There can be a bit more work involved in doing custom work. Typically the process goes like this. When I am contacted to do work for a client, I will ask that photos of the piece be sent to me first and ask that some preliminary questions be answered before we meet about the project. We typically meet in my client’s home so I can get a good sense of their style and colors. We will choose colors and I will then produce samples for approval with chosen color(s) and technique and possibly alternatives. Once the sample is approved, the process of cleaning, repair and finishing is begun. Depending on the selected finished, times to complete projects vary due to dry times and cure time. Delivery or shipping is available for a fee.
