This thread was resurrected so the small point I'm making responds to a two year old post, but when you are using a TT, you can increase the visibility/size of the silks by using diamond cut silks. Larger apparent size from less bulk. That, of course, assumes you don't need to display the silks like Pop does.

After some trial and error, I do not recommend a dye tube on the street. I gave it a go with a palmo and the wind it brutal blowing that silk around. While it can be done, it's no where near as good as it is inside.

What size silks were you using outdoors? Getting ready to learn Billy McCombs Half Dyed Silk and had considered using it on the street.

Just to give a different perspective....I have used the dye tube on the street many many times...and if it is not windy, it is GREAT. Packs small, plays big and vertical. Great for a crowd gather, beginning.

18" silks work with the standard Palmo which I use.

Agree with cbguy if there is wind, it is brutal.

And Chatterbox....I hope to see a post soon with your experience trying street magic. Less chatter...more action Smile

18 inch silks and a rice palmo. What Zauberman said is perfect, I can't add anything to that.

I've been doing the color changing silk since 1947. On a few occasions, I've used it when working "al fresco", but, it was a day with only a light breeze! Wind can make it a bit difficult.

Consider using the "Elusive" silk vanish. It's much easier.

I thought of a way to make the dye tube work on the street doing the half dyed silk, without the wind being an issue.

If I have time to play with it, I will give it a go over the next few weeks and report back if it was successful, doing it the way I have in mind.

Having known Billy McComb, fairly well, although I don't do his "half dyed", I shall look forward to your thoughts!

I use the patrick page routine with a palmo gimmick and 18" silks.


I do the same and have done for a while. A great edge builder.


I hope this doesn’t come off as rude but;

If you’re going to recommend a routine, wouldn’t it be nice to say where the routine can be found?

I had a nice hand dye tube made of metal with a cloth tape inside. One day, the tape just split! I did without for a long time and then, with a small windfall, I bought some stuff including a “Verne’s” tube that I’d seen on Tannen’s website. When it came in, I was VERY disappointed! A tiny, plastic thing, a little larger than my thumb! I actually wrote them over this and one of the kid’s tricks I bought. They said; “Yeah, it’s ment for smaller silks. Nothing over 14”.” Lovely. Nowhere in the ad does it suggest what size silk is to be used or what the dimensions of the tube are. If I’d been in the store, I’d have never bought it.
