 Post subject: Help With Silk & Dollar Routine

Here's my routine so far...

Hands are shown empty. Dollar is borrowed.

Dollar is rolled into a tube. Silk is pulled out.

Dollar is crumpled and appears to be placed into silk. It vanishes. The silk is shown empty.

A little paper ball is produced from the elbow.

A lighter is now produced from the silk.

The lighter is lit, and the paper ball touches the flame. In a flash it turns to the dollar.

The way I am setup at that point is my TT hiding behind my silk, which is hanging out of a pocket on my jacket.

My lighter is in my hand, along with a dollar.

I need to return the borrowed dollar, make the lighter vanish, and then make the silk vanish.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I can take out the silk and make the silk vanish into the TT, then while acting as if I'm trying to produce it from my elbow, ditch the lighter into my collar.

This doesn't really have the attention on the lighter when it is being vanished though, which I don't like. And I have no reason to be holding the lighter while you vanish the silk.

I want the audience to be paying attention when I vanish the lighter, and I want to vanish the silk last.

Any help is appreciated.

The production of "the little paper ball" seems illogical as an intermediary step to reproducing the dollar bill: From the audience's POV, if you can produce a little paper ball from your elbow, why not simply produce the dollar bill from your elbow?

Man, elbows hold lots of stuff! I can never find anything in mine.

Point taken.

I want some motivation for the use of the lighter... can you suggest anything other than a flash dollar effect?

If you are insistant on keeping your routine as described, you can use a Topit for the lighter and a Pull for the silk to end. Of course, you will need to be wearing a jacket...if that's not a problem.
