Mural Painting and trompe l'oeil
Sometimes you want something more than standard wallpaper... Read More
I can create a design beautifully tailored to fit your chosen space, that will bring a smile to the faces of everyone who sees it. My children's murals are a real hit with kids and adults of all ages, and so are my themed rooms and trompe l'oeil. Work can be carried out on both interiors and exteriors including children's bedrooms, playroom or nursery, swimming pools and commercial premises, garden rooms and conservatories, outdoor walls and public places.
Commissioning a Mural - How the process works, and what you can expect.
Phase 1 - Initial Contact and Estimates
The process begins by discussing your ideas without obligation, either on the phone or by email, where we can discuss what you would like, and your budget, so I can then try and offer design ideas that work for you, and suit your budget.
Prices can obviously vary depending on what you may want, I charge by how long the work will take, and I offer estimates based on how long I think this will be. A rule of thumb is that for one average size wall should take about five days if it's not too detailed, and more complex designs take a bit longer. Please contact me for estimates or to be offered a fix price deal, also check the offers to see if you qualify for a substantial discount of up to 50%.
Phase 2 - Consultation & Sketches
For larger jobs or local work, a meeting is usually conducted at the site where you wish the mural to be painted. I will bring along any reference material that I feel relevant to the ideas we may have already discussed.
Consultations can also be done over the phone, or using Skype video calls. There is no obligation , it's just a chat at this stage. I make no charge for consultations but in some cases, especially if there is a significant distance involved, I would expect the client to bear the cost of my travel expenses (I'm Devon based). I can also offer small drawings to help you decide, and if you are happy with the proposed design, cost and work schedule, I will then pencil you in for a start date.
I usually produce sketches in advance for the proposed project, so you will get a good idea of how the final mural will look. As a safeguard I will require payment before I will release any full sized sketches. This is usually £40 per sketch and once received I will send the sketches, plus I will then work on them for free if any changes are wanted. The payment for these sketches will be deducted from the final bill, should the work go ahead.
Phase 3 - The work
When the day arrives I would drive to you in my motorhome, and stay in it for the duration of the work. I'm often given permission to park on the client's driveway and hook up to the mains electric, and this is the ideal situation in most cases. If this is not a viable option, I can stay at a nearby campsite. When I begin work I first lay down some protective plastic sheeting and dust sheets on the floor, I then draw by hand the design on the walls and then begin painting. I usually work from @ 9 to @ 5.30, with a half hour for lunch, and often work through the weekends. I am quiet and discreet, and respectful of your space while I am there working, and all of my clients have been happy with my working practice, and delighted with the finished result.
