for inspection during the routine.
  • Steve asks: It looks like Derek Dingle's Oil and Water was the foundation for this handling. Does Anthony credit Derek as inspiration for this? I'm just curious. It is a wonderful trick and looks great!

    • 1. James answers: Without going into specifics, Anthony gives credit for his inspirations throughout the explanation.

Customer reviews for Ultimate Oil and Water



Great product, the packaging is of very good quality! Everything is well explained in the video, it's the best! It's not complicated, just repetition, to memorize the different phases of the routine.



I was sold on this just watching the trailer for Anthony Owen's "Ultimate Oil and Water." I'm rather new to actually attempting card magic but became fascinated with it years ago when I saw a video of René Lavand’s "It Can’t Be Done Any Slower," a red/black routine that both fooled and hooked me. Watching Anthony Owen's routine took me back to that moment of fascination. The video training presentation is excellent and well thought-out and easy to follow, even for a card magic beginner. Owen provides a nice assortment of variations during the routine and even some alternate handlings. I'm not ready to perform it for anyone yet but I will not mind continuing to practice this for what I'm sure will be an awesome effect. The fact that this was offered during Vanishing's Black Friday promotional period made it a fantastic value but this download is worth the cost even without a discount!



5 Stars it is. This is not ro***ing cards. This is a totally different method and it is perfect for this effect. The instructions on video show you how to make your own so RED BACK is totally doable. You'll need something that is $8 on Amazon and easy and fast to use. The effect is very easy. Not a lot that you need to remember as the phases use same handling. The effect on lay audiences is great. It is so clean and unbelievably. You can hand the cards out in the beginning to be examined. Then do the trick. I'm impressed and I don't impress easily in magic! 5 stars! Buy it!
