Chalk Art FAQs
What if it rains?
It depends how heavy the rain is – if it’s a light rain the artist will take a break and resume work when the rain stops. Ideally our clients provide a marquee to cover the artwork.
How much does it cost?
Each project is customised to fulfil your objectives. Budget is determined by size and detail which translates to time. Provide us with as much information as you can and we’ll let you know. Prices start at $1,500 and go up to tens of thousands of dollars depending on your requirements.
How long does it take?
It all depends on the detail of the artwork and what size you want it to be. 6 hours is the minimum time for a 3D artwork to be produced. Complex artworks can take many days to produce.
Do pavement artists have to work directly on the ground?
Artists can work on other surfaces too, e.g. canvas, adhesive vinyl and boards, we’ve even worked on motor cars! We also work with materials other than chalk pastels, especially when our clients want the work to be permanent.
Do I need approval for artists to produce art in public?
Yes. Speak to your local council or governing body for approval. We can assist in providing information you need to gain approval.
How long will pavement art last?
The question really is: how long do you want it to last? Pavement art can last a day, weeks or months depending on how we treat the surface and finished artwork. We can produce permanent artworks on the pavement too.
How is the chalk cleaned off the ground?
High pressure hoses usually do the trick. We recommend that a professional cleaner be brought in after the event to clean the site.
