A mid-air restoration of a torn playing card - that ends totally clean.


Icarus is a trick only Christian Grace could create. An effortless display of insane visuals, but with a satisfying & practical method.

As the broken pieces are thrust towards the table, they unite in mid-air to end as a completely clean, inspectable solid.

It’s an effortless display of insane visuals but with a satisfying practical method. 

It’s fun - it’s fast and the restoration happens in mid-air - or as it lands in the spectator's hands.

Spectacular 'Torn & Restored Card' visual. Your audience will be flabbergasted! Clean!
Christian Grace's Tutorials are detailed. In my opinion, a MUST HAVE!

Brandon Smart
Great Visual Effect

This effect is simple enough to learn (still need lots of practice) and the instruction is very clear. Can’t wait until I have it down enough to perform.

Brian Nordstrom
Unbelievably visual

This sucker is a little knacky but nothing crazy. What I’ve liked most is how fun it is to practice in the mirror, once you get the feel for it, you’ll just do it over and over and laugh and laugh

Larry Clark

I appreciate the well scripted and illustrated demonstrations which give a complete understanding of the illusion.

Chris Kimball
You will STUN THEM with Icarus!!!!!!

I patiently waited for this, wondering if it works in the “real” world…. It doesn’t just work… it absolutely STUNS!!!!! The reactions are shock and unbelief, followed by cheering and laughing!!!! Oh and a healthy dose of “ how the ______ did you do that” and “ that’s the best magic trick I’ve ever seen” leaving everyone begging for more. No guarantee… but don’t be surprised if your food and drinks are free the rest of the evening… and several inquiries of “ hey do you do events?”

I absolutely LOVE this effect!!!! Thank you Ellusionist and thank you Christian!

Raudel Gonzalez
Amazingly cleaver

Such a visual presentation has to be on my list , before I receive gimmick already been practicing the moves thanks to the download instructions, make sure you practice so when all pieces together you have a strong and confident presentation, a must have ! Plus you can do other changes with that special move

Dane Gordon

Fantastic piece of magic

Elite and modern magic

I love what E does to create new and alternative moves to old classics! I’ve already gone through almost three decks when I performed Icarus! I love doing it every chance I get when I go to the store and show a cashier a new way to tear and restore a card!


This is a good product so please don't get what I write wrong. This effect really needs to be practiced. It would be better for private or birthday party. You will need to take time setting up the effect before performing it. It's not an instant reset. It's a manual reset. So it may look good for 1 street performance but after that you will need to set it up in secret for your next street performance otherwise people will see you mess with the secret of Icarus.
