Apparently so based on a quick web search of "water soluble oil". I always wondered how this stuff worked. We had small buckets of it hanging from machine tools in high school shop class, and it was also pumped over metal being machined to keep it cool.
Thats cool - very helpful. Thank you. I am getting more and more bookings can anyone suggest a book on the actual logistics of being a kids show entertainer. Like, if I am doing 6 - 8 shows over the weekend then the Vanishing bandana (which is consistantly the kids favorite) becomes impossible unless I buy loads of gear. Banana is not too kind to my flash fairy frocks. And I am not including enough time to pack up and reset my gear. And how is it best to store props. Travel around, set up. etc. Hey no wonder magicians get paid much more than storytelling fairies! It is so much fun doing magic. I love it when the parents all gasp too.
