Isn't that just a dye tube? Smile

Just a reply to some recent comments: A considerable amount of people that I have performed silk+TT work for before know something or another about these "fake thumbs". I've heard it said that "Even if they do know how it is done, if you perform it well enough people won't think they see it- adding to the illusion. They'll be looking for the TT and when they don't find it, because of your good performance, they'll be baffled".

There is a degree to which I think that is true. But I think there is also a degree to which I don't. I'm not really sure what side I lean towards. I don't think I perform it the best, but surely I'm not so awful as to be giving the audience a tutorial on silk+TT magic. Maybe I'm not good at all and I need to practice. Well, I do know I need practice, though.

The TT I've landed on for know is actually some random TT from China. I ordered a bunch of random TT's from China, and they didn't include any tracking info or branding. It has a reasonable size and matches my skin nicely in most light.

It's sounds like it's time you looked into a finger tip and/or a sixth finger...

Nope! It's a "double ended TT!

TTs are made in a machine that makes two at a time. Then they are cut in half to get two TTs.

I was helping Tom Ladshaw unpack several hundred, and found one that "missed" the 'cutter'!

Yeah, I have been doing other things. It's a little more complicated than that--I was working on cup and balls, performed before a friendly (magician) audience, and got stuck, and only recently figured things out.

I have been a lot more music lately. Beyond the recorders, I did a lot of work on my lap harp, a bladder pipe, a double recorder, etc. In September I bought a hurdy-gurdy (!) and I've done some work on it. It's only been since the beginning of December since my mind has been able to focus on magic, and I am getting better at focusing on a few tricks rather than trying to grab at everything. Maybe I might even had a video in the near future.

More on target for Will Lane--I think I said it before, silks are the obvious combinations for TT, but there are so many other less obvious things that could be done. One of my favorites is disappearing and reappearing salt. Drop the silks (which I thought looked good) and try some of these others--that way you can gain confidence and later go back to the silks.

Just an idea.
