This is a mystifying way of vanishing and producing from one to four silk handkerchiefs in the hands.
Performer's sleeves are rolled up to the elbow. He picks up a handkerchief, rolls it up between his hands, and it suddenly vanishes. Magician shows both sides of hands empty. Then he suddenly pulls out the silk. This is continued with several handkerchiefs.
1--A Handkerchief Ball.
The Ball is made of thin brass or aluminum. It is about 1 3/4 inches in diameter with an opening in one side a little over an inch in diameter. At the top of the Ball are two small holes through which a thin piece of catgut (or fine white thread) is threaded.
The size of the catgut loop depends on size of performer's hand. It should be the proper length so that when Ball is suspended from right thumb, Ball comes to middle of palm.
