Bare Bare Bare Bare Bare Bare

In what is destined to become the go-to trick for professionals around the globe, "BARE" generates screams, gasps, and reactions like no other trick we know. This special, hand-altered sharpie marker allows you to cause ANY card, initials, number, or simple shape to appear ON A SPECTATOR'S HAND.

They hold out a hand palm down and you gently sprinkle salt, pepper, coffee grinds, or sand on their hand. By rubbing their hand gently, their thought-of shape APPEARS on their own hand.

The "BARE" sharpie allows you to invisibly write or draw anything on YOUR hand, which you easily and imperceptibly transfer onto their hand. The best part? It has no scent or stickiness, and can be easily wiped away after performance. This a the hygienic, "neat" version of the "Ashes on Arm" trick that doesn't endanger a spectator's clothing or look "dirty."

  • The pen lasts for hundreds of performances, and is disguised inside a real sharpie marker. 
  • Includes full video performance and explanation download link. 
  • Easy to perform.
If you have seen the video, you will have watched how easily and invisibly you are able to 'stamp' your spectator but here is something that really excited us... the 'special stuff' will stay on their hand, undetected, for up to TWO HOURS. So, imagine this. You introduce yourself to a group and secretly 'stamp' one or multiple people as you shake their hands. You can then choose to perform "BARE" immediately, or the beginning, middle or end of your routine (or even later on!).

In your package, you will receive the very specially modified "BARE" Sharpie, plus the link to a 35-minute instructional download (this will also go into your account immediately after you purchase!).

Note: We would like to thank an excellent magician and friend of Vanishing Inc., Spidey, who published a wonderful version of this effect. He gets full credit for the idea of transferring onto a spectator's arm and using pepper to reveal the impression. "BARE" exists with his full blessing.

Customer reviews for Bare



Yeah, it's really great. It feels like the final word on the ash on arm effect. There's nothing stopping you from doing a 'Double Cross' type presentation with this gimmick by drawing on yourself with a water based marker first (or using whatever you use for the reveal, pepper or whatever) then rubbing it out before revealing the symbol has appeared on the spectator.







The other brothers have done it again. This is the best way to perform ashes on arm. The method is devious. Highly recommended if your into creepy magic.

Love this! I use it with ESP cards and couples and make one of them transmit the symbol over to the other. They become the stars.

This is way too good. This plays out almost everywhere, and is also very practical. Also it is extremely easy to use. Enough talking, just buy the thing!



This is an AMAZING routine and very deceptive device. I've performed with it for about a week now and getting epic reactions. In my secondary career as a teacher, my students love it when I do routines. Pepper, Salt, Coffee, and we can add Pencil shavings to that list.



I don't often write reviews, but I took this out of the box and used it immediately and got a huge reaction! I love this trick!



This thing is insanely good. I preordered it and the wait was very suspenseful and omg it was worth the money and wait. The OB really have outdone themselves with this. Super easy, visual, streamlined and a WORKER. A working magicians dream for this plot in magic. Amazing!



We have chapstick, soap and white candle wax. Do we really need a sharpie with "special stuff"? As it turns out, yes we do. The formulation is easy to apply, lasts a surprisingly long time, and WORKS. All the usual caveats of "don't wait too long before the reveal" and "use a short word or simple shape" still apply to the ashes on arm effect. The Other Brothers do a nice job with application tips and routine ideas, but the real value is the applicator and the invisible liquid. Just be sure to cap the Sharpie securely when you're done!



It works very well if you write the thing on the back of your hands. However, if you want stamp it on other people's hands, it really depends on the humility of your hands and the humility of other people's hand.

Overall it's a good utility.



Great trick, awesome method. I really love this trick but I just haven't found many situations in which I would perform this over a simpler trick. Love the creative thinking though!



I knew what I was buying and when I got it I was very impressed but I definitely think that when you can use this is limited. I personally don't want to carry about pepper packets in my pocket but I can see this playing almost everywhere. It is practical because you can just carry this and be set and also, there is so much you can do with it. Before you buy, make sure that you will use this because we don't want these to go to waste!
