I saw one of my favorite children performers performing a multiplying silks style routine where he takes a silk out of his breast pocket, and suddenly another one appears.. Everytime a silk is removed from the pocket another appears in the same pocket which drives all the kids crazy. Can anybody point me in the direction to learn this style of routine to learn. Thank you!

It's based on Kleenex.

I couldn't resist. However, if you're still looking for where to learn to become a human dispenser of silks, try Rice's Encyclopedia of Silk Magic, Volume 1, Chapter 4: "Methods of Producing a Single Silk" (Non-Apparatus Methods).

Hello MetalMaster. I hope this response is not too late, but for what it's worth, Harold Taylor in his book "Magic as Entertainment" writes that he learned the "silks from pocket" from Eric Lewis's book "Open Sesame." It's out of print, but I think you can still find it online.

This book ( Open Sesame ) is available currently at Penguin Magic and Vanishing Inc. This is the part of the Supreme Magic publications that were in storage in England and finally released for sale to the magic community. Most of the stock has been sold, but this book is still on several websites. Get it while you can if you do Children shows.

Can somebody please explain to me how you "twist the corners together" as explained in Open Sesame? I am trying this but it is not working.

For a follow-up, try "Snap Silks", as taught by Duane Laughlin for example.
