What is the colour of one of these like?

I'm quite pale skinned, would it affect how it would look in my hand?

Like a thumb tip, the color is not as important as some seem to think. However, a bit of make up can handle it if you are concerned about it.

Does anyone use the gimmick in question to vanish a silk barehanded? If so, what is the maximum size silk that could be vanished? I have a very thin Italian silk that is 18 inches I want to vanish. Thanks.

Like most gimmicks it's what you do with it that counts. I don't use mine at all, but I don't have Scott's routine either. I look at what effects that I want to present and then see which gimmicks can help. I do have a thing about natural hand actions, but some practice will help overcome that. It's cheap enough to find out if it's for you or not.

Scott is your routine available to buy over here in England from anyone?

It's available only through me, due to cost considerations--I would lose money on it by offering it through dealers.

Scott, about the routine you teach on your video, I have gathered it uses the SG, can it be done without the SG?

I know with a bit of imagination a lot of things could be done, but do you explain a cleaner method?

I'm getting the DVD soon and will probably get a SG just for trial.

JamesInLA... bare handed vanish? Use a pull if you can, or a hank ball and ditch in topit, pocket... make it simple.

There isn't a cleaner method as far as I'm concerned. But yes, I used to do the vanish without the gimmick before I knew about it. I'd do a false transfer and reach into the pocket for the purse frame. I don't think it's nearly as clean or strong, though and now I always use the gimmick whenever I perform the routine.

In answer to JamesInLA's question about a one-handed vanish with a SG, I don't think that would be practical. The silk has to be pretty small and flat at the moment of vanish. And with that much heat on it, I don't think the SG would be a good choice. The SG is far better for flash appearances from an "empty hand." (Or at least it seems that way to me.)

Henry Evans has a great combination silk vanish (left hand - doesn't use a SG) with a simultaneous one handed silk appearance (right hand - benefits from a SG). I can't recall the name he gave it, but it is in his lecture notes, and possibly on one of his DVDs. Henry's lecture was the first time I saw an SG used, so I bought one immediately, and now have another with Scott's PB & J.

I also saw a great impromptu SG that was a bonus on the "underground" Torn and Restored Newspaper video offered here at The Magic Café a while back by FTAMagician.

I own one and have never tried applying it.
It would be nice for bare handed productions.
I can see some real value in a sponge balls routine, as well as coins.

So what's the best source for information on working with the Sanada? I'm looking for sleights, moves and subtlety instead of entire routines. Or is it too new?

So who's going to write "Fifty Tricks with a Sanada Gimmick?"

The Sanada gimmick is actually very old.

I'm not an expert on the device, but Jay Scott Berry has some good ideas on it and he even markets some variations of the gimmick itself.

Also, as I mentioned in a previous posting, Henry Evans has a great use for the standard gimmick in a "back in time" type of routine that uses a clear glass and a silk. I don't want to reveal too much, but he uses the Sanada gimmick to Han Ping Chien a silk! Talk about thinking outside of the box.

Scott is obviously a master with the Sanada. I bought it early on; no one had much to offer on it. It seemed clumsy and awkard with very little space. I gave it up immediately and have no desire to relearn it, but Scott should put out a video on this. His posts indubitably indicate that he really has much to offer on it.

Bobdomerous,
Just noticed your post. My sentiments exactly. You already have my nomination, Scotty.

Only use it for vanishing my "glowing" sponge rabbit routine for kids, in combination with a D'lite combo.
There's not room for much more in my hands, but this routine works out well.... Smile

Hi Scott,

Did you ever post a vid? And, do you have a web site?

Thanks,

Bruce, I think Scott's website and "stuff" have been abandoned.

So I think your answer is NO!

Thanks Frank (I keep running in to you here). That's too bad. He seemed to have some good "stuff" going.
