Are there any books, videos, manuscripts etc.. on Hand washing with billiard balls or cards? And no I don't mean cleaning ;)

I don't know of videos/books specificaly on Hand washing, but I thing that JMcB videos series (Cards Manip. and World Class Manip.) are helpful in that sense.


PD: Received your mail on Cardini. Thanks pal.

If you can find it,
Monty's hand washing CD-ROM

Just be careful that too much hand washing looks peculiar at times to the audience. It must look both logical and natural in appearance to be truly effective.

Theres a technique in 'Routined Manipulation' if I remember correctly. It's been a while since I looked so I may be wrong. Maybe someone can confirm? I don't have the books at hand to check.

Being a manipulator I've seen my share of hand washing.
We had several method's at our disposal and I disposed of them all.
I could never find a good reason to bring my hands together when, apparently, my hands were empty.
If I want to ditch an object, I would instead do something like remove a hank from my pocket and wipe my hands "dry." Tying one action to the next in a natural and logical manner is half of the fun.

Im looking for routines etc on this for practice. I don't think it should be used in a real routine. Should have mentioned this.

There is one in routined manipulation one with a stock of cards. It's pretty good.

Thanks for clearing it up zombieboy. I was sure I saw something in the books. THey are well worth the low price. Certainly a trilogy of books that should be on every manipulators book shelfs.

The title of this thread made me laugh so hard, my sides ache...you really got me on that one! Man, the VISUAL I got from that! Woo...

Yes, Lewis Ganson, Routined Manipulation, that's one source...also, I THINK...it is described in another book (check me on this)...Amateur Magician's Handbook, by Henry Hay. I may be wrong about that, but I DO remember seeing that somewhere, and that's what comes to mind.

Had a VERY tough day at work today, and Yanyak5, you made my day...needed to laugh, and that I did! Ball washing... Ha!

Anytime :) I will look into that Ganson book and the Henry Hay book. Hopefully I can get my hands on it.

I got your PM! Thanks for the info! Im already washing my balls with that! Thanks!

Thanks! Im also looking into the CD rom. Also let me know when you get Ricky's DVD.
