Miniature Painting

From the table to your mantle, my paint’s got you covered.

Generally, my painting rate is $25 an hour, but batch painting is a different beast and those rates vary. I expect half up front for two reasons

  1.  So that I actually get paid. I’ve had a few people skip out on the payment process.
  2. So that I’m compensated for at least some of my time should you not be satisfied with the end result.

In the unlikely event that you’re not happy with the end result, and are unwilling to compromise, I will waive the remainder of the commission fee but you will be blacklisted and I will refuse all future commission requests from you henceforth. It doesn’t pay to be cheap, folks.

Anyway, here’s a handy chart to help you gauge your budget.

Depending on quantity,
one to three days.
One week from the moment it reaches
the top of my queue.
As long as perfection takes. If you think it’s
perfect after I’ve only spent a day on it, then it’s
all yours.
