Frequently Asked Questions
Cost will depend on a number of variables, the amount of detail and mural design; the more complicated the longer it takes to paint, and that dictates the price. Painting people and animals is especially difficult and will also lead to an increase in price. It can also depend on the wall itself, its condition and material, some surfaces, especially textured surfaces, will naturally take twice the amount of paint and twice the amount of time. The height of the wall, range of surface and whether or not a mechanical lift will be needed are all factors that affect the cost.
The speed depends on the same factors as the price of the mural. Location of the wall, the size of the hand painted mural, the amount of details, how complicated it is, the height of the wall, work environments.
