Paint by number kits were invented, developed and marketed in 1950 by Max S. Klein, an engineer and owner of the Palmer Paint Company of Detroit, Michigan and Dan Robbins, a commercial artist. The kit initially sold over 12 million copies. Today there are various designs that can create a love for painting for any child. The kit basically contains a pre printed board or canvas, paint and brush. The pre printed design is basically divided into various areas or zones by numbers. The paint pots are numbered to correspond with every numbered zone in the pre printed design. All the child has to do is paint according to the numbers. This in return will create a masterpiece that he or she can call her own and be very proud of.
