Yves Doumergue has stunned many knowledgeable magicians with his Ripped & Restored Card. If you ever wanted to do a torn and restored card routine with a one piece at a time restoration this DVD/video will teach you Yves' creative new methods which have been embraced by many professional magicians. Yves performs and teaches three outstanding routines. They are clever, relatively easy to perform and the visual restorations look completely impossible.
Routines performed and explained:
Ripped & Restored: An outstanding new handling for the torn and restored card. A freely selected and signed card is torn into four pieces. The four pieces are visibly fused together one piece at a time until the entire signed card is restored. Everything is examinable and the restored card can be given as a souvenir.
A freely selected and signed picture card is torn into four pieces and restored in the strangest way. After two of the pieces are fused together you magically restore the card in a 'mismade' condition where two of the corners are in the wrong places. Instantly and visually the card is restored in its entirety.
A variation of Ripped & Restored where all four corners of the card are signed prior to the tearing. The restoration is made by making each of the signed pieces fuse together until the entire card is restored.
Includes in-studio and live performances by Yves Doumergue. Everything is fully explained. Hosted by Laurent Beretta.
