It all started in Detroit in 1949 when Dan Robbins, an aspiring artist, met entrepreneur Max Klein. Together, they decided something called Craft Master Paint-By-Numbers might be a good business. The rest is history. Millions of Americans painted by the numbers, making it the “Fad of the Fifties.” Dan Robbins, original artist and creator of Craft Master paint-by-number sets dating back to the early 1950s, will take you back to the beginning of the paint-by-number business.
