Now 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 includes Proudlock's version and working in his act or program can indeed regard himself as a professional of the highest caliber.
38 illustrations and Edward Bagshawe's step-by-step instructions make everything clear. Use silks or scarves. This should be a feature in your act.
