Did not know Gabriel did Silk in Balloon. I guess the easiest would be to get the video of Mehdi Talbi Cabaret Act here: http://www.camirandmagic.com/vl_020.html

I do not think any dealers sell it at this time. It was a trick put out by Supreme Magic 25 years ago.

You can get clear balloons from http://www.stoners.com or check your local magic supplier in your country.

I might be mistaken. But, I think the effect that Joesph uses looks to me like the silk in balloon that the German Dealer "Magic Hands" used to sell in the 1980s.

Hi !

I bought the video of Medhi Talbi and it's a great one for the appearance of the silk in the balloon.

but I really don't know how to put the silk out of the balloon as Joseph Gabriel. I try with balloons used in the needle thru balloon trick but I don't find the solution...

You might want to call Tannens magic shop in New York (www.tannens.com). They carried for many, many years the Magic Hands trick called "Visible Silk in Balloon" in which a silk appeared in a balloon and then the silk was visibly pulled out of the balloon through the side. I don't know if they still carry the effect, but it can't hurt to contact them about it.
