Silks & Flags

Silks are the ideal stage props. They are large and colorful but can still be stored in tiny places. Many stage production acts end with a flurry of appearing silks. That is not to say that silks aren't effective close-up. Think about Slydini's silks or the classic vanishing and reappearing silk.

Scripted #12: Color Changing Silks

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #12: Color Changing Silks by Larry BrodahlBased on the work of Ron Wilson.

One of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts – of any sort. And the color changing silks, using the hand dye tube, makes it even more intimidating since there are multiple steals, hand to hand transfers to make, etc. All without getting caught!

But, coming up with a script that makes sense of the handling, preserves the mystery, gets laughs, and is a perfect opener...well, that's really difficult.

This ebook gives you every line, joke, piece of timing, setup, move, rationale and nuance of the routine. The ebook also takes...

Rising, Dancing and Floating Silk

Ulysses Frederick Grant

Rising, Dancing and Floating Silk by Ulysses Frederick GrantDo not confuse this with Blackstone's Dancing Handkerchief. This method does not have to be done on stage and requires no assistants like the Blackstone version does.

Borrow a handkerchief and a hat or use your own. Tie a knot into the handkerchief and toss into the empty hat. In a few seconds, the handkerchief peeks out of the hat and jumps into your hands. Place the handkerchief on the floor and it stands straight up by itself and starts dancing around. It jumps into your hands and then floats between your outstretched hands. The magician can even walk into the audience with the handkerchief floating...

Napkin Folding

Tom Osborne

Napkin Folding by Tom OsborneFrom the introduction:
This is not to be considered an encyclopedia on napkin folding, it is the fulfillment of the Author's desire to preserve for the future some of the most interesting of the napkin folds with his own illustrations and descriptions. These folds have been gathered from all over the world. Some are the Author's creation, but the majority of them appear to be the Property - of Public - Domain, and of this latter group the Author has made an honest effort to trace the origin of the different folds, and in every case they seem to be lost in antiquity.

Then the bottom is replaced and silks appear in the box.

Producing silks is just the very beginning of possibilities with this prop. This ebook describes many other things that can be done with the basic version of the Jap Box. It is unclear where this trick originated. It is believed that...

Sucker Silks

Martin Lewis

Sucker Silks by Martin LewisA very commercial routine where all is in the delivery and the script. Martin starts with a lovely Ping Pong ball gag. The main effect is the classic push a white handkerchief into your fist and pull out a red one. The method should be clear to everybody even though Martin will explain the basic mechanism and move. What you learn here are the lines and little bits of business that make this a commercial routine.
