I use this as part of a longer routine. But of course it can stand on its own. Indeed, if you are performing commercially, you do not always have time for long routines, involving the discovery of several cards. It is often much better to just produce one, effectively.
Anyway to return to the effect. This is simply that a card is chosen and lost in the pack. The salt pot (little salt man) fails to find the card. Salt is then poured onto the wrong card and it changes into the right one.
Sometimes I will have the card signed. I do not always get cards signed but sometimes it is quite effective. Certainly in a commercial situation there is something special about a signed card. You can always sign it yourself as an autograph. Incidently, on the subject of signed cards, I find that the Edding 400 Permanent Writing Pen is excellent. It dries quickly, makes a good sharp line, shows up clearly and does not smudge.
