Hello everyone oviusly Im new to the café so if Im doing something wrong please let me know.


So the question I have is I have ben looking for a blendo that can be used for following routine.

The concept of My act is to invite to spectators to a table and have them "select" to dishes that they wouldnlike to eat then I produce their food in magical ways.drinks,Bottle,salt,chicken. In the beginning of the act I would like to produce a few silks then blend them into a Silk that would act as a table cloth and production hankerchief.
Every blendo that I have sen is either a rabbit or Ape or something or a cool loking sunburst or target design. But Nobel of these look like table cloth in any way. So judging from the picture on the abott square blendo it kinda looks as a tablecloth. I want the blendo silk to be as thick as possible so that it resambles a tablecloth and so that I could maby do a tablecloth pull inbyte end of the show. If anyone that owns the abott square blendo would comment on the product and if the final blended Silk looks similar to a tablecloth that would be great. Any other sulutions or products would be appriciated a custom made blendo Silk is probably not an option sinne ive heard they Are super expensive. I Hood all of this makes sense. I Thanck you all I advance

Blendo's are made out of thin silk for a reason, so the simple answer to your question is no, none of the Blendos on the market would fit your idea. As you are going to produce the other items from something, then include the tablecloth as well.

The bag blendo may be able to fit you needs, there is a Cape blendo that you may be able remake into a table cloth, as it is a double thickness. A quick search found this "Bag to Cape".

Offering food to a spectator brings other considerations into play, as you may need a food handler's permit, and other types of food permits. As long as they don't handle or eat the food, you should be okay.

One potential option may be to use the method of David Ginn's Cheat Blendo but use a lightweight flannel or satin instead of silk:https://youtu.be/LUL_dk7Kyvs

This is not an unusual look for tablecloths:

I like that Idea that could be made to look as a table cloth. But instegade of using Neil fosters can I not use a pull and. a steal of the blendo Silk?

Another idea that I helige could work would be to blend 318 inch red silks to a 36 inch red bandana now I don't know how magical that would be since all the silks Are the same colors.

Or to large 18 inch silks One large One small into a large 36 inch zebra Silk of course it would be thin. Would the audince really Cate IF the tablecloth is thin?

Even if all the same color you could still create a pwerful impact if the idea of separation was sold strongly.

Is it permissable for the squares to be all the same color and positioned as napkins in the routine? If so, you could use the square blendo method (e.g. https://youtube.com/watch?v=Gizul6CiWgg) enhanced with a f%%%% c**** manipulation. It would go something like this:

"Let's see...how many napkins do I have? (pick them up and physically count them showing seperate) One-two-three-four-five-six-seven. Perfect! One for the lady (hand one to her)...one for the gentleman (hand one to him)...one for me in case of accidents (tuck corner in apron/pocket d******** g****** so you are now clean). And what about these other four? With a simple twist they blend together into our tablecloth!" Pause at this point so they can take in the transformation and see that your hands are empty.

You could pretty much use any material you like with this method. Just find a material which will work for your other parts of the act and make (or have seamstress make) the napkins, tablecloth, and gimmick. It is literally just cutting squares of cloth and putting a tiny hem around the edges.
