The museum, especially for Modern Art in the city of New York, collected some designs from Max Klein on paint by number. It was then placed in the architecture department as donated by Jacquelyn Schiffman.
In the year 2011 Palmer Paint Products produced a new set of paint by numbers and launched it. The new set was a tribute to the survivals of the twin tower accident. In this technique of painting by numbers, a complete picture is partitioned into shapes. Each division is provided a particular number depending on the color approach. Anybody who wants to paint using this technique just needs to colors each shape one by one and when all the shapes are filled automatically the painting will be complete. Though there were people who claimed that the idea of paint by numbers was ridiculous. Still, people accepted this idea that there can be wonders hanging without any proper training or any talent. The painting of landscapes and more by paint by numbers had entered the country’s houses and captured a place in the wall as well as in their hearts.
Paint by numbers includes small pots of colors as many paints one needs, a brush generally of small size, and an outline of a picture printed. The paint pots have unique numbers so does the shapes. Each shape has one of those unique number printed on it. The paint number mentioned on a shape is filled with that particular number to complete the full picture. Now when starting to apply color one should start painting the lightest part first followed by the darker shade and at last the darkest or vice versa. The portion which has a mixed color should be touched at the end. Following this method will ensure a painter grasps more idea about tone and shades of colors.
