Paint by numbers refers to kits having a board on which gray lines indicate areas to paint, and each area has a number and a matching numbered paint to use. The 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.
