Single Slate Writing


Performer shows one slate, both sides blank. He places slate on table in full view of audience and mysteriously a message appears.


This is the same flap method as used in Method 1 of Double Slate Writing.

Write message on the slate and cover with flap. Have a few pieces of newspaper on table. In performing, show both sides of slate, then place slate flat down on table for a moment to drop flap on pieces of newspaper. Pick up slate again and stand it against something, message side away from audience. Or slate may be wrapped in newspaper and given to spectator to hold. At proper moment spectator removes newspaper and reveals message. Or with proper showmanship you turn slate around and show message.

Another way is to start to place slate in cloth bag, then suddenly decide to wrap in newspaper; you leave flap in bag.
