-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 (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]]//, No1Aug1791, p. 83although 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 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, p61 of the Pieper translation. This book was translated and published in //​Gibecière//​Vol2 No. 2, Summer 2007, p. 15-150.
