A great introduction to Sponge magic, even teaching you how to make your own set out of household sponges!
The fundamental techniques are taught that are used in almost every sponge routine, along with the classic 1-10 Counting sequence. The 4 Ball routine taught here tells you a perfect way to get into the routine, exactly what to say during the routine, and a professional way to wrap things up.
In between the teaching and performing, I continue giving advice that gives you a broader understanding of why you do things in certain ways.
The final effect in this chapter is a really nice handling of a Cut-and-Restored Twine that’ll fool everyone who isn’t familiar with the principle and most of the ones who are!
