i enjoy doing color change like an offbeat. a sort of explanation of how the tricks works. Cards are special:
1 : side steal during a cut and change of the card on the face + vernon subletie where spectator think you palmed the faced card, surprised! there's nothing. (easy disparition)
2 : a cut. another card. another change where i show, before, the hand empty.
3 : a cut. another card, side steal + change fingers open. (i say that i saw a magician, a top one doing that fingers open, of course i can't do it...i look surprised: it works!)
4 : double lift of the top card of the deck (another card..) and i put "it" on the palm of the spectator. i do it like i've never tried this. i ask the spectatot to cover the card with his other hand to heat the card. he look at it...
i'm always amazed about their reaction.
people like the idea that magicians have special cards, they are curious. and you offer to share a secret. a privilege.
...but the trick is timed. at the end, cards stay stable.
