A DELUXE version of the classic favorite of professional magicians!
The effect goes like this:Take two same-color "silks" (handkerchiefs) and tie them together at the corner. Take a different color silk and vanish it. Hold the two tied silks and pull on them- the other color silk is now tied IN BETWEEN them!
DELUXE VERSION!This is a quality set of silks!Smooth operation!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 a smooth rayon blend and measure about 14" on each side.
Please note: the color of the silks shipped may vary. Usually the set will be will be purple and yellow.However, this can change, depending on what the manufacturer ships.
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.
