Does any one else find that when you pull it from your sleeve that it tends to get stuck just before it comes out. Has anyone else had this problem or is it just me?

Thanks, Lukas

Lukas,

You're not the only one with that problem. The most important thing is that the audience doesn't recognize the problem. How well are you covering that?

Well, huh. I don't think I've ever thought of putting a fountain in my sleeve. Mine's too bulky! I guess if it was folded into the more cylindrical shape (using a tube), it may just work. I think I have some experimenting to do!

Lukas,
If you're wearing a suit/tux where the sleeves unbutton, there's some button extenders out there that may give you enough extra slack to have a smoother production. (Berry probably has enlarged sleeves, like dove workers.)

Shaping the "bundle" by putting it into a small empty frozen juice can first, makes the bundle a little easier to live with in the sleeve. (Only twist one direction.) Yes! Do take it out of the can before loading the sleeve!

Bob,
Leave the can, then you have a double production.
Produce the can saying "I missed breakfast". Then, open the fountain. Smile
