Imagine the possibilities Packet tricks, Brainwave, Invisible Deck, and more just got MUCH easier to make, on your own, and many original tricks that would have required a spraying shed or a craftsman to manufacture can now be done at your kitchen table within minutes. 

To see just how practical it is, you can watch Harry Robson make an Invisible Deck in less than two minutes in the trailer. It's a great new technology at an unbeatable price.

$19

I had one of these sold by someone else many years ago. Of course if you knew what it was you'd know it's not new technology, just something repurposed by magicians.   However, it IS a better idea than roughing fluid and quicker because you don't have to wait for it to dry (and can use it to make gaffs on the go).

Roughing fluid CAN be hazardous to your health in its application if not applied in well ventilated areas.

I have this and Finn Jon's roughing stick. They both work equally well.

What is the original product, which is being re-purposed here as a roughing stick?

Not to start wild rumors or anything, but my wife, the quintessential California girl, swears it's some sort of surfboard wax.

Surf wax? No way!!
I originally heard it was the stuff tailors use to mark suits for tailoring.

That's what she said!

Not regular board wax, but some sort of finishing or sealing wax of some sort. She's in the air somewhere over mid-America right now, so I can't ask her. She's a SoCal surfer girl, and some sort of board wax was her initial impression. Me? I didn't see the sea till I was in my mid-teens, so what do I know?!

Yes, that is what I heard (though not from your wife). Of course time and effort has been used to find the 'best' such product for cardicians 😉

When I could afford to get suits made up back in the day, tailor's used chalk, but might be different in the U.K.

Surfing is one of my interests, so I have some surf wax kicking around, I'll give that a try some time and try to report back 😉
