These three jam-packed lectures are a close-up magic worker’s dream. There’s something for everyone from card magic to coin magic and even a touch of mentalism. Everything will be wrapped up with a live zoom Q&A where you can ask Craig anything you'd like (this is always the most popular part of the Masterclass series).

Craig Petty Masterclass Overview
Session One - December 4, 2022 (4pm ET / NYC Time)
Slow Motion Sandwich
A playing card slowly materializes from back to face.
A pack of cards with different denominations on them are shuffled and the spectator is allowed to choose any five. You correctly predict the amount they selected.
A partial transposition of a card where just the face travels, but not the back.
Twin Souls Variation
The spectator says stop and their selected card is turned faced up. With a snap of your fingers, the entire matching four of a kind is now face up.
A mystery card is placed aside and you perform a small packet (three cards) ambitious card routine that ends with a mystery card kicker.
A double backer is split into two Aces. You then “program” the next double backer to get the two black Aces.
Session Two - December 11, 2022 (4pm ET / NYC Time)
This session will focus on the creative potential of using gaff cards and gaff decks. To get the most out of the class, you will want to grab a few items that most magicians likely already own:
- Mirage Deck (x2)
- Svengali Deck
- Svengali Deck with a Spot Card (2 or 4 is ideal)
- Red/Blue Double Backer
- Invisible Deck and Matching Double Backer
- Regular Red Deck and Red/Red Double Backer
- One Red Blank Deck and One Blue Blank Deck
- Roughing Stick
Items Available Here
Two cards distinctly marked with crosses (“X”s) on the back vanish and then sandwich the selected playing card in the deck.
A chosen card has the name of a celebrity on the back that a spectator was thinking of.
Mentalism vs Prediction
Instantly know which card the spectator has thought of and then show that you predicted it in advance
You read the spectator’s mind and divine the film, color and card they chose.
A stick figure vanishes from one playing card and magically reappears on a thought-of playing card.
Stick figures start to appear on the backs of a packet of four Aces before all jumping on to one card. Then, the stick figures appear on every card in the deck.
Two decks with numbers on the face are shuffled. Deck one is cut into six piles, and the numbers match six chosen cards
Session Three - December 18, 2022 (4pm ET / NYC Time)
BONUS Session Four - December 25, 2022 (4pm / NYC Time)
The name says it all for this stunning effect.
Angle Z x WOW
A corner of a playing card teleports.
A Five of Hearts splits into two selections (a 2H and 3H).
A multiphase routine, packed full of magic, that ends with the whole deck turning blank!
BCM (Business Card Matrix
Ink moves from corner to corner before a surprising ending where coins appear.
Four coins across that the spectator does in their hands
Triple C Wild Coin
Three coins are produced, travel from hand to hand, and then change into Chinese coins.
Metal balls jump back and forth from the pocket to the hands and, as they do, they also grow in size.
