    What is that trick called?

    Okay I have been looking and cannot find it, but what is the trick called where you pull what seems an endless amount of handkerchiefs through your mouth?! I have been digging for some good magic tricks for a show such as some easy mentalism tricks, balloon tricks maybe and looking for a decent coin pail for that fun coin routine.

    But back to the point of the thread if anyone knows that handkerchief trick i am looking for please reply its secret is killing me haha

    I think you might be looking for mouth coils. They are not actually hanks though, more of a "tissue" paper consistency.

    Personally haven't seen anything else that's similar.

    I would advise against that. Mentalism is a different beast and it's not advised to be mixing it with gags like mouth coils.

    It can be done with silks knotted together, but the setup and the sleights involved are... less convenient. The paper coils are a much better option unless you have the patience and are planning to do something else with all those silks.

    Exactly why I seem to stick to cards, coins and rubber bands these days :-) haha

    I guess that rules out my mind reading rubber chicken routine.
