Before any Kids Art Mural can begin, the wall to be painted should be smooth, clean and free from any grease or grime. This preparation work is to be carried out by the client, however, if it is more convenient then this work can be undertaken by Kids Art Murals for an additional fee. Two coats of white vinyl matt emulsion should be applied. This depends on the final background colour that will be applied to the mural. Clients are requested to prepare the walls by cleaning with sugar soap at least 48 hours before painting is due to commence. A cleaned and prepared wall will create a better surface for the mural paints to adhere to and will avoid any future peeling or flaking. If requested, an acrylic varnish may be applied. For interior mural work this is normally not necessary unless it is for a high usage item such as a door, toy box or other painted furniture. A small fee would be charged for this additional coating.
A client wishing to cancel a Kids Art murals may do so by giving notice either verbally, or in writing to Kids Art murals within 5 days of the agreed start date of the commission. The initial set up fee, may not be refunded which is used to part purchase artists materials, wall boards, or any other items pertaining to the commission.
9. Cancellation during mural work
If the cancellation of a mural/wall board or artwork occurs whilst in progress and is either being painted at the client’s property or off site as a wall board, vinyl pvc foamex or other material, then payment for the work undertaken to that point, will be calculated against the agreed commission fee. The payment of this amount will be required upon presentation of an invoice for the incomplete work/s and no refund of the set up fee will be given for partly used materials or other items.
