I'm working on "Silk News" from Rice's Encyclopedia of Silk Magic. (Vol. 1, Pg. 222)

I also have instruction for Max Andrews' "The Vampire". They seem essentially the same.

I'm having some wrist and angle problems and wondering about how others have dealt with some of my issues.

I've only seen the effect once in person, maybe 15 years ago (Jade) but I was VERY impressed (of course).

I'm wondering if anyone has a link to anyone performing this effect?

I tried youtube but got nothing. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a whole act link that may include this effect.

I'm also interested in any tips someone may have if they perform this effect.

P.M. me if you wish.

Thank you.

Mary,
I will dig out the old directions I have. Angles are a problem but you can either dover them to side or work in front of your body tight. Think of your arm as clock hand moving from 3 o clock to 6 clock and back. Also keep the paper grasped by the edge with the hand holding gimmick. Then the paper can be used for cover.

Look up Jade on Youtube as she does it in her act.

An alternate gimmick is worn on the wrist and is covered and uncovered as the jacket or costume sleeve slides over it or away from it, thus reducing most angle problems.

This use to be an old effect used with a matchbox for the gimmick. Being that it is old, I can't think of an old timer that used it on television. I'm sure it has to be out there though.

This is not the same one.

I'm thinking that because I am not a Chavez Graduate I haven't trained the wrist muscles I need so I'm getting quite a bit of soreness. The needed positions are feeling quite awkward.

I'll keep at it and see how it goes.

So far I have not found anyone doing it on youtube.
