Hey,

I hope all you silk fans saw Peter Marvey on WGMV (maybe it was 4). Any who, his opening act where he produced a number of silks bare handed really stunned me. Anyone know where I can learn this or know of any good bare hand productions?

Thanks

Hi Thayne:

As far as I know, Peter Marvey's silk production is his own. I'm almost positive that I've not seen it marketed anywhere, and don't remember seeing it in print (this includes Rice's Encyclopedias).

Marvey's productions seem to rely on Black Art Principles, if I remember correctly. The productions also require some distance between the performer and the audience. The whole thing looks terrific, but needs to be done on a stage.

Hope this helps you.

I had heard that Vito Lupo at one time marketed a way to do this. I'm not sure how many silks one could produce but from what I heard it sounds like three. And no this is not the one using the rubber band. If you contacted Mr. Lupo maybe he would be able to point you in the right direction.

Take care,

Dorian Rhodell

Thanks guys,

What are some good silk productions? Is Silk Dream any good (maybe a review)?

Thanks

For producing a single silk from bare hands I like the Sanada gimmick.

Silk dream can only produce one silk (or possibly 2 at once depending on size and 'momme' of the silks).

You also need to be wearing a jacket with a b***st pocket on the front for the gimmick. The rest is self working.

Where would I contact Vito Lupo to receive more information about the production of the silks?

Thanks.

How many silks can you produce, via Sanada gimmick? And if I am going to use diamond cut silks what is the longest the Sanada gimmick can hold?

Thanks

You might want to check out the cloaking device (and video) by Jay Scott Berry! From what I've heard - it is very interesting and useful.

Thanks scott

What's better: Cloaking device or Sanada?
Thanks

Same thing, except "Cloaking Device" is Jay Scott Berry's adapted version of Sanada .
Berry's use of the adapted Sanada is detailed in his lecture notes "Illusioneering 2000" . Buy the notes and two Sanada gimmicks.

The cloaking device is much better because you can pre-load it, while you can't do that with the Sanada. Also, check out Jay Scott Berry's Sanada 2003, which is the one I use for multiple silk productions.

Can you produce an 18" square silk from the Cloaking Device?

Check out Jay Scott Berry's "Total Eclipse" DVD for some great ideas for silk work. It can be used to produce one 18" diamond cut silk or multiple smaller silks.

Duane Laflin has a bunch of videos with silk work. I am sure he has a barehand routine in one of them. His website is http://www.laflinmagic.com.

I like the Palmo.

I've got a Jay Scott Berry Cloaking device. You can't produce a massive normal silk from it, but if you use a Diamond Cut silk, you can create the impression of a larger silk being produced as the diamond silk is far less bulky.

I went to the web site but I didn't find any magic, just web hosting stuff? Was that the right site?

Remove the period after the "com" so that the website address reads:

This might sound obvious, but I've found that dropping a rolled-up silk from the sleeve (arm down, while the other hand is making some gesture) is a simple, yet effective way to produce a silk from bare hands.

How do you LOAD a Sanada gimmick?

I've been having one heck of a time with this.

If you want a simple no-fuss bare handed silk production, check McBride’s Magic on Stage Video. The gimmick is a rubber band and your arm. The production is based on Vito Lupo's idea. I think Lupo's production is the one that Joseph Gabriel (?) uses, but I'm not positive.
