All I will say is that those who doubt the real world-ness of this are totally wrong. I saw Seb perform this at least half a dozen times. Bars, restaurants, and my home. Smoked me every time... Smoked EVERYONE every time... I guess we should have watched it on YouTube to better appreciate it.
If you ever get to a point where words have no meaning, you're probably talking to a dog.

Remember! More Bang For LESS Bucks! It is the right way!

I just bought the book to learn this handling and I love the method. Mr. Owen calls this SOBW in his book. Anyone know what that stands for???

To answer my own question, I cantacted Mr. Owens and he told me that the answer is in the last paragraph of the routine in the book. ( And it is! )

A stupid question perhaps; but for those familiar with an eight card behind the back color separation of cards. ( totally impromptu and ungimmicked) Called Aces Of Eight ( I believe appeared in the bound volumes of the Phoenix) Would this be considered a sight unseen version of OIl And water, if executed below table level, and brought topside for the reveal? perhaps the hardcore card workers here could clarify this for me.

Given the level of interest in this routine I thought you might be interested to know that the lovely folks at are about to release my Ultimate Oil and Water, a new DVD giving the most in depth explanation of this routine to date. It also features additional handlings and variations, including some which I have never before revealed.

Also the guys at are doing a couple of pre-release offer at the moment if you buy the DVD before December 15th, including a special deal if you pre-order the new DVD of my lecture at last year's MacMillan International Convention at the same time.

You can check out the video trailer here:

Best wishes,

Oil and Water reminds me of a trick that is also called Oil and Water that I paid a magician to learn when I was about 10 years old.

This one truely brings back memories and amazes me, thanks for the post. The one that I learned was based off of a sleight of hand shuffle.

Check out Juan Tamariz's wonderful new book "Verbal Magic" for an O&W performed by the spectator (or a group of spectators) in their own hands.
It's all in the reflexes.
