Well you will a volunteer, a deck of cards and a marker pen like a sharpie or a pen that will boldly mark the deck so it doesn't look like you have produced a duplicate card.

So did you guess the secret of the Torn and Restored Card Trick?
Yes you fold two cards and only rip one of them. You hide what you are doing with your hands by manipulation. Its great idea and will work well in close up situations like bars and clubs or even restaurants.
The secret is shown in the video but you can clearly see by pushing the signed card to one side, the card that gets ripped is the duff card you had placed onto the signed card.
You will have to learn the double lift which we can show you how to do correctly here on our double lift tutorial page <click here> and a new window will open.
Remember to practice in front of a mirror so you can watch your angles and palm the four quarters of the duff card in your hand so it wont be seen by the audience.
