To Perform

Hold green silk between first and second fingers of left hand. Hold yellow silk between thumb and first finger of right hand, see Figure 19.

"There were two ladies, each of whom bought herself a new dress. One bought a green dress and the other a yellow one."

Show silks and hands freely.

"One day they happened to meet each other on the street."

Bring handkerchiefs together, placing right hand behind left so that you can grasp corner of yellow silk between first and second fingers of left hand and corner of green silk between second and third fingers of right hand, Figure 20.

Figure 21 is a view toward yourself.

Bring corners of silks down to bases of fingers, twisting green one over to the right and yellow one over to the left. Grasp both corners in right hand, covering them so that audience cannot see them.

Figure 22 shows arrangement of silks and your hands as seen from audience, except that top corners of silks are quickly covered so that audience cannot see them pulled to opposite sides.

"Now the lady with the yellow dress saw the lady with the green dress and her heart sank. She wished that she had bought a green dress instead of a yellow one. The lady with the green dress saw the lady with the yellow one and she, too, felt bad for she wished she had gotten a yellow dress instead of a green one. Being a Magician, I said the Magic words and the green dress changed to yellow and the yellow dress changed to green. And the ladies were happy ever after— for a few minutes. No doubt, you would be amazed to see a lady's dress change color right before your eyes. Then watch the silks that I hold here."

Pull the two silks upward with right hand. The silks are merely changing sides and the top half of one is above the bottom half of the other. To the audience, it appears that each silk hangs straight down from right hand and changes color as you pull it through left hand, Figure 23.

"The green changes to yellow and the yellow to green."

Pull silks clear of left hand and show left hand to be empty, Figure 24.

Figure 22 shows arrangement of silks and your hands as seen from audience, except that top corners of silks are quickly covered so that audience cannot see them pulled to opposite sides.

NOTE: If you wish to present this effect very simply, merely say, "These are odd silks. If I place them together, the green one changes to yellow and the yellow one to green."
