Daylight Seance Cloth
A one-man spiritualistic feature that is suitable for parlor, club or stage. Unprepared articles such as a bell, tambourine, slates, etc. are examined and placed on an ordinary table. After showing both sides of a cloth square, the performer holds the cloth with both hands so as to momentarily hide the articles on the table. Immediately the bell is heard to ring, the tambourine plays and rattles, a message appears on the slates, objects fly over the top edge of the cloth and many other spooky manifestations occur. Both sides of the cloth may be shown at any time and the articles may be examined at any time during the seance. Performer’s hands, holding the cloth, may be seen at all times.
This baffling spirit seance is easily performed in any fully lighted room and without the aid of assistants.

1. Many items are on the table, such as tambourine, a bell, cups, a pitcher of water and a glass, etc. You can ring the bell, shake the tambourine or toss a bugle from the table into the air. You can create a séance in full light. You can pour a glass of water or wine, etc.
2. Bob Swadling of England uses this to change costumes. The back of the cloth holds a small cloth bag in which are several props. Hold the cloth in front of your body. Lift it up so that it covers your face. Under cover, your other hand puts on a pair of glasses or a hat. Lower the cloth to show the change. Lift again for mustache or hat etc.
3. Ventriloquists can use this with a puppet hanging behind the cloth. The free hand enters the puppet body and it can come up to speak or move while the cloth is-still apparently held by the ventriloquist. (See Ventriloquism: Magic With Your Voice, Schindler for detailed workings.
You can paint a hand with white latex paint so that it resembles a gloved hand. You can then wear a pair of white gloves and have no fear about the color of the false hand matching your own hand.
