We never got the news of the results of your treasure hunt. Was it loaded with good stuff? We hope so!

Hi 12345:

There are a number of silk effects that can be done close up. Can you tell us more about what really interests you? Something that you'll do sitting at a table or perhaps in a strolling situation where you don't have time to reset the effect?

Here's a few ideas:

1. Classic vanishing silk - a small silk vanishes in your hand or rolled up dollar bill. Uses a TT.

2. Color changing silk - a silk is tucked into your hand and comes out the other side a different color. Hand is shown empty. There are a number of handlings by people like Ron Wilson, Frank Balcerzak, and Billy McComb. It really is a great trick.

3. Slydini Silk - spectator ties silks together, but magically, the knots keep coming undone.

4. Blendo - there are some small blendo silk effects where different colored silks are tucked into your hand and blend into a multi-colored silk.

Tell us more about what you're interested in, and we can come up with more specific idea. Hope this helps get you started.


By now you've probably realized that #3 Slydini Knots (actually not Slydini Knots--they're found in "Scot's Discovery of Witchcraft"
--500 years ago!)should NOT USE SILKS. Silk will just not stand that kind of handling. "RIP-STOP" NYLON is what Quintino Marucci (Slydini) used. I've been using POLYESTER SCARVES for about 40 years. They last about one season on the road. --400 shows.
