Pete: Sometimes the most obvious of solutions are overlooked by us trying to hard. hehe

On another forum someone in the UK complained that they only have brown eggs and he cuoldn't find a gimmicked egg in brown.

I told him to buy spray paint, darkish flesh-color, from a display firm (the paint used to touch up window manequins) and paint both eggs to match.


An old white-haired guy you guys know has used BandAids! That is all some of my dye tubes ever had.

Band aid use started, I believe, with Billy McComb. He used it to cover his dye tubes for the half-dyed routine.

I do recall him mentioning this once at a convention. Great guy and always willing to sit down and chat with most anyone. The banaids work really well and an easy fix to a lot of problems.

Hey Pete,

I was just searching for information on Howard Bamman and came across your post here about his Silk To Egg. That is one of the effects I have been searching for. Any chance you would be willing to share that with me?

Hi Marc! If my memory (which is long, but growing weaker) serves, ya hafta work from a stool as Howard did. It was delightful to watch Howard do it.

Karrell tipped his "Super Simple Silk 2 Egg" to me a long time ago. I made a tiny change and have used it ever since. He later published it in "For My Next Trick" (page 95) Brown or white eggs "work", and NO SWITCH IS NEEDED!

I kinda figured that Dick, but I'm sure there are other ways to work around that. I'd still love to hear from Pete what the "reel work" is on this.

So simple, thanks for postsing. It's amazing how so many 'improved' versions are HARDER to do.

Love the routine from pop haydn. I like to give an thought to concider. maybe not for POP but for those who are working on the routine. most magicians do it like POP: first show the egg then show the silk.

Don Alan always did it the other way around. first show the Silk then the egg. the difference is that, after showing the silk, the audience wants to see what is in the hand. "OH, it is an egg!" this way always got more reaction then the other classic way. I pass this on for you as an thought.

I'm not sure how that would work when you are using two silks, Robert. I think Don Alan was only using one scarf. Is that how you do it?

I have Don Alan's props. He used a totally different egg (made by Howard Bamman)... and at the end, he poured the contents of the egg (from the glass) back into his fist and there was the Egg (restored). A real magician fooler. Smile

Right Pete! Remember Al Baker's comment? ("...Many a good trick has died of improvements!"

Now, MY improvement is to make the trick "stage size". It uses a 6' Rice Butterfly silk and an ostrich egg.

POP, I have the same set up as you. I push the silk in the fist (egg) take out the silk from the pocket. I wait for reaction then show the egg. his routine is on the Magic Ranche dvds. I just reviewed the Magic Ranche dvds and Don is using 2 silks. I don't go in detail if you see the footage you understand. POP or PM me. people think they understand, this way gets a reaction. I have been doing it all the time.

I watched it, and I don't like it. It doesn't work well with the switch. I don't like the idea of ever putting the egg back in the pocket.

In Rice's routine, the egg is apparently always in view. In Don Alan's, it is easy to work backwards to when the egg was switched.

I don't see what the advantage is of showing the egg after retrieving the second scarf.

I think Don Alan's method is clumsy and not nearly so powerful and clean as Rice's.
