This thread was resurrected so the small point I'm making responds to a two year old post, but when you are using a TT, you can increase the visibility/size of the silks by using diamond cut silks. Larger apparent size from less bulk. That, of course, assumes you don't need to display the silks like Pop does.

After some trial and error, I do not recommend a dye tube on the street. I gave it a go with a palmo and the wind it brutal blowing that silk around. While it can be done, it's no where near as good as it is inside.

What size silks were you using outdoors? Getting ready to learn Billy McCombs Half Dyed Silk and had considered using it on the street.

Just to give a different perspective....I have used the dye tube on the street many many times...and if it is not windy, it is GREAT. Packs small, plays big and vertical. Great for a crowd gather, beginning.

18" silks work with the standard Palmo which I use.

Agree with cbguy if there is wind, it is brutal.

And Chatterbox....I hope to see a post soon with your experience trying street magic. Less chatter...more action Smile

18 inch silks and a rice palmo. What Zauberman said is perfect, I can't add anything to that.

Definitely Zauberman! Did what I believe will be my street act at a festival a couple weeks back for 4 hours... if I can get the photos small enough to post, I'll begin my series of posts... Smile
