Steven, look at www.pattsmatts.com there is a short video on the home page that explains folding mats and another video that explains the performing materials. On the website there are two smaller folding mats. The pocketbook mat and The Born Book mat. For something larger you can select any mat and select the folding mat option to create the bi folding and tri folding options. Either way the folded mat is half the size of the open mat. We also are introducing a new Sam Allen hard back mat and carry case. You will need to use info@pattsmatts.com for details. Hope this helps.
check out www.pattricksmagic.com for the best in close up pads and tables.

Perfect.

Thanks

I have 3 Trevor Duffy Closeup pads (14x18).

Best closeup pads I have ever used. If they wrinkle or get soiled, wash 'em, let them dry, and they are good as new. HIGHLY recommended!

Another choice: A microfiber dish drying mat. Only $1 at a dollar store, 2 or 3 at a large discount store (these tend to be larger and nicer colors or patterns). Advantage: can fold or roll up very tight. Disadvantage: may not be the texture or firmness you prefer. If you have a mat, you could carry one as a backup or impromptu mat.

Funny thing! I saw this and went to look at my drying mats. Unfortunately they are not a color I would want in a mat but interesting idea.

Another surface type that hasn't been mentioned unless it went over my head is card/poker table surface or Black Jack/Craps mat. I personally don't like this type of surface and I don't like it when magic dealer's close-up pad adds don't mention it when the particular pad has such surface.

I have a folding version made by Pattrick and it has been my favorite. Thank You, Pattrick!

Any suggestion as to which of Patrick's mats would be best for the 3 shell game? My current mat is one of the 'standard' mats available from Murphy's, and doesn't have enough 'give'. A vague request, I know, but any input would be appreciated.

Contact Pat. He is a true gentleman and is an honest businessman.

Just spoke with Patt. What a nice guy! Ordered a tri-fold black plush mat. Thanks again, Wravyn.

Received my mat yesterday. Trifold plush, original material. A thing of absolute beauty, and a pleasure to do business with Patt. My shells love this mat! Smile Thanks again, Wravyn for suggesting that I call Patt.

I'm looking for a good close up pad that I could use specifically for "The Moon" and general cars coin work.

Close-Up Pads

Throughout the past two years people have been messaging me about Close-Up pads, I studied with Dean Dill for 8 years until his passing. Before he passed away he taught me and my Father how to make them. I am happy to announce they are now available!!!! They also are more affordable for the quality and durability. I had 25 Pads and brought them to magic live 2018 and they sold out instantly. Since then many people have been asking about them. We also have some new unique patterns that are available. Shoot me a message and I can send pictures! If anyone is interested feel free to shoot me a text (661)309-8719 or email @mbarry@socal.rr.com
You can also reach me through Facebook : Griffin Barry
