If you use a Sharpie in your show, you're in the perfect position to start performing Permanent.

The Effect: The magician shows both sides of a Sharpie marker, and then rubs some of the ink off the side. The magician transfers their powers to a spectator so that they can do it themselves! Then, in the blink of an eye, the writing jumps back onto the marker. The Sharpie can be examined and used in your next routine.

Visual magic with a prop you already use.

The ultimate in audience participation.

Resets in seconds.

Great for walk-around.

Bonus Effects:

Letter Carrier:

The magician pulls a printed letter from one side of the Sharpie to another.

Ambitious Card:
Chris' favorite trick to use with the Permanent routine. A signed card repeatedly jumps to the top of the deck.

Ball of Yarn:
Another great classic that can be used with the Permanent gimmick. A signed coin vanishes and ends up trapped in a ball of yarn.

Trick Specifications:
Comes with custom-made Sharpie gimmick, two bonus gimmicks, and instructional DVD.

Running Time Approximately: 30 min

This trick is easy to perform. The sleight is easy to learn and fun! This is one of those tricks where your audience gets to touch the prop and make the magic happen. Wiping away the words is just plain fun to do. I have been told by many people I perform for that they just want to rub the ink off over and over again!

However, this trick requires a minimum of 1 minute to reset. So you need to be completely alone. When I perform, this trick is my opening. Then after it is done, I perform some "sign-a-card" tricks.

The added bonus tricks are easy to do also. I honestly like to perform Permanent out of the whole list. However, they create great reactions. I gave this a 4/5 because the only problem is the reset. I would love to perform it more but when I table hop as a magician, I never have the time to quickly set it up.
