Topic: Pressure fan split
Message: Posted by: Seth (Jan 10, 2003 02:05AM)
I'm looking for a resource for the following flourish. As I remember it, a pressure fan is made. Then the fan splits or rather closes into two halves (without using your other hand).

Any ideas guys? Thanks in advance.

It doesn't have to be a pressure fan. Cards are pushed one way with the thumb and the other with the ring finger.

I just started working on this myself. It's a moderately hard flourish, but it looks cool (the whole idea of a flourish).

Check out Jeff McBride's "The Art Of Card Manipulation" videos. I believe card fans are on volume two of the set of three.

Here are some tips on that move, which I recently learned... well it took a darn long time. I am assuming you are right-handed.

Right hand over top of the deck with 3 fingers at the upper right corner. All except pinky, thumb at bottom short side.
Left hand under the deck, index + long finger on the bottom and thumb close to center on top of the deck near the bottom short side.

Go first a little to left and bend the card inwards and then keep the same pressure when circulating around the hand. Thumb on the left finger and the right hand are working opposite ways when the fan takes place.

Now go practice.. :blush:

I am so sorry... I misunderstood... I thought you were having problem with the fan splitting while fanning a pressure.
My fault.
