This cardistry trick is super easy, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t cool. This trick will actually surprise the crowd even though it is so easy to perform. I personally believe this is one of the easiest tricks in all of cardistry. Now there are a few ways to do this move; I’m going to show you the easy way. If you want to learn how to do it the way that is a bit harder, watch the video.
The Easy Way
- Hold the deck in mechanics grip
- Place your thumb on the center of the card hard enough so that it will stick to the card. Use your other nails on the other side of the card to give force to the card so it will stick. If you try to just stick your thumb on the card while it’s laying on the deck it can often stick to other cards.
- Pull the card up with your thumb and balance it with also the help of the card stickiness.
- Finally, return the card to the top of the deck by simply placing it there. If the card is stuck to your thumb too well, you can use your other fingers to take it off after the card is returned to the top of the deck.
