DELUXE VERSION!This set is made of 100% Chinese silk!Perfect for the discriminating professional magician!
You will need a method to vanish the silk that ends up in the middle. A Change Bag is a good choice for vanishing the silk, with no skill necessary.Large handkerchiefs are silk and measure about 16" on each side.Small handkerchiefs are silk and measure about 8.5" on each side.
Please note: the color of the silks shipped may vary. Usually the large silks will be RED silks and the small will be YELLOW.However, this can change, depending on what the manufacturer ships.No matter what you get, the large silks will always be matching, and the small will be a contrasting color.
You can do this trick without using a volunteer. Tie the two same-color silks together, and then place them in a clear vase so the audience can see them at all times, but you are not touching them. Vanish the other color silk, then lift the two tied silks from the vase, pull them and you will produce the odd-color silk tied between them.
Frank Ducrot introduced the concept of the 20th Century Silks trick in 1900.
