These are my top 5 silk tricks and they are pretty slick too.

Silk Cascade (Fountain of Silks)
20 Century Silks (a non-gaffe version).
Snap-a-Silk into Silk Through Glass
Crystal Silk Cylinder
Double Color Changing Silks (in acetate, don't judge me LOL). This is great for parades and as a quick visual effect. I like the acetate because it wears like iron and can be done in the sunlight (if you don't display it at length). With proper handling this can be much more graceful and Magical than typical handling I see. (thanks to my partner Tom for the handling).

What are you looking for?

You can have some real fun with just a silk and hank B**l and you don't have to fold or pre-set. Where you want to use it and what you want to carry is a big part of your choice.
If I had it to do over again, I would not become so fond of Crystal Silk Cylinder (with two opaque tubes). It is a lot to carry.
I happen to enjoy folding silk but not everyone does. The fact that I'm willing to do it makes my show look different in the Birthday biz but if you don't like it don't do Silk Cascade.

1. 20h Century and it's descendants (e.g. Marconick's Prisoner Silk; my Third Millennium Silks)
2. Red, white and blue silks to American Flag (or a flag Blendo)
3. Silk Through Rope (as described in _Scarne's Magic Tricks_)
4. Production of silks and a 24-foot SKS streamer from an Alumascreen
5. Cane to Streamer

You can see 1,2 and 5 in my promo video at this link

Here's a link to a still photo of my streamer production from the Alumascreen:
The Alumascreen was a Fabjance product and unfortunately is no longer produced.
