Hello there,

This is my first post here, so let's have a go.

I was traveling in Spain last week. As I was joining in the fun in Valencia during their "Las Fallas" party, I saw a street performer giving a fantastic show for the public. It was well recieved by all.

He performed a lot of silk effects, which were extremely funny. Especially with his manic performing style, and some Benny Hill backing music.

However, he also performed a colour changing silk routine. I think it is called a Sucker Silk routine.

Has anyone got any information on a routine called Sucker Silk?

Many thanks in advance.
Best Regards

Do some research on a 'Dye tube'. It is a classic silk gimmick and many colour changes can be made with it.

Sorry it's a brief reply.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for that. I am aware of the Dye Tube. I have a flesh coloured one that I use. I am specifically searching for any information on a routine called 'The Sucker Silk Routine'.

Any sources of information would be greatly appreciated.

How is the magic scene in Scotland? I worked for many months in Edinburgh in 2000, and I used to travel over to Glasgow to visit a magic shop there. It was very friendly and I shared good times there. I have some good memories.
Best Regards

The shop wouldn't have happened to be Tam Shepherd's, was it?

May I ask where you worked in Edinburgh?
I will PM you.

:)

Sucker Silk

I have three versions of this effect, although they are virtually the same.

Ken Brooke - The Unique Years
Out of print but available used. Lots of
other good stuff.

Billy McComb- McComb's Magic
Don't know if it's in print but some of his books are being reprinted. The rest of the book is not as good as Brookes Magic magazine printed a stripped down version in Silly Billy's section about a year ago. I can let you have the correct month if you want.

Hope this helps -- Eddie
