I have been thinking about the possibilty of doing magic UNDERWATER in full Scuba suit.

Apart from dove pans and multiplying balls, what other effect do you think could be done?

In Paul Osborne's book Build Your Own Illusions Vol 2 on page 90 there are pictures of plastic illusions built to be performed underwater. He mentioned thin sawing, sub trunk and Princess of Thebes as examples.

Dan Harlan's underwater cigarrette routine is fun. But it isn't full scuba.

This was all done in the 1950’s by James Crabe (aka Aubrey) on a TV how called You Asked for It. Cigarettes, cards, and more!
Aside from this stunt, he appeared on that show on multiple occasions and was a class act manipulator. his billiards, cards and candle act was impeccable.

Off the Deep end with Penn & Teller explored this idea.

Some of the things Teller performed are Color changing silks, Appearing Flowers, Appearing fish bowl, Million Dollar Mystery, Sawing in Half and Metamorphosis.

It is not possible to make a big illusion with water resistant wood ?
Now the properties of plywood are impressing
