It starts with the production of a single handkerchief at the fingertips, after the hands have been shown empty. The silk color change, through the fist, comes next and the changed silk is pushed back into the fist, where it vanishes.
Next the Stillwell Handkerchief Ball is discussed and examples are shown - a detailed method of loading large quantities of silks in the ball and the proper handling without the use of the customary loop. A simple no hook, clip or tube type of retaining idea is shown and demonstrated for holding silks in position for instant production. The folding and pleating procedure for instantly producing 36" silks is shown along with the folding and looping of large numbers of handkerchiefs. The camera is speeded up to take care of the many minutes required for the actual preparation. Paul devotes some time discussing and showing the wrong and right way to produce a large silk without confusion and tanglement.
