I think Levent decided NOT to put in the nearly exhaustive effort of explaining all the various methods and techniques in a comprehensive DVD set.

Rather, he opted for just explaining the method and routine that he has been doing successfully for a few years.

Now that Levent has 'published' his method as a DVD or download... (and hopefully derived a well deserved profit from it),

I feel free to share some of my thoughts on the effect with readers of Genii in next month's (January) issue.

It will include what I think are some clarifying ideas as to the plot and a better resolution at the end. This is material that until now, was part of my lecture notes.

Got my Levent's Ultimate Guide to the Sympathetic Silks today.

Received the DVD along with a very useful plastic prop and other little prop parts.

Have not watched the entire video yet but so far I am so happy.

Happy it doesn't start with a street or alley scene. Doesn't have the kaleidoscope of various spectators' reactions.

It is just Levent going over the history of the Sympathetic Silks and what others have contributed to get to this stage we are at.

He demonstrates other's workings. The video is done very well with excellent close ups so you know exactly what his moves are.

I appreciate he has done all the research on the Sympathetic Silks and presents it to me in such a clear and understandable DVD.

Sounds great!!!

Levent doesn't do anything... if he hasn't done thorough research for it. His efforts are always a welcome contribution to the craft

Correction to JNeal and Harry Murphy.

As a Christmas present to myself I found the Paul Potassy DVD set at a very good price on sale at Magic Warehouse.

On the DVD Paul Potassy said, the "scarves are heavy weight silk", that he found in Paris, France.

Paul Potassy, act is very entertaining, and he gets lots of laughs throughout the act. So happy I got a chance to see his magic and method for presenting it.

Heavy weight silk is ideal for the Symp Silks.

They are not too difficult to find but in pure silk, but pre-made, they can be a bit pricey. Also, fashion scarves made for wearing, usually have a hand rolled edge... not so good for silk knots.

If you have access to a silk merchant or fabric store , ask for pure Habotai silk in a 10 or 12 momme.

Then have someone with sewing skills put a flat seam edge around them. They will be much less expensive, and equally good and long lasting.
