This is the granddaddy of the Color Changing Silk routines.
The Half-Dyed Silk was devised and made famous by Billy Mc Comb (as per Mc Comb’s Magic – 1972*). Manufacturing permission granted to Viking Magic by Billy Mc Comb.
*NOTE: This is Billy’s improved method, given to Viking Magic at the World Magic Seminar-2006 using his latest improved magnetic hold-out.
The performer passes a white hank through his closed fist where it emerges a bright red. Then the performer decides to let the audience in on his little swindle. He uses two hanks!
He now demonstrates how they can go home and amaze their friends, but something goes wrong and the silk hank comes out dyed half and half; half red, half white!
Not to worry, says the performer, because you need real magic to get out of this one, and he slowly passes the half-dyed hank through his hand and it emerges all red!
The audience finds that he has been fooling them all the time and they really never did learn how the hank changed colors.
Some of the greats have made hits with this routine in their show: Billy Mc Comb, Mark Wilson, Carl Ballentine and others.
Comes complete with all the necessary props; 15″ silks and detailed professional instructions.
