Where is the best place to find a solid description for handling for this effect? I am still searching for a good routine/handling.

Bob,
I have been waiting for the eggs to show up in craft stores. They seem to all be in bright colors. Are you spray painting these type of plastiic eggs?

Thnx,
B

I would get the encyclopedia of egg magic. There are so many versions of the this effect it will stagger you.

Actually, I still use the old Tarbell method as it is simple and to the point.

You can find paper mache type in craft shores right now. The outer side is kind of krinkled but if you take it off it is a plastic inside. Also if you cut both ends open you can make a quasi palmo gimmick.

I use a real egg. At the end of the routine,
I break it into my dove pan, and bake cookies
for the kids.

Hello Bruce,

They (Krylon) do make a paint for them now that is really for repainting plastic yard furniture.

However, I've never had a real problem getting whatever colors in plastic eggs I wanted. I even have some black ones!

I highly recommend the Viking Silk to Egg. I recently did a search and evaluated several offerings in the marketplace...from my local craft store to Zimmerman. Suffice to say that I'm very happy with the Viking offering. Their product comes with 2 gorgeous 18" red silks, two "spots" to peal off (covered in actual silk and very realistic), and of course a great ceramic egg. And, produced to the great Viking standards. I use this in every show and absolutely love it.

After three different eggs, I use the Viking egg. You can buy it either just the egg for about $8 or with the routine and silks. Tarbell Volume 1 has a good routine. There is also a routine that Duane Laflin does that is available on video.

If possible, this is the type of prop that you will want to see before purchasing. The Tenyo egg is too small and another egg I purchased from a mail order dealer was very poor quality (it was actually a white Easter egg, complete with 2 halves glued together, with a noticably different shape than a real egg).

Glenn-

good to hear of someone else getting good results in shows of this top product that I use as mentioned earlier

I have just purchased 2 more resin viking eggs as backups-should last for years

Michael Ammar has a very good routine-I used to base my own on this but changed a few things but still a very good routine

I love this effect as no matter where it is shown-Theatres or private parties etc-Always goes over so well

Cheers
