Marvin Roy did a silk act years ago. As he said "Most people are too lazy to do the act now." It takes a lot of packing and attention to get it ready.

Ade Duval did a whole act "Rhapsody in Silk" which has been published by Magic Inc.

Duane Laflin does a lot of silk magic and I do also. However, the days of the entire act of silk magic like vaudeville are pretty much over.

Ward Thomas also did a very good act that was primarily silk.

I'm not sure what you are asking but if you need some help blocking out some ideas or putting together an act, drop me line.

I'm re making my Kids Show act, and I thought perhpas if it was mostly silk, it would pack smaller, and might be a lot of fun. So far what I have been planning was a "Where is the rabbit?" silk routine, which is so far about 10 minutes of silk magic, that ends with a silk fountain with a final load of a 36 inch rabbit picture silk. Do you know if there are any animal picture silks besides rabbit and skunk, I want to try to pull a rabbit out of my hat (silk hat), and fail more than just the skunk, somthing like a elephant to, "How the heck did that elephant fit in my hat?!"

I am doing a few minuts with silks during my act:
Can to silk
Zebra silk - black and white and at the end the Zebra
Multilated parasol - silks vanish and appears on the parasol
Change bag - change the coloras of the silks
Thumb..- changing colors
Silk to can

For your request look at: http://www.laflinmagic.com they should have printed silks with diffrent animels.

I do a 30 min silk act, both as Paddy The Clown and Doc Paddy O'Dill and his Medicine Show. The only non silk I do is a cut & restored rope then into Professor's Nightmare.

Paddy, do you know anything about The Complete Palmo Routine from Laflin Magic? Is it good, does their DVD on the Palmo teach it?
