Double Cross by Mark Southworth - Trick
Ask a spectator to hold out their hand and make a closed fist. Pull out a marker and draw an ‘X’ on the center of your palm and close it into a fist. Now without any rubbing, erasing or funny business, you slowly open your hand and reveal your X is COMPLETELY GONE. Now ask the spectator to open their hand - THE X IS ON THEIR PALM!
Ask them to try to rub away the X - they can’t! It’s Sharpie ink! Tell them not to worry though - it's safe and nontoxic and can be washed away easily with soap and water.
The secret behind Double Cross is diabolically clever, and perhaps more importantly, practical. It's always inked and ready to go. There is nothing you need to make or prepare beforehand - just throw the pen in your pocket and you can perform it all night long.
Because there's no difficult sleights, you'll sail through the routine. You're so far ahead the spectators will never remember you coming near them or even touching them. The result is a unique magic effect that’s self-contained, has NO reset, and can be performed surrounded. Its a table hopper's dream.
Double Cross includes the MagicSmith designed and fabricated Double Cross Sharpie pen, accessories and complete instructions.
Also available in Red Heart Double Cross, Jumbo Double Cross and Mini Double Cross, as well as some replacement parts.
Red Heart Double Cross - This is the FULL MagicSmith Double Cross pen, but it writes in RED ink from the front, leaves a RED HEART on the spectator's hand, and comes in a RED sharpie marker. Also, the cap at the back of the pen is RED.
Jumbo Double Cross - Magic's #1 prop is now made in a stage-sized JUMBO version so the effect can be appreciated by larger audiences. If you work larger groups, banquet tables or even stage venues, you can now perform Double Cross because the X can be seen by spectators in the back row!
Everything about the trick works the same, it's just BIGGER. The X is more than twice the size of the X in the regular Double Cross, and it's much thicker.
Mini Double Cross - you’ll always have the uncanny ability to make an ‘X’ jump from your hand to theirs! All without having to carry the full sized prop. In fact, it’s so small, you’ll almost forget you have it with you! But as tiny as it is, it still packs the same punch as our full size Double Cross. Plus, since it works as a regular pen too, spectator’s can use it to sign cards - they’ll never discover it’s hidden secret.
Vanishing Ink Refill: This is the vanishing ink replacement cartridge for Double Cross. If you ink is getting dry, this replacement will make your Double Cross write like a new pen. You must already own the prop - this is the replacement vanishing ink only. Installation instructions are at the end of the Double Cross instruction video.
Stamper Replacements: Every Double Cross includes a secret stamper at the back of the pen. In case you lose or break your stamper gimmick, this part will make your Double Cross as good as new. This is the stampers only - you must already own the Double Cross pen in order to use this gimmick.
