To paint amazing star ceilings, you are going to, at a minimum, need four colors of glow-in-the-dark paint, 2-3 brushes, acrylic medium, a nail brush, painter’s tape, drop clothes, and backlights.

This is a very difficult question to answer. For established artists who have made a name for themselves, it is not uncommon to charge upwards of $50 a square foot, or even higher. You may also find yourself being flown in to create designs in nightclubs, high-end homes, and other projects. When you are just starting out though, a more realistic rate is around $5-10 a sq ft. Thus, you for a 10×10 bedroom you could reasonably expect to charge $500-$1,000.
Where Do I Begin?
