Hug,

Ya, this is probably the way. I had the inclination to see if there was anything more complex.. Call me crazy.

I've heard Vito Lupo's method is really good. Where can you get his lecture notes?

Does the silk have to be a full 24" square silk, or would a diamond silk of like size be acceptable? Even compacted into a rolled ball, a 24" silk would make quite a large bundle.

If you have the Channing Pollock appearance on the "Daniel Boone" TV series, he does a bare-hand silk production using what might be described as a 24" silk rolled into a sort of Stillwell ball. It was not part of his classic act as seen in "European Nights," but it is a very effective silk production. If you know what a Stillwell ball is, you can maybe interpolate what I'm hinting at. But Channing's hands were large enough to provide adequate cover for a rolled 24" silk. I suppose, too, that the quality of the 24" silk will determine how compactly it can be rolled.

Joseph also did what looked like a 24" silk production as part of his first appearance on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

I do have Josephs Carson clip, ill look into it. Unfortunately it would need to be a full 24". My hands are large enough for the palm.

Thank you.

Would you be able to pick up a wand (or take it from inside your vest), then use it to point at one hand, making the silk appear? Not to tip it here, but I think this is in several books. It could be done anytime during your act.

The "Channing Pollock" method( off the back of the hand) doesn't require a Stillwell ball, just a loop of thread. This is also the method Joseph used, if I recall correctly. It was quite popular here on the west coast as Peter Pit taught it to several manipulation acts. Roy Shank used it to good effect as well, back when he did manipulation...
The Vito Lupo method discussed earlier in this thread is really based on Levent's techniques and was shown to Vito by Levent , if memory serves.

However,Richard (Rug) is quite correct, a single thread to a vest or pocket works wonders and is also written up (drawn up?) in Anverdi's notes, albeit with a wooden ring. It has the added advantage of lacking angularity issues.

Sam Berland also sold something similar to the Channing method called the Silk Appear. You could manipulate it like a hank ball. Snap your hand down and the silk was there extended at your fingertips.
