A great effect! A white rope suddenly changes to a colored silk just by passing it through your hand!
And yes- it's that simple! Can you pull a rope through your closed fist? Then you can do this trick!
Start with a white rope. Ask your spectator what it is you are holding. They'll say "A white rope". Ask "Are you sure it's a WHITE rope?" as you pass the rope through your hand. "Because it looks like a RED SILK to me!"
Easy to handle 12" silk. Magician in the demo may use a different color rope and silk than you will get, but it is the same trick.
