One handed Silk Production

Postby vanishintonight » Mon Apr 09, 2012 5:35 pm

Hi everyone!.....I'm looking for a god method of producing a 24" silk from one hand (to be used in conjunction with
"Flower Power")......currently I employ their method of just accordion pleating the silk and having it palmed in my hand....
I'd love a way to do it where I can show (by greeting the audience) that my hand is empty....I remember in the old days there used to be on the market some type of holding device that you put on the inside of your coat bottom- but, have been unable to locate it, guess I can use any type ball holder, but would prefer not to as I'm already using a bunch for this & that........Any suggestions?...Michael

I am not sure what type of costume you are wearing but if it is a nice suit or tux, what about removing a flower from your lapel with your fingertips, a flick of the wrist and the flower changes into a silk?
On the border of our minds lies a place where dreams and reality are one, a world of magic...

Tony Clark has something out. Called silk drop. Its a gimmick that you can produce a silk with one hand. I looked on MJM but did not find it. Maybe Jeff would know more.
Want to see a trick.

Thanks, Lance, for the info- I was able to go to the Magic Cafe and most reviews of it were for the vanishing of a silk, and not
to complementary. I guess until something new pops up I'll use the old ball holder, although I already use several for the
multiplying balls and to hold a mouth coil- one more shouldn't hurt.....years back, I think I remember, from Rice's Ency. of
Silk Magic, a modified ball holder that had like a 2" piece of wire (instead of the round holders) where you'd wrap the silk around
it and tuck in the loose end, ready to palm when you needed it. Might try making my own and seeing if this works better than the ball holder....Michael
