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.

From the introduction:

I have performed this silk act many times and have received numerous requests to put it in print.

The possibilities for adding to this act and making it still more spectacular are unlimited. Within these pages you will find added suggestions that I have used myself and found to be practical,...

Proudlock's Sympathetic Silks by Edward BagshaweNow you, too, can present this award-winning silk routine in your show.

Here is a beautiful routine using two sets of three silk scarves that magically knot and unknot themselves "in sympathy" with each other ... even from across the stage. Best of all, you can do this with your own silks, as they contain no hidden pockets, sewn-together pairs, or similar fekes.

Edward Proudlock's Sympathetic Silks are a joy to behold, no less to the magician than to the uninitiated beholder. That it was a feature of Proudlock's act for 15 years is a testament as to its beauty and strength. Anyone who...

Scripted #12: Color Changing Silks by Larry Brodahl

A script and performance video that is based on the work of Ron Wilson and makes the Color Changing Silks a practical and mysterious trick, loaded with laughs.

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. ...

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...

Scripted #3: Sympathetic Silks by Larry Brodahl

A fairly forgotten classic turned into a beautiful performance piece for any group. Includes the script, full instructions, and a performance video.

One of the more difficult tasks facing magicians is coming up with scripts - of any sort. How do you explain to an audience in a reasonable manner how and why this fabulous magic is happening?

Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows you how he used his methodology to write a script that successfully explains...in a bare minimum of script...the Sympathetic Silks.

Part of the scripts' charm is that the audience sees a trick performed in just FOUR words. ...

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.

Jap Box Tricks by Glenn G. GravattThe Jap Box or "Japanese Handkerchief Box" is a simple rectangular box without a lid and a removable bottom. The bottom has a hole in the center to facility its removal from the rest of the box. The basic effect is that the box is shown empty by showing it from all sides as well as removing the bottom. 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...

Vampire Needle by Jerry AndrusPerformer borrows a white handkerchief in order to show them a trick with a 'needle and thread'. He then produces the needle and has a spectator thread it with a piece of rope. He then pushes the needle thru the center of the handkerchief and pulls the 'thread' thru after it. This leaves a jagged hole which he trims with a pair of scissors. Handkerchief is finally shown undamaged.
