In one of David Blaine's specials he rips a playing card and it instantly catches fire in a flash. Does anyone remember this? It's something I've been wondering about for awhile and would like some closure.

PM's welcome!
Any ideas?

I'm not sure of this is true, but I have heard of (basically) flash cards. They're special cards that when torn catch fire.

This has been discussed before, but as far as I know and have read, nobody has a sure answer for exactly what he used and how he did it. There are many ideas and thoughts on the matter, but nobody knows for sure.

All I know that it is some kind of liquid the card is put into before the effect. At least this is what I have been told.

Its on his Showman DVD, which is his Frozen in time special, he performs it for the NY Knicks, unless I'm mistaken.
