One-handed Top Palm as a Color Change

The basic concept was included in J.K. Hartman's “Sandwitchery” from Packet Magic, 1972, p. 45. However, it wasn't done as a visible change; disclosure was delayed until the right hand moved aside. Hartman gave a variant handling, “Face Lift Change,” in Card Craft, 1991, p. 112. However, the one-handed top palm was executed before the face of the deck was displayed, and then the right hand performed a color change, depositing the palmed card on the deck. Paul Harris introduced the idea of using the One-handed Top Palm as an instant, visible color change in “Wax Lips” from Close-up Entertainer, 1979, p. 166.
