Card Silk Set
- Difficulty: N/A
- Category: CLOSE-UP MAGIC
- Product Type: MAGIC TRICK
There are many routines published, recorded, and marketed using card silks. A card silk is a silk scarf with a picture of a playing card on it.
Of the many published routines, the most engaging are the ones that use two silks. One with a blank card pictured and one with a playing card. This two-silk set allows you to present sucker like routines with you missing and then making good. It is also an excuse to magically change one silk into another.
Common methods used to switch one for another are: Dye Tube, Open Ended Thumb Tip, Pull, Sleight of Hand, Misdirection, sewing them together, various types of switching apparatus, and of course a Thumb Tip.
Of course, you can always just use the King Silk and keep it in your pocket until the King of Hearts is selected and use it as a big reveal. And for a magical finish you can just make it vanish using a tip.
Our silk set which was made with the Thumb Tip method in mind includes two 9-inch silks: A full-color blank card and a full-color King of Hearts card. The silks are ideal for thumb tip work since one can easily fit inside a standard tip.
