FAQ’s

IS IT MESSY OR DIRTY –
Painting the Nightsky Ceiling does not involve any mess or getting dirty, as we use masking when and where it is needed. We leave the room as we found it, so the surprise for the recipient will be as perfect as possible therefore they will only become aware of the Nightsky Ceiling at nightfall and not from the mess left behind.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE THE ROOM –
There is no need to empty your room for us to paint the Nightsky Ceiling. However, you must ensure that every inch of the ceiling is reachable from a ladder.
HOW DOES THE PAINT ABSORB THE LIGHT? WHAT SIZE OF WINDOWS AND WHAT KIND OF LIGHT IS NEEDED TO CHARGE IT –
The Nightsky Ceiling absorbs the natural light that comes into the room, and therefore you need the appropriate size of windows. If there is not enough natural light, you can charge it with UV lamps, or you can use a UV light bulb or a spotlight. When not charged with natural light the ceiling glows for less time. Using UV light it charges faster but lasts a shorter time. If you light it using permanent UV lighting, there is no need for prior charging and you get a sparkling and more intense experience.
DO I NEED SOME SORT OF SPECIAL LIGHTING –
Not at all. In fact the Nightsky Ceiling is best experienced in total darkness. If you would like to see something else in the room besides the Nightsky Ceiling, for example, in an aroma-therapy room or a massage-room, we recommend a permanent UV light.
HOW IS IT DONE –
Using water-based paints our artists hand-paint the illusion of the starry night sky
WHY CAN’T THE CUSTOMER BE PRESENT WHILE THE CEILING IS BEING PAINTED –
Since the Nightsky Ceiling is made in different stages, and it can not be enjoyed fully in individual stages, we would like the customer to get the first impression based upon the completed ceiling rather than through the intervals. We love to see the expressions on our customers faces too.
IS IT HANDMADE –
Yes, it is. The Nightsky Ceiling is entirely made by hand.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COMPLETE THE NIGHTSKY CEILING –
Every room is a different size, sometimes they are upstairs sometimes down, it also depends on how much room we have to do the job and on customisation that you may be wanting so it is hard to put a time on teach project but we have been known to complete a job in 3 hours. We have never taken longer than a day to complete the project in an average sized room either.
CAN I ASK FOR A UNIQUE IMAGE –
Every Nightsky Ceiling is made according to the customers’ ideas so every Nightsky Ceiling is a unique and bespoke creation to our customers needs.
DOES THE CEILING NEED TO BE PAINTED BLACK –
No, it does not. The Nightsky Ceiling is painted over the original colour of the ceiling. It is invisible only on lighter backgrounds.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NIGHTSKY CEILING AND THE STICKERS AND OTHER PHOSPHORESCENT PAINTS AVAILABLE IN STORES –
First of all, the Nightsky ceiling glows ten times longer than any other technique and has a much more intense and sparkling light since it was especially developed for this purpose. Invisible in the daytime, the Nightsky Ceiling reproduces a lifelike three-dimensional view of the starry sky at night or in darkness that is absolutely unique to your wants and needs.
DOES IT HARM YOUR EYES IF YOU LOOK AT IT FOR A LONG TIME –
There is nothing dangerous or harmful in the Nightsky Ceiling for just like the stars of the night sky, the stars of the Nightsky Ceiling emit a low-power light and any extra light can ruin the experience.
