These were made to order for a condo in Florida last week. They were based on the style of one of the murals he'd sen on my website.
They are what I'd call- Classic mural designs. I have to admit they do look sharp as a set. He later added 3 more small murals to the order.
Its for his kitchen (BIG condo) the two larger over his stove and sink- and the 7 smaller set along the walls wrapping the kitchen.
The lasgest- turtle is 16"x18"
Twin palm trees: 12"x13"
and the little ones are 6"x6"
Would you believe it takes just as long to make a miniature mural as it does to make a full size one?
Each of the little ones too 5 hours - including carving the shells in 3D
The set you see here- 6 murals- took 45 hours to complete. He gave me just 3 days to complete them in... It was pure insanity!
pardon the pictures fish eye effect- they aren't actually misshapen at all!
Just a phenomenally creative and professional looking job especially under the time limits. You must work well under pressure. Your artistic skills and work attitude will no doubt put you in demand. Hold out for the big bucks because you do deliver the goods. I built my own home and did all the tile but nothing like this.
This was my first job under that much pressure and was actually surprised I was able to pull it off. I had to make 2 less than he first ordered to meet his first deadline- but he decided later that he was willing to have them a few days later- and added another the following week- Which made me question the urgency of the original deadline- but hey- it was a fun challenge anyway.
I think people assume no one does anything in a timely fashion anymore so figure put a rush on the order to assure to get it done fast.
Does anyone know how much you should add to the cost to make something
as a "rush" order?
