The steps taken to paint a mural

The steps taken to paint a mural

Stage One – Consultation

  • A consultation meeting with the client, ideas are discussed with the artist about the artwork style they are looking to incorporate within their business or home.
  • During the consultation we take photos and measurements of the surface areas that are looking to be painted.
  • A detailed quote is supplied to the client that outlines all costs involved for the mural along with the terms and conditions.
  • The design fee is to be paid, before commencing to stage two.
  • The client will only pay for the design and not commit to the total cost of the project until they approve the design.

Stage Two – Concept development

  • Construction of ideas and themes for artwork.
  • Design begins. (We do our best to complete this in 7-10 working days but this will vary depending on the amount of other projects also in progress)
  • The design is mocked up over the image that was taken of the surface to be painted.
  • On approval of the design we then take payment of 50% of the remaining quoted price (design fee is deducted from quote) and source the materials.
  • A date and time for the installation of the artwork is arranged that is suitable for both parties. We understand that certain businesses cannot stop their operations, so we do offer a weekend and after hour’s service.
  • For large scale murals we also arrange for scaffolding or an elevated platform to be dropped off at the site for the duration of the project.

Stage Three – Mural Installation

  • We arrive on site and prepare the area and ensure no other surfaces are going to be damaged and that the area is free of any safety hazards.
  • Then we start installing the mural on the surface.
  • When we finish the artwork we tidy up the area, cleaning up any mess that we make. Leaving the workplace in the same condition as when we arrived.
  • Confirmation with client is made that artworks are as per the design and they are happy with the final result.
  • Final payment is to be made on the day of completion of the artwork. We accept VISA, Mastercard and American Express.
