Demon Sand Trick

The magician mixes together red, white and blue sand in a bowl of water and shows the audience that they are well mixed by pouring the wet sand through their hands. After a magic word, the magician is able to pull out a handful of each coloured sand separately, pouring it into a bowl to show that it is now completely dry. Complete with Davenports instructions. The illustrations here show the canisters of sand as well as two pages from a 1937 Davenports Demon Telegraph magazine. The magazine advertisement makes it clear that customers could purchase more than one option of the trick.
