Make Amends (With Gimmick) Review

A card is freely selected and signed. It is torn into four pieces which are set upon the table. The performer taps the pieces with the card box and the signed card instantly is restored and may be picked up from the table by the audience member.

The method to accomplish this is very clever and well thought out. This is not, however, magic for beginners since it requires a Double Lift, a Top Change (which is not discussed), a Top Palm and a Finger Palm. A gaff is also required which is not supplied but easily made.

The presentation suggested will not be everyone's cup of tea. It involves fast talking the audience member into forgetting the card they chose. Wayne comments: "I know it sounds crazy but it works." Well, later he admits, "Sometimes it doesn't work." Actually, when it doesn't work, Wayne had a really amusing response which I think is better than what happens if the audience member does become confused and "forgets" the card.

The visual effect is here quite strong and surprising.

Do you like 'T n R' effects but the performing environment will not allow the long piece by piece routines?

Are you concerned about how angles will work?

Well, Now at last, with 'Make Amends' the spectator signs a playing card that gets torn into quarters and placed in a pile on the table. The magician, now taps the corner of the card box on the pieces and INSTANTLY the card restores.

The box and signed card are left on the table to be examined. With many varied ways of performing the effect, you are even able to execute the restoration in the SPECTATORS HANDS.

Once again, Wayne Fox has taken a classic effect of magic and changed it to suit a working environment.

This more accessible method allows the freedom you need to concentrate on making the effect unique to you.
