To prepare

Required is a packet of 20 design cards. These cards should be removed from a packet of 25 Mental Pictoria design cards, sold by Haines House of cards. They are also available from me prepared to go. You are now going to turn these 20 design cards into a reflector packet. First, remove the following 20 designs: triangle, pear, heart, sailboat, wheel, vase, umbrella, ring, snake, question mark, moon, ladder, knife, ghost, face, dollar sign, candle, arrow, bug, and diamond. Discard the remaining cards. Obtain some black paper. I use pages from a photo album, usually 2 or 3. Place the 20 cards, design sides down on a sheet of newspaper. Using a can of pressurized permanent spray cement, spray the backs of the cards. Now, place them sticky side down on the black paper. When all twenty cards have been mounted, carefully cut them out of the black paper using a sharp Xacto knife. You will now have twenty design cards with black backs. One of the greatest investments I ever made was to purchase a desktop laminating machine. The one I use is an IBICO, model EL-12II. To laminate the twenty design cards you will use IBICO Government ID laminating pouches which come in boxes of 100, size: 2-5/8" x 3-7/8." Plug the unit in. Press the switch and wait until the light comes on. When it does, you're ready to begin laminating. Place a card in a laminating pouch so that it is centered. Place it in a provided cardboard sleeve and feed it into the machine until it begins to be drawn between the inner rollers. When the sleeve emerges from the other side, open it and remove your newly laminated design card. Continue until you have laminated all twenty cards. Now, using some fanning powder and a soft cloth, lightly polish each card. Assemble the packet and you're ready to go.

Today I'm going to teach you a fundamental Mentalism technique known as 'cold reading'. Cold reading is a technique employed by mentalists and charlatans and by charlatan I refer to psychics, mediums, fortune tellers or anyone that claims false abilities that is used to give the illusion that the person has some form of super natural power.
