I checked his website and no mention of him selling any streamers. IF they are silk streamers, then they usually do not come with instructions for what to do with them. Most people who buy silk streamers have a purpose for them. Usually a production to produce birds.

Actually they are available google Andy Amyx streamer. I aquired these from a estate for my daughter to perform. They are paper streamers as well in a pouch and called kabuki streamers. I need to figure out how to use them for Tomorrow if anyone can help me please!

Kabuki streamers are a finale product. Put your finger in the paper ring and hold in your hand. There is a knack to throwing them properly. Using an underhand throw, your arm swings out, but at the height of the toss you have to freeze the hand and arm. Do not pull back at all, if you do the streamer will not fully open. Makes a nice arch like fireworks in the sky. This is not a trick, but just an nice display for your ending. While the streamer is falling, it looks nice to gather the streamer in, with one hand, and the hand's index and thumb makes a circle around the individual strands, pulling it through with the other hand, gathering the strands as they are falling.

You just have to practice with a couple to get the idea. Go outside, and hope there is little or no wind.

Just before the throw, you have to tear into the ball, if you have the large real kabuki that sell for $15 each, and hold closed until the release at the point mentioned above.

As for obtaining, you have to steal the bundle from a hidden place without the audience noticing, that all depends on you act and table/prop set up, or the clothing the performer wears. I used then with a confetti and umbrella production finale.

Just looked up and yes, Penguin Magic lists them. I would say these are not real Kabuki streames, but the smaller version. If it has the paper strip around them, then just break the strip, and with your closed fist, work some the cover paper open a little, then throw/toss.

Look up Jeff McBride, he ends most all his show with a real Kabuki streamer.

I forgot to say, that flicking with the thumb helps propel the streamer from the hand.
