“I love this.” –Josh Burch

Kyle Purnell is something of an underground inspiration creating and sharing effects that everyone at magic conventions wants to see. His work with cards is a unique approach to visual magic, and this two card in the hands transposition is no exception. You literally see pips dragged across the card. The insane part? There are no gimmicks. This is Pip Sleek by Kyle Purnell.

Here’s what happens:

Two cards are taken out of the pack while the rest of the deck is set aside. The magician tells the spectators they will demonstrate the art of making objects transpose or change places. First, they will do it fast and the second time they will do it slowly. The first time the two cards change places with just a shake. The second time the cards are placed face to face, and the magician visually drags the pip of one of the cards from the middle to the top where then the index also changes as well. The cards are shown to have transposed not once, but twice.

Pip Sleek is a fantastic quick trick that takes a little practice but is within the reach of most magicians. As a Bonus Kyle teaches an optional third phase where the cards fuse into a single card of a higher value. Pip Sleek gives you the kind of visuals normally only possible with a gimmick, but thanks to Kyle’s expert teaching you’ll be performing them with a regular deck of cards. Add these crazy visuals to your repertoire today with Kyle Purnell’s Pip Sleek.

Visually move the ink across a card without touching it. No gimmicks, no trick cards, animate a pip on a card with a borrowed deck. From the devastatingly clever mind of Kyle Purnell, this moving pip effect will make your audience swear they are hallucinating. This is Pip Sleek 2.0.

Here’s what happens:

The magician removes an ace and a two from a deck of cards. One is openly placed in the middle and the other is placed in top. The magician tells the audience that they will use sleight of hand to make the cards change places. In the blink of an eye the cards visually change places. The magician tells their audience that they will make the cards change places again, but with magic. The ace is placed on top of the deck, and the two is placed face down on the ace so the audience can still see the pip in the center of the card. With a gentle shake the ace slowly moves across the card. With a gentle rub the indexes on the ace transform into the two. Incredibly after the ace transforms into the two it just as suddenly transforms back into the ace. As a kicker the magicians visually fuses the ace and the two into a three of the same suit.
