Magic Lessons #21 – Torn and Restored Napkin
Torn and Restored Sleight of Hand
If you are looking for a fast and simple sleight of hand trick, look no further than the “torn and restored napkin” trick.
Sometimes magic tricks can be negatively affected by over complication. You know the type I mean: Here I have four Queens that I have removed from a deck of playing cards. If we put those Queens in between the two Kings, then give the deck two riffle shuffles and two cuts then I turn the deck upside down and…. The over complicated nature of a magic trick such as this, results in a loss of the trick’s overall strength.
This is not an issue when it comes to the torn and restored napkin trick.
