-The idea taking ​a deck that has been telescoped with an incomplete faro and brushing it over the rubber side of close-up mat to leave behind single cards was first published by Roger Curzon as "Wipe Out the Aces" ​in the March, 1982 issue of //Spell-Binder//​ magazine (Vol. 1, No. 11). Douglas A. Wicks later published the same idea in //​Apocalypse//, Vol. 6No9, Sept1983p. 820, under the title "​Rembrandt Aces". Chris Kenner expanded the use of the Ace-production ​idea to produce four royal flushes in a "​Rollover Aces" variant effect ("​Paint by the Numbers"​ in //​[[http://​​display/​14394/​Out+of+Control+Totally+Out+of+Control/​143|Out of Control]]//1992p. 140). Different handling of the Kenner trick were published by Doug Conn in his //Tricks of My Trade//, authored by Paul Cummins, 1999, "Flush Brush",​ p. 99; and in //MAGIC//, Vol. 21, No. 12, August 2013, p. 58.+Brushing ​telescoped ​deck against ​hand to produce a card in a paintbrush-like action, is credited ​to Nate Leipzig ​in //Card College ​Vol. 3//, 1998p695Unfortunatelyit seems as though Leipzig never published ​the idea himself, so we only have hearsay ​to go on that the idea isindeed, his.
-A marketed trick capitalizing on the principle, "Card Artistry", ​was released ​in 2011 by Justin FlomThis uses specially printed cards to produce a "grid" ​version ​of the Mona Lisa holding a selected card, or a "brain scan" ​(an x-ray of a head) with selection ​in brain.+The modern tabled variantin which the telescoped deck is brushed over the rubber side of a close-up mat to leave behind single cards was published by Roger Curzon as "Wipe Out the Aces" ​in //​Spell-Binder//​Vol. 1 No. 11, Mar. 1982, p. 199. Douglas A. Wicks later published the same idea in //​Apocalypse//,​ Vol6 No. 9, Sept. 1983, p. 820, under the title "Rembrandt Aces." ​Chris Kenner expanded the use of the Ace-production idea to produce four royal flushes in a "Rollover Aces" ​variant effect called "Paint by Numbers"​ in //​[[http://​​display/​14394/​Out+of+Control+Totally+Out+of+Control/​143|Out of Control]]//,​ 1992, p. 140. Doug Conn has published several handlings of Kenner'​s trick, including ​in //Tricks of My Trade//, 1999, p. 99; in //​Connjuring//,​ 2004, p. 5; and in //MAGIC//, Vol. 21 No. 12, Aug. 2013, p. 58.
-See also [[cards:​leipzig_paintbrush_production|Leipzig'​s ​Paintbrush Production]].+A marketed trick capitalizing on the principle, "Card Artistry,"​ 2011, was released by Justin Flom. This uses Barry Price'​s idea (uncredited) of using specially printed ​cards to produce a "​grid"​ version of the Mona Lisa holding a selected card, or a "brain scan" (an x-ray of a head) with the selection in the brain. 
 +===== Further notes about the oral history of Leipzig'​s ​paternity ===== 
 +Michael Weber was playing around with Paul Le Paul's "The Gymnastic Aces" from //The Card Magic of Paul Le Paul//, 1949, p. 207, when he discovered the idea of "​painting"​ a card from the telescoped deck. He showed the idea to Dai Vernon, who informed him that Nate Leipzig used to use the same production. Michael continued to show the move around, including to Doug Wicks. Wicks credited Michael Weber for the inspiration in the aforementioned //​Apocalypse//​ contribution. Chris Kenner was then directly inspired by the Wicks item to create "Paint by Numbers."​ These men were completely unaware that on the other side of the pond Roger Curzon had developed the same idea and made it into print a year earlier.
