Spirit / seance cloth learning resources?

Postby Arcato » June 25th, 2016, 7:54 am

Hello,
I'm looking for learning resources on how to perform the seance or spirit cloth effectively. Most performances I've seen so far have been rather weak and obvious to the audience. Only Xavier Mortimer has done an excellent job (as he always does) in his mirror act.
So far I've only been able to locate "The Spirit Cloth Book" by Algonquin McDuff. Are there any other book(let)s or DVDs available?
Or is it just look and learn and improve by trial and error?

Thanks,
Uwe

I published a very simple, basic routine (yet effective and spooky) called "Seance" in The Little Egypt Book of Ghosts. Ah, but I published it first in Genii in the June 1989 issue, so you can look it up if you are a subscriber.

Thanks Steve,
I am a Genii subscriber and I just read your routine. Very nice idea, thanks for pointing this out to me!
