Nice one, Pop! Thanks for posting the video.

A scarf with a different colour on each side...
Florists wrap a bunch of flowers with rather stiff paper that has a different colour on each side. Maybe that could be used to
some effect in magic?
The presentation makes the magic.

If you check out Scott Alexander's Penguin lecture (Live 3) which was a free Christmas lecture from Penguin (currently $29 now)

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/6354

He does a multi color silk production as part of a routine. I recently used this at an event as a crowd gathering and worked great. You could easily then transition into a dye tube.

I'd never used silks before, but the color and the movement really catches the eye. Will likely incorporate them more. Besides Pop Haydn's stuff, Michael Ammar does some cool silk work...

Duke Stern (Abbott's) used a Hunts tomato paste can.

Yup! I realized years ago, that silks packed small and light, and added flash to a small prop program. I wrote up all my silk routines in the book. Color change 20th C.,"Slydini", Serpentine, etc. I especially like my routine for he ELUSIVE SILK VANISH. It needs NO SET UP!

my experience as a teenager in the '40s, working in a ten in one helped me to realize early, what plays in situations like busking!

Rice no longer makes a Palmo. They are completely out of stock and they will not be making anymore.

I have a Rice Palmo. It's literally Brand New, still wrapped in that paper stuff they used to send it in. It's never seen the light of day. I was going to keep it because they are not made anymore, but I would never use it because I don't do anything that needs a Palmo. I'll part with it for 25 pounds. If you want it, send me a PM and I'll give you my Paypal info.

I'm sure glad I learned to make color change gimmicks from Dollar Store Materials. It's in Dollar Store Magic Book 2 on The Magic Nook if you don't know how. 25 pounds = $30.42. I'll keep my valuable old Palmo in the safe and use my plastic home-made gimmicks on the street.

Whit aka Pop your silk performance was hilarious. We don't ever utter the phrase "Do you guys want to see some magic?" We exclaim do y'all want to see something that will not only blow your brain but also entertain? Its yours to keep Poppa...

Thanks, Devious! I use the magic question because the color-changing hank follows the 6 Card Repeat, which is supposedly "just" a "classic mathematical" card trick. See you Sunday!

If looking to experiment with some home made building...5 hour energy drinks come in nifty little plastic bottles with nice rounded shoulder. Take off label, cut accordingly (take two, cut off necks, cut in half, and glue). Then some paint or flesh tape and you'll have a nice dye tube to play with.

I have recently go the download Palmo, The Laflin Silk series 4. It is a great DVD with lots of ideas and variations all based around the technique of using this gimmick.

This has been very helpful and well worth a look.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

I started with a 75 cent hand dye tube in 1947. --bought in Bob Stull's shop in San Francisco. I told the story in my book, of Senor Charlesl MARDO, and, his giving me a 30 minute lesson in how to use it. I bless him, every time that I open the show with the dye tube. Years later, I bought one from Johnson products, and it has done a "few" thousand shows. "Them there classic tricks" are worth learning!
