How much do you charge?
My project minimum is $900. Mural pricing is based largely on size, so it's helpful to know the dimensions of the wall(s). Complexity of the design and material (paint, chalk, etc) are also factors in the cost. Fill out the form on the right and we can talk specifics!
How long will it take?
Time is dependent on a variety of factors, including size, medium, and design. It can take anywhere from a week to several months. My calendar fills up fast, so contact me as soon as possible!
Do you spray the chalk with something to make it permanent?
When working in chalk pastel (brightly colored chalk), I don't use a fixing spray because it dulls the color. Chalk pastel is a good option for brightly colored designs on areas that are out of reach (above a counter or behind a bar, for example).
I also work with a more permanent material that resembles the look of chalk, but will not wipe off or smudge when touched. It is also dust-free. This material is currently only available in white; however, the results are quite striking. I highly recommend this material for permanent "chalk-look" murals.
What type of paint can I use to make a chalkboard wall?
"Chalkboard paint" is really just matte interior paint, so you can potentially get it in any brand or color of your choosing. Rust-Oleum is the most commonly available chalkboard paint; you can get it at most home-improvement stores. For a more earth-friendly option, you can order ECOS chalkboard paint online. The paint will need at least 36 hours to dry completely before it can be drawn on, so make sure to allow enough time!
My business needs an artistic touch, but I have no idea what I want.
That's okay! Many people I work with aren't sure where to start when it comes to describing what they're looking for. I will sit down with you to find out exactly what you have in mind (even if you don't know it yet).
