A "silk" is what magicians call the scarves or handkerchiefs used in magic tricks. Traditionally these scarves have been made of silk, because silk can be squashed flatter and smaller than any other material. A large silk scarf can therefore be magically produced from a seemingly too-small place, or can be hidden easily in the palm of the hand. Best of all, dyed silk is exceptionally vibrant, with crisp color. That's why silk scarves, or "silks", like these are a must-have for your magic act.
This vibrantly colored silken square is perfect to use with Appearing Canes, Appearing Candles, Vanishing Candles, Vanishing Canes, small production boxes, Magic Screen, Popcorn Dye Box, etc. Highest quality fine silk blend compresses extra small and tight, and presses easily with a cool iron. The edges on these silks are rolled and fully finished for snag-free use.
These silks measure approximately 18" on a side.
Available in red, blue, green, yellow, pink, orange, purple, turquoise, black and white. If you are purchasing a silk for use with canes or candles, you may want to consider purchasing a silk of the same color as the cane or candle, so it will seem like the silk has changed into the cane or candle.
You are purchasing the silk only- no instructions or routines.
Silk only. NO INSTRUCTIONS.Supply your own routine.Handkerchief is made of silk.Measures approximately 18" on each side.Choose your color when ordering.A note about silks measurements:Magicians refer to the different silks as 6", 9", 12", 18" and 36" silks.However, the inch size in the title is a REFERENCE.It is generally understood that the measurement is APPROXIMATE, not exact.The best silks today are made in China- of high quality Chinese silk.The Chinese manufacturers do not measure in inches, so what is supplied to us as an 18" Silk may not be exactly 18 inches.The number in the title shows the relative size of the silk- about how big it is in relation to other silks.Rarely does a magician require a silk to be an exact measurement.(If you do need an EXACT size, you would have to find someone to custom make it for you.)Instead, the 6", 9", 12", 18" and 36" in the title helps magicians to specify x-small, small, medium, large and extra large silk sizes.Please expect this silk to be ABOUT 18" on a side, but it could be as much as a half inch smaller, depending on the manufacturer and the current stock that was shipped to us.
When you produce your silks, you want them to "pop" up out of the production box or change bag like a Kleenex, so you can grab the next one easily, quickly and smoothly.Here is a FREE lesson to teach you Monticup's personal technique for correctly loading your silks so that it works every time!
