Pardon what is probably a question that has been asked many times before, but I can't quite find what I'm looking for with the quicksearch.

Could someone please help me locate material on doing color changes with sponge balls? I don't care what kind of format - books, e-downloads, dvds - whatever.

I'd like one decent resource to get started and maybe a second or third possibility to build on.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Royal Magic-25 Amazing Tricks with a Sponge Ball. Any magic shop will have this. This is a simple cheap intro to sponge ball magic and has a color change routine in it. I have the book and DVD I can let go of. If you are interested PM me.

If you become familiar with a basic spellbound routine, you can apply some of the moves to sponge balls. The original spellbound from Dai Vernon can be found in The Stars of Magic.

You could get McBrides Manipulation set.. The moves are for manipulation balls but could be adapted to sponges in some cases.

Check into the Sanada Gimmick. It might give you a starting point.

Try and take a look at some of Jay Scott Berry's work.

In my routine there is an early stage where I do a continuous production. As I produce a new yellow sponge ball in the right, my left hand comes out from the pocket with a palmed red sponge ball. Then as the right hand yellow sponge is passed to the left hand the right steals the red ball. Then the yellow ball is clearly placed in the pocket... and the red ball is produced as another red ball comes out palmed in the lef to continue the continuous production with the red ball. It's not a color change in itself but the color of the balls are changing in the middle of the routine.
If you want an actual color change search in the billiard balls routines you will find a wider choice of moves (which are easier ot perform with sponge balls) than in sponge balls books.

Harry Lorayne's Apocalypse, Vol 4 (I'm 95% certain it's volume four - when I get home I'll check) has a color changing sponge ball routine.

I'm not sure which issue it's in because I bought the bound volumes (what a treasure!!)
