ALCHEMY - visual, modular magic
Alchemy is a tool kit of sleights and tricks that allows you to magically change a card into a coin and back! It looks great with our Jokers and Grinder coins thanks to their unique design compatibility.
We'll not only teach you the main sleights and moves you need to accomplish these effects, but most importantly, the transitional and clean up techniques you will need to get you in and out of each routine seamlessly. Create your own magical routine using the elements you will learn in Alchemy.
All the various moves, transitions and clean up techniques taught in this tutorial can also be performed with any card and coin and applied in other areas of your magic.

"...I think there are some really, really good sequences in here – the 2nd transformation sequence ‘Vapor’, is so visual and so good that I fell out of my chair.
Sleight wise, the back palm work on the video was quite innovative. I like the modification he made to the Tenkai Palm (using the little finger in the 2nd transformation) I have not seen it before and I believe this is an original modification.
Another thing which deserves mentioning is the various cleanups taught. In my opinion, these deserve some study. Very often in closeup magic, one finds oneself holding out in similar situations to the video – an object held at the fingertips with another object concealed in FP. This video offers extremely innovative suggestions to clean up. "
