A card magician’s life can be made considerably easier with the help of the accessories you’ll find on these pages. These are each designed to solve those little problems you’ll encounter when you start to deal with cards day-in, day-out.
Among these items are card guards, in a range of materials and designs – from plain steel to luxurious velvet. If you’re in the business of carrying a deck of cards around with you wherever you go (as all good card magicians should), then you’ll find that wear-and-tear can take its toll on the edges of your cards. After a while they’ll stop fanning as easily as they once did – and they’ll become noticeably less easy to handle. With the help of a card guard, you can provide your cards with protection from the abrasive forces of your pocket.
As well as protecting your cards, you might also consider some extra help to make handling them as easy as possible. This can help can come in the form of a lotion which you can apply to your hands just before a performance in order to make your skin as smooth as possible – perfect for when you have to perform delicate sleight-of-hand under pressure. You might also consider fanning powder, which makes card manipulation a breeze – just apply a little to your deck and your cards will glide over the top of one another perfectly.
So take a look through the items listed here, and you’re sure to find something to make your magical life that little bit easier!
