How to Do the One-Handed Fan Card Flourish

Learn how to do the one-handed fan card flourish from magician Jason Suran in this magic tricks revealed Howcast video.


Another really cool way that you can fan out these cards is called the one handed fan. It is exactly like it sounds; it is a fan with one hand.

Now the way that it is going to work, here I will show it to you guys really quick. It is just that. It is really easy, it just looks like that. Right. It is a great way to offer someone a card. It is a great way to do it you know while you’re looking away, cover your eyes, whatever. Now it is surprisingly easy to learn. The position is really simple. All you to do, is you want your thumb to be right about there. Right, just a third of the way up on the card. And you want these three fingers right there.

About a third of the way up on the other side. And what happens is as the thumb pushes one way, these fingers actually pull the other way. Which causes the fan. Right. So real slow it just looks like that. The farther you push your thumb, the wider the spread is going to be. It is a really cool fan; I like it just like that. Alright. I will show it to you with the faces, boom. It is great, it is nice, it is easy to learn. And you can do it with just one hand.
