I don't do a lot of magic with silks, but am working on a routine to end my kids show...I plan to produce numerous small, 9" or 12" silks and I want an easy way to change them in to a 36" "The End" silk.

I was thinking of a rip apart change bag - Penguin has a 12" x 9" one...just not sure if that will work??

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Forget the bag prop - use it for something else. The small silks to 36" silk is a simple Blendo sleight. I recommend you buy one of David Ginn's Santa Claus Blendos (they will soon be all sold out and then no more available) and let David teach you how to perform it with simple sleight of hand moves. Then you can go back to your own silks and "The End" silk for the rest of the year, but you'll be glad you got Santa when you had the chance. https://www.ginnmagic.org/product/happy-santa-blendo/

I would suggest a Massal Tube.

I would have suggested the Rice Silk King Studios Pocket "Dye tube", but I think they are all sold out. This gimmick and Rice's "Thru The Dye Tube" booklet, would accomplish your idea very well.

Send an email to Ruth and see if she has any left.

Thank you guys! Funny thing is that in between posting and reading your responses, I had started re-reading a couple of David Ginn books! Think I've figured out how I want to proceed...

Read the Blendo chapter in "Encyclopedia of Silk Magic Vol III".

Devil's Hank and Crystal Silk Cylinder are my favorites.

I would use the unprepared blendo as taught by Neil Foster. Abbott's still sell the directions. It was also in Tom Jones lecture " Corporate to Kiddies".
