What is the Process?
After the initial contact, Leigh will meet with you in your subject space to talk about your ideas, inspiration, budget, timeline, and the overall look you want to create. Then from here, we determine size, color, design and/or layout, possibly making some quick on-site sketches.
Mural design will require a custom sketch or a collection of images to be approved by the client prior to start date. Canvas art will be created in the WM studio after a color palette approval. There is no charge for the initial consultation and preliminary sketches.
Once the design and quoted price are agreed upon, a deposit will be requested for additional supplies and a start date will be scheduled, if it has not been already.
How Does Scheduling Work?
Leigh will discuss your plans and give you a tentative start date at the initial consultation to block off time in her calendar. Once the design has been approved and a deposit made, your start date will be set. Leigh prides herself on accurately estimating her labor and finishing projects on time and within budget.
How Long Does a Mural Take?
Depending on the scope of the project, most basic murals take between two to four days to complete, starting on a Monday or Tuesday, ending by Thursday. Of course, larger projects require more days, which will be scheduled during normal business hours, unless otherwise necessary.
Will WM Require a Deposit?
We will collect a deposit either at the initial consultation or after the first rendering/revision is seen. The first sketch is free, but any additional renderings will require the project’s 50% deposit.
What is the Minimum Cost for a Mural or Faux Finish?
While Leigh and her artists can usually find a way to create most anything within a client’s budget, we do have a $500 minimum for any project.
Does WM Take Credit Card?
Yes, we just ask that clients who prefer to use credit split the transaction fee of 3% (pay extra 1.5%)
Is the Watson Murals team insured?
Absolutely! We have the coverage necessary for our trade to work safely on the smallest residence to the largest commercial site. Will provide sufficient documentation upon request.
Are All of the Watson Murals Past Work on This Website?
Not in the least. We have an extensive portfolio that Leigh will happily share with you if you do not see anything inspiring on the site. Just let us know what you have in mind and chances are we have created it! If not, even better – we love originality.
