The process of commissioning a mural

The process of commissioning a mural for your home, restaurant, hotel or workspace, The process is simple.

You are probably wondering how to appoint a mural painter and the general commissioning process of murals.

Firstly, I recommend that you appoint Kate Lovegrove, naturally.

At the outset Kate will be able to give you an idea of the cost of commissioning her to paint a mural.

The cost is based on the anticipated size and concept for the mural you wish to have painted.

Selecting a style or image for your mural

During a consultation about your mural, you will be able to discuss the subject and design ideas for your mural.

Ideas can be suggested by the client or Kate will make suggestions as to what she feels might be ideal for the location.

Usually it is a collaborative process and it can be a lot of fun getting to the perfect design idea.

Preliminary sketches will then be made by Kate for further collaborative discussion.

Points To Consider When Commissioning A Mural

Kate can either paint your mural in situ or using a technique called marouflagea mural can be painted on canvas and fixed to the wall with glue.

The marouflage technique means that the murals can be moved should you so wish.

As wall murals are quite physically a work of art, it’s important to be aware that they can take some time to complete.

Plan in advance how long you have the space available for your mural painter to work.

Think about the image you have selected.

Intricate wall or ceiling murals may take quite a few weeks to complete.

Marouflage works well if the building where the mural is to be situated is under refurbishment and if there is no time for the process of mural painting to take place.

Kate and her team arrive with the painted canvas and install it on site in a matter of days.
