Topic: Ball to silk
Message: Posted by: fakiir (Jul 18, 2008 09:21AM)
Hello all! I'm currently working on my stage act with doves and ball manipulation. Does anyone have an idea how to make ball change to a silk in the air (like in Lance Burton's act)?
It's not a problem to steal a silk and make a false transfer, but I don't get it how to make the silk unfold so nicely in the air. Is there any gimmick in use, any special fold, or any booklet about the subject I that can buy? Thanks for you time!

Fukai has the best way in his lecture. It looks better and is easier than Lance's.
Cordially,
Howard

The folding is significant. Check Rice's Encyclopedia of Silk Magic, Tarbell, or almost any of the standard teaching references.

Do any videos talk about silk manipulation, perhaps with balls too?

Do you have tails?

Jeff McBride's stage DVD series has silk and ball manipulation.

And as stated above by others get the Rice Silk books and you have a wealth of knowledge not only of folds, which makes a big difference, but most all silk effects that you seen are in there.
