Here's the effect of this close-up trick: The magician shows a packet of cards which bear the picture of a full glass of red wine. A spectator initials the top card of the stack. The performer removes the card (face down) and visibly squeezes the wine from the card into a glass. The card is turned over; the wine glass is empty, but it still bears the spectators initials.

Obviously, what we have here is yet another variation of "Out to Lunch." The selling point of this version is the production of the liquid. The gaff which allows you to do this is practical, but you need to know that the liquid does not pour out of the gaff, it squirts out of the gaff. To me, this does not quite jive with how a wine glass works. However, this may not bother you. But I can think of other applications for the gaff, and perhaps you can, too. Bottom line: I think this trick is worth your consideration, especially because it is possible to use the gaff in other situations.
