Tell the Easter story with eye-popping colourful visual magic with our unique version of 20th Century Silks.
Never fails to get a WOW from audiences of all ages.
Even easier with the special gimmick we've provided.
Two blue handkerchiefs are tied together, the knot in the middle is pushed into a clear tumbler or wine glass. A red hanky is pushed into the performer's hands and instantly disappears. Where has it gone? The performer's hands are empty! The ends of two blue hankies are pulled out of the glass and the red hanky magically reappears…tied between two others!
Magicians will recognise this as the classic 20th Century Silk effect. But now it comes with a very special gimmick that allows you to disappear the red silk in your bare hands.
You can even perform this with a volunteer, pushing the knot of the blue hanky into their shirt or jacket pocket.
The vanishing and appearing red hanky is a powerful illustration of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Watch Dan's presentation in the video.
You explain that the Disciples are very upset - Jesus is dead - and you show how they wiped away their tears away with the blue hankies. Then you tie the two blue hankies together - the Disciples are anxious and confused - they are tied up in knots!
You explain the Pharisees are celebrating by waving the red hanky in the air. Push the red hanky into your hand and make it vanish illustrating how they think Jesus is dead and buried. All their problems have gone!
But three days later there's a surprise. You take hold of the blue hankies and pull - the red hanky magically appears in the middle, just as Jesus unexpectedly appeared to the disciples.
Hold the three hankies up in the applause pose as it's time to put out the bunting and have a party!
And the applause will be deafening!
BONUS GIMMICK INCLUDED
We've provided a very special gimmick to vanish the hanky from your bare hands. No it's not a thumb tip - it's a Silk Pull. A very versatile utility device used by generations of magicians to vanishing hankies and other objects from their hands.
The Pull can be used to vanish all sorts of objects:
- Sponge balls
- Small toys
We think the new silk pull and 21st Century Silk work together especially well, they go hand in hand and make for an easy but amazing routine!
BONUS GOSPEL MESSAGES
A great investment as you can use these props through out the year.
- Sin GONE!
Use a single red silk handkerchief to represent sin. As you push the hanky into your hands talk about God forgives our sins when our hands come together in prayer and ask for forgiveness. Open your hands - and the hanky/sin has gone.
- The Meaning of Easter
Use the silk pull to vanish a small toy rabbit or chick, and explain how some people think Easter is just about cute animals and chocolate! However, as Christians we know that Easter means so much more - and open your hand to show the rabbit or chick has vanished.
- The Meaning of Christmas
Vanish a small present or figure of Santa as you talk about the need to forget much of the nonsense around Christmas and focus on the real story.
And lots more!
