I don't see anywhere on Card-Shark website how you can get refills for Sci-Fri.

Has anyone gone through a can, if so, how many cards/decks did you make?

Make sure you are using the correct Flexidip:
Rust-oleum
FlexiDip
Gloss top coat
Clear Finish

Works GREAT

SF is the best by far IMO. Does the job perfectly.

Excellent find. I will be bookmarking this. I have always recommend just emailing Christian directly to obtain a refill at the lower cost. As much as I “champion the brand” (Phoenix Cards and Science Frixion over plastidip), I had never seen a direct link to order from. Thanks again for sharing that link.

Can you buy the refill without first having bought the $95 “package”? I suspect the page is in the SF members area.

As I understand, you must be registered to get the refills. You get a registration number when you buy the main product package.

I'm in Australia and am interested in SF. However, Card Shark doesn't ship here as it contains aerosols. Will Penguin be able to do that?

You would have to ask them to be sure. Try the chat with a magician function while they are open and they can answer pretty much right away (in a few minutes anyway). They may be able to. The shipping problem from Card-Shark might be a “Germany issue” on what can and cannot be shipped or it could be that way for everyone. It is certainly worth asking Penguin over chat when they are open.

If you bought Science Friction the can top will have a refill code on it. Stuff works great. Have redone several of my R&S tricks using it.

Is a card treated with science friction really examinable? You can give it away?

It depends on how you define examinable? SF will create a slight dullness to the coating of a standard playing card. That slight dullness can also be felt, as the surface treated with SF will have a rough, ALMOST tacky surface to it. Consequently, if examinable means having someone suspect the card is gimmicked and then giving it to them, they will find the SF. Now if you mean examinable as in having them hold it during a trick when you are performing, so long as they are not looking at it closely, they shouldn't notice anything.

SF is expensive but I imagine you could very lightly treat a card and rub off most of it before handing it out. I doubt anyone would notice anything.

Sander's Any Card reminds me that if you want to hand out a card, you can still use SF but just use it on a card OTHER than the one you want to hand out. SF will still work and the card to be handed out is clean.

Just tried rubbing off Plasti-dip from a card... you can do it, and there doesn't appear to be anything left behind, *BUT* the time/effort needed to do so thoroughly would be rather difficult to cover / work into a routine, and if you don't get it all off, it's probably *more* noticeable.

I agree, that's why I updated my answer to say just treat the other card so no spray on the one you are handing out.

Hello
I broke my wrist and did not recover completely the sensitivity
Would SF help me in basic sleights (double lifts, Elmsley count ...) ?
Thanks

In the context of a specific handling of the ambitious card routine, it has the potential to help greatly with DLs -- that's the premise of the Delicious Ambitious product.
I think it would cause more problems than it would cure with an Elmsley count.
