Posted on Friday, January 02, 2004 @ 4:00:30 PMGreetings!I am going to begin painting regular signs at my chiropractor's two offices in exchange for services that I have previously paid cash for. He is very accomodating and said to see how it goes and then we can establish our exchange so that it is fair to both of us.We have agreed on the designs and the sites. I plan to paint from the inside using tempera paint and I will take care of removal since I will be replacing the signs at that time.I am hoping to take photos of the work and use that to acquire other jobs. I'll get cards made as well.Thank you for this wonderful website. I am nervous but excited about this new venture. I look forward to learning as I go along.I would appreciate any feedback you have about using tempera inside with lettering and removing the paint when it's time to change the signage.I'll send pics when I'm done!Karen

Congradulations Karen!

 

I hope your venture leads to many happy hours of window painting. I started out painting on cars because my ex husband owned a paint and body shop.

Some of those cars were brand new and I would be so nervous that it would take me 1/2 hour to even touch it!! But once I started painting windows, I knew it was my passion (besides oil painting). When you know how to take something off and start again, it makes everything easier. I didn't know that if I started painting on a car that I could easily remove it and start over. Now I know!

 

If you have even one photo to show prospective clients, that's all it takes! Now after 25 years I make an average of $100 an hour and I have 2 employees. Do what you do best and it will pay off!

 

Happy Painting and I can't wait to see your pictures!

Tempra is a good choice if you are going to be continually removing it and adding new ones. Clean up is as simple as hot water with a little vinegar. Hope it all works out. Virginia
