There's a neat item that Aldo Colombini created that involves a silk with a rainbow and pot of gold on it.
Has anyone ever see a silk like this?

That was from his Over the Rainbow trick. I don't recall ever seeing the silk offered as a separate item by the magic shops. But will look through catalogs when I get a chance.

I didn't find a silk like the one used for Over the Rainbow in any of the catalogs:

It is kind of strange given the obvious tie-in between Magic and Leprechauns, etc.

That's it.

I have one of Aldo's ebooks, that's were I saw it written up.
I didn't know it had been a marketed trick.

Thanks

He first released it in early 1990s as a standalone trick with silk, gold coins, and toy leprechaun. He later published it in his Linking Ring column in July 2001 and in a couple of his books.

It was fairly popular. Your best bet may be to post a wanted ad in the tricks for sale section of the Café.

Thanks for the info. The props are nice. What did it sell for?

$25 in 1996. But it was often discounted as part of lecture packages.

Considering all the props, I figured it had to of cost a bit of money. Thanks

I'm a big admirer of Aldo's magic and thinking.
