I never wear a jacket. It really comes down to the structure.

I was hired on a cruise and they didn't allow me to bring eggs on the ship. Security, security! On the ship they had only -brown eggs. I was prepared. I brought some paint! Since it is more and more difficult to obtain white eggs, the paint works very good. I prefer white eggs BTW, because of contrast and better visibility.



Hard to believe I first posted on this comment 10yrs ago....I still use the Silk to Egg in most shows but now quickly spray paint the brown eggs to an exact match for the fakes white colour,obviously for visibility on stage & travelling out of town, for which I perform in the corporate market. Still one of the strongest effects I use and still get many comments about this effect. Theres a short clip on my website performing this at the Comedy club live..Its a classic.

One thing I would like to hear is feedback from the walk around version..I perform many corporate close up shows and usually save this for my stage show,but if no stage event I would seriously like to hear peoples thoughts on this version thanks..cheers

After nearly six decades of performing magic, Silk to Egg is still one I do at least 1/3 of the time. Of course, there is a Walk-Around version that resets. Oddly today we use the brown ones more than the white ones. It is good that bother props are available.

My reason for using the Walk-Around Version is that country clubs do not like for us to crack eggs on their high priced crystal. Of course the Walk-Around version does not use a real egg at all. Thank God that very good ceramic eggs do exist.

I also use the brown gimmicked egg as a hank ball.
