Sticky Stuff Handling for Hawk

by Janet Harris on July 26, 2013

Here's a great tip on the sticky stuff from magician Martin.

I have seen a few threads about Hawk 2 stating the sticky stuff gets all over the cards.

Well, I have had the effect now about 3 weeks and can I mention to all those having problems, I have found that after applying the sticky stuff, if you leave it on 3 or 4 hours and come back to it, the gimmick is perfect ... just the right consistency. The cards will get no residue on them and works like a charm. The same card can be used days later and the gimmick will still adhere.

That is the only thing wrong in my opinion in the DVD as he states the gimmick is ready to go in about 10 minutes. I personally had great problems after trying the trick for the first time following this time element. However, I suppose it depends on the climate you live in.

Has anyone tried this in conjunction with the riser deck? The selected card rises to the top of the deck while in a card case. Then show how it works visibly. Fantastic.
Hope this is of interest to users.

Thanks, Alan!
