This is a very neat impromptu effect that is easily carried in the pocket. Great for children's entertainers as well as adult venues.
An 18" length of rope is used to perform the famous Hindu Rope Trick. The performer tries in vein to make the rope stand rigid. Finally in disgust he says, "How about a trick with a red silk hank?" As he passes his hand over the rope it VISIBLY changes into a red silk handkerchief!
This is a self-contained effect that is so easy to do even a 7 year old could do it. Quick and easy reset. Great for table-hopping, etc.
