Hi I'm not very well read bout stage magic. But Im really looking forward to start learning it and buying some props. But I wanted to ask a few questions to guide me to get the best props possible with my money. Im also after some more modern teaching dvds if possible as well.
1. Appearing Canes, Disappearing Cane, Color Change Cane:
Metal or plastic which is better?
Which brands are good?
2. Rose/Flower Manipluation (Routines, The roses used for rose manipulation):
Curious if there are standards for manipulation roses for sale or not. Which brand?
Which brands or where can I buy the roses where the bud is removed and then back on the rose again
Are there vases for manipulation purposes? Or is it something I will have to come across myself?
Any rose manipulation dvds out there?
3. Top Hat stand (Basically hat that sits on a cane? The hat is removable).
Brand? Where can I get it?
4. Billiard ball manipulation:
Fakini or Mirage Billiard Balls? Quick one is better quality and better handling?
Any good teaching Dvds? Im kind of after a more modern style if possible, but willing to watch old dvds as well.
Any dvds that cover one hand, four ball production?
