New from Mark Leveridge Magic. Here are the latest two additions to the Select range of products, and are only available for a limited period of time. 1. Silk On Rope. A length of rope is openly displayed and can be examined if required. The magician ties a knot in the rope centre and instantly as the knot is formed a 12″ silk appears hanging inside the knot! This silk appearance can either be used as a quick effect on its own or at any point in a longer routine as the method is both practical and versatile. 2. The Coins Box. Opening a square jewellery box the magician reveals two coins, a half dollar and a £2 coin, lying on a square of foam inside. The coins are lifted out and displayed as is the foam to show that the box is otherwise empty. The £2 is dropped into the box and the foam square placed on top of it. The half dollar is then positioned on top of the foam and the lid slipped back on. Moments later, the lid is removed to reveal a transposition has taken place, as the £2 is now on TOP of the foam and the half dollar is discovered underneath. Extremely easy to do this requires no sleight of hand. Each download costs just £7.00 (£3.50 for members of E-Club Pro). To watch dems and to order go to 13.7.24
