Dove to Silk Mat

by Professor Spellbinder

Before you buy any Dollar Store instructions, go to your local Dollar Store (Quid Store in the U.K.) and make sure you can get the ingredients. Not all Dollar Stores are alike and you may have to hunt through several to find just what you need to make these magic props.

For this effect you will need to buy EITHER two striped or plaid table placemats made of cloth and "hollow" like pillows that have been sewn around on all sides ...

... OR buy THREE table runners (sometimes used for centerpieces like a large long doily to decorate the table and protect it). If the Dollar Store has iron-on tape for fusing cloth together, buy a roll of that, OTHERWISE you will either have to be able to sew OR go to a sewing stroe and buy the fusion tape that allows you to iron two pieces of cloth material together.

You will also need a live dove or any of the substitutes described below, and a silk, or any of the substitutes described below, MOST of which will NOT be found in a Dollar Store.

Then you will be able to use these instructions to convert your materials into a banner that will transform a live dove into a silk handkerchief OR a small plush animal into a silk handkerchief OR a dove into a rope OR a red silk into a blue silk OR a dove into gloves OR a dove into a flower (or flowers) and so on. Transforming small objects by tossing them up into the air is exactly what this Dove to Silk Mat does best!

BONUS DOVE PRODUCTION EFFECTS with reed-style Japanese Table Mats are also included, so if you feel rich, stock up on more of them and make even more killer effects, but don't use all of these effects in the same show! It will just look too matty! You can even make a Dove Color Changing Mat - sort of like a Dove caught in the middle of a Blendo!
