This trick is certainly a classic trick, but.. I have sensed from the audiences I have performed
for, that it is really fading out of popularity. Either people have seen it before, and even though
it would be impressive, they are bored with it, or else they find it too juvenile to be pleased. I'm
not sure, but I have always gotten unsatisfying results with this one. Can't say I recommend it.

Not something I use in my routine these days but definitely a classic. This is especially great for
younger audiences and children.

I added the thumb trick to my speaking opportunities and had my business card made out of the silk.
My first try 4 years ago brought down the house when I taught 120 new magicians the magic. Now I am
"well known" and it is not unusual to hear, Hey Dennis I have your thumb in my room, what are you up
to next? From across the room, embarrassing for the other speakers that put pages and page3s of info
in a great package. I get calls they get to do theirs again.
This young man teaches clearly with style! I'd like to see more thumb tip lessons with him
featured. Thank you!

Here is a classic trick that has been around for a long time. The best part about this trick is that
there are no pull or reels involved so you can perform this in short sleeves. To start, you can
actually show your hands empty. Just push the cloth into your hand and it vanishes. The best part
is, that unlike the traditional way, you can made the silk re-appear. Hand the silk out, show your
hands empty and you're good to go. Just be sure you practice in front of a mirror so you can make it
look real good.
Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
This is a classic effect that
every beginner should have in their starting arsenal. I'm not a big fan of this particular effect,

A great introduction to a very important gimmick. If you watched the video and don't know how its
done then go ahead and add to cart now- you will not regret it and you will receive a very important
and versatile gimmick!
The gimmick included will allow you to perform hundreds of different miracles, and is a valuable
asset to ANY magician, if you do not own some form of this trick, add to cart now! it is an amazing
gimmick, the vanishing silk is a bit overdone, and revealed constantly, so many people know how it
is done, but you should buy this anyway!
