In his "The Art of Magic," downs talks about eggs made of "india-rubber" that are compressed, placed in the mouth, and then inflate one at a time to make a very convincing eggs-from-mouth.

I'm not familiar with any commercial product that uses this method. I only know the shell & palm method that is ancient and effective, but might not be as cool & effective as this.

Any clues from our scholars?


We could have been practicing!

Sorry, Never heard of this. I may be something that is like most methods back then. Healthwise not good for people.

I can't imagine how you could us an egg skin or Weller type egg to do this.

Weller/latex eggs take quite a long time to expand fully. that's why egg on fan lasts so long, as it grows ever so slightly.

You can inflate a skin or latex egg with your breath as you withdraw the object from your mouth. The fully formed egg will appear at your fingertips.

One of the English dealers sells this as a dealer item. P.M. for more information.
I have always assumed that a number of sponge eggs was the answer. I've seen someware, an egg bag routine which uses a number of compressed eggs in a similar way.
