"Amazingly, everyone commented on the visual representation of Easter and how they felt it was very personal. Worth every penny..." Fiona Solman
'I’ve now used Cross and Silks off Rope a couple of times, always with great effect. It really makes a powerful point and I love how the volunteers get to be involved too. Plenty of room too for the various ‘bits of business’ that make these effects so entertaining.' Rev'd Stephen Froggatt
A memorable and visual illustration of the power of the cross to set us free from sin.
This is a classic of gospel magic and has proven itself countless times as a true highlight of any magician's show. This is ideal for a big finish!
A wooden stick is shown - representing the I in SIN. Ropes are then tied round it and the stick is suspended in the middle - each end hled by a volunteer. Five coloured silk hankies are loosely tied onto the rope and gathered together in the centre. Red represents anger, Blue for regret, Green for envy, Yellow for cowardice and white for self justification.
The wooden stick becomes a cross. One of the ropes is then tied around the silks. Then the cross is pulled from the middle of the ropes and the silks dropped to the floor. The volunteers are still holding the ends of the rope!
Everything you need for the Ultimate Gospel Message
The stick is specially adapted so the middle section swings out and forms a cross. With the use of a wand you also have the option to do the non-Gospel version of the trick - the children's classic - the Magic Washing Line
Based on the old effect called the Magic Washing Line' this illusion is:
- Easy to do
- Very visual
- Powerful Gospel Message
- Great for performing on stage or in front of a congregation
- Packs small
- Can be used again and again
You will receive the 23 inch high stick to cross, x2 six foot lengths of magicians soft cotton rope, x 5 eighteen inch coloured silks and an instruction booklet with the full routine and illustrated instructions.
"Used this for the full sermon slot in our two main Easter Sunday morning services, with adults holding on to the ends of the ropes (took about 10 minutes, with the associated chat). I was nervous about tying the knots the right way round, but need not have worried, as it worked perfectly. Amazingly, everyone commented on the visual representation of Easter and how they felt it was very personal. Worth every penny..."
