The Levent episode on Fool Penn and Teller just aired in LA last weekend. I just happen to turn it on not expecting because I thought he was already on the show. Good work as always.

I don't like Penn and Teller's explanation of the trick. Of course sleight of hand was done. Simply saying that sleight of hand was done doesn't mean you know the trick. But, I think Levent knows that Penn and Teller was aware of what method he used and didn't press it.

I just lover polka dot material, I don't know why, but I think it is very appealing.

Funny that you should write that Bill! I feel exactly the same way about polka dots!
I remember seeing Pavel perform live in Boston around 1973 and he did a series of silk productions that used polka dot silks.
I have since forgotten the exact effects, but I strongly recall how much I wanted a set of those silks!

BTW- according to Alan Flusser, who is a recognized expert and author on Classic Menswear.... Polka dots were the original first pattern used on men's neckties... So there must be something to it all!

Yes, and Julia Roberts looked exceptionally good in that brown and white Polka Dot dress in Pretty Woman.

It's been a while and was wondering if there was any update on the Ultimate Guide to the Sympathetic Silks?

Wally, Paul Pottassy didn't use silks or at least magician silks. He used Nylon scarves bought from a woman's fashion store. If you search polka dot, head scarves you'll find a number of selections available.

You can also go to a well stocked fabric store and find a polka dot print you like and have squares made from it.

Finally you can simply buy silks (magician silks) of the size and background color and take them to a silk-screen artist and have them custom silk-screened in the colors you want.

Keep checking eBay for vintage head scarves and you might just find what you are looking for.

Lester, Levent has not produced his DVD on the Sympathetic Silks as of yet. He is busy performing and taking care of David Copperfield collection of magic in his warehouse, and who knows what else he is working on in magic. He keeps himself very busy.
