Hello,

I saw this effect when I was back in High School & was amazed. After getting into magic this routine had never popped into my head until recently. Now, I am in search for an egg. I have heard of the Tenyo, Vernet, Zimmer & Viking egg, but I am not certain which to get. Could someone recommend a good egg for this routine?

Thanks,
Me

Just make your own. It is easter time. Eggs are available at most stores. Just cut a hole the size of a nickle.

That it. I painted mine with epoxy paint to conceal a colored silk.

You forgot the Egg-actly eggs.

Do a search, there have been several strings on this lately.

The two that I currently use came from Oscar Munoz.

Super silk to egg

It is by far the best looking "real life egg" and for only $15. Murphies carried them but they are disconituned. The trick is going to be marketed again soon as eggstadoriny.

You could also contact Murphies any they may give you the name of the guy who makes them. He lives in Texas somewhere.

Magicman1319,

I can forgive most anything but failing to use a capital T on Texas! (LOL!) I fixed it before they came for you.

Oscar and the eggs are in Texas. (They'd fool a chicken!)

Enjoy life!

Bob,

The two eggs you use, what are they made of? Are they whole eggs with the hole in the middle or do they break apart?

Thanks,
:)

They are hard porcelain that looks just like a real egg (dull rough finish). They are one piece with the hole about quarter size. They do not snag your silks. (18" fits fine)

Back-BrKR,
Just go to a local hobby and craft shop and buy a couple of ceramic eggs and drill a hole in back of them until you have the size you require. The drill bit you will need is called a universal drill bit, it's starts out small and get's big as you drill down. But first make a small hole with a regular drill bit then use the universal bit so you don't crack the egg.
Sometimes depending on the egg you get you might half to paint the egg, the egg I got was the perfect color and I've been using the same egg now for about 3 years now and I love it because it's something that I made fit my needs.

Best,
Jeff

If you want a real status symbol, get a dental lab to make you one over precious metal. You won't be the first, but other magicians will know that you like the trick!

Well, I did not realize that Viking has a new egg. I purchased their silk to egg routine some years ago and got the ceramic egg. Very large and just like the Egg-sactly eggs. Viking did put a gold letter on the inside of the egg witha marker.

I perfer the Resin egg to any. I will have to order several.

The silk to Egg is one of my key effects. Over the years I've used various types of eggs. They all work fine. Even some of the cheap plastic Eggs will work just fine.

This is also the time of year to buy plastic Easter eggs for various effects. The stores have them in stock. Finally, there is spray paint that will paint them too! It's actually for plastic lawn furinure. But what do they know about magic!

Michael Blanco also makes a really good ceramic egg, it would fool you close-up.
I've seen them on magiclegends.com under the silk magic listings.

I got some ceramic eggs from a local restaurant/gift shop called Cracker Barrel and took my Dremel tool and made a hole in them. They look and work great.
