|-||This latex paint formula was invented by Judges Charles W. Fricke and Caryl Fleming, and marketed by Fleming in 1937. However, the idea of using rub-off pips is very old and is described in early conjuring texts, in which pomatum (a sticky ointment) and jet were used for the same purpose. This appears in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/5309/The+Conjuror+s+Magazine+electronic+resource/62|The Conjuror's Magazine]]//, No. 1, Aug. 1791, p. 83, although it was possibly drawn from an earlier work by Joseph Pinetti or elsewhere.||+||This latex paint formula was invented by Judges Charles W. Fricke and Caryl Fleming, and marketed by Fleming in 1937. However, the idea of using rub-off pips is very old and is described in early conjuring texts. The original form of the principle involved cutting out a pip from one card and sticking it onto another, making a four appear to be a five, or an eight a nine, for example. When the card was turned face down, the magician would steal the additional pip away to effect a change. This was published in Horatio Galasso's //[[http://askalexander.org/display/13226/Gibeci+re/61|Giochi di carte bellissimi de regola, e di memoria]]//, 1593, p. 61 of the Pieper translation. This book was translated and published in //Gibecière//, Vol. 2 No. 2, Summer 2007, p. 15-150.|
