The Work

 Any type of ceiling... popcorn, acoustic, vaulted, beamed?


What kind of clean up is involved?

 None.  And we use our exclusive, water-based paint.  No lacquers, no turpentines or thinners.

Can I do the work in the daytime as well as night?


Is it painted on somehow?

Yes.  Custom painted, signed and dated... by YOU.

Can you tell me how?

Yes, of course, when your StarBiz package arrives.

Can it be painted over?

Yes.  But never will be.

Is it messy?

No.  We don't get gallons of paint and a roller and paint the ceiling black.  When it's dark... Your ceiling appears black.  All you'll do is install (paint) the tiny stars with our equipment, methods and techniques.  Most of us don't even use drop-cloths for most of the job.  You'll have thousands of stars, constellations, etc. in about an hour.

Is it easy to do?  I'm not an artist.

Very easy.  There is no drawing involved.

Learning curve?

Your easy to understand manual and DVD video both explain the equipment, tools, techniques, methods and secret tricks.  Full confidence after three practice ceilings.  One or two ceilings is not enough.  The magic number is three.  And remember... the paint won't be seen during the day.  It's virtually invisible as it blends right in with an average white ceiling and walls.

Is it physical work?

I don't know if you CAN do this.  You'll have to be able to do these kinds of actions... 

   a.) draw a happy face
   b.) climb a stepladder
   c.) comb your hair 

If you can do these exact things... you'll have fun creating cosmic 3-D ceilings.

Is the Work redeeming?


Will I be taught everything, including all the themes?

Everything will be taught. The Battle in Space Fantasy, Angels & Fairies requires a set of large stencils available in the Pro Pkg.

What is "The Art of STARSCAPES®" -- the Customers' Owners Manual?

This informative booklet answers their questions about STARSCAPES® , shows them common constellations, informs your customers about the mythological stories behind the constellation creatures and  folks they'll find in their room, and basic astronomy lessons, too!

Is the painting permanent, or will it dim away with time?

It's been on Mr. Petrashek's ceiling for over 20 years with NO diminished effect.

Do you have a site in my area where I can see a STARSCAPES® finished product or can I get a sample of the product with directions? 

Other than in Arizona, we don't have any other showroom around the world and we do not keep a log of everyone around the world who has STARSCAPES®.  Also, it is not the job of the STARSCAPES® Artist-Illusionist to field calls from other prospective entrepreneurs like you, to answer your questions and invite you into their home to show you their bedroom ceiling.  Their job is their own business.  Yours will be too.  Our job is the marketing of this program.  You are hereby invited and welcome to visit the showroom in Arizona. 

Also you might like to purchase the Introductory Package which contains the Amazing STARSCAPES® Poster for only $39.95.  Then you'll what STARSCAPES® looks like in your own home.  Click here .

What happens with the ceiling lamp or fan? 

We don't remove them.  When the room is dark, the lamp will not be noticed or in the way of the stars.  Same with ceiling fans.  They are not an obstacle.  When the fan is on... It feels like a breeze coming down from the sky.

How does it look after the job is finished?

It looks like your ceiling has been removed and you are up in the mountains, away from the city lights, under the most beautiful and glorious starry sky imaginable.

Does it get removed, and therefore the need for a lot of ceiling fixing and new wiring, or what?

It can be painted over, but probably never will be.

When does it start glowing and creating the wonderful effects?

The glowing begins as soon as the lights are turned off, and it looks even better after a couple of minutes when your own eyes have adjusted to the dark.

How dark should the room be?  Does the effect disappear if I open the door to another room that has the lights on?  What if I have a small night-light?

The darker the room... the better the illusion is.  A small bit of light infiltration will be fine though.  If light comes through the window, simply add a pull-down window shade to it.  Just like getting away from the city lights... You'll see more stars.

How do I know that it really works? I mean, when you see so many money-taking so-called success stories which require a "minimum start-up sum", you become (at least) a little suspicious about getting involved into something.

We created the Amazing STARSCAPES® Introductory Package & 3-D Demonstration Poster for just that reason.  So you could see what it looks like in your own home.  Other than that... hop on a plane and visit the showroom.  We get visitors every week.  Or... I guess you'll have to trust us.

What tools do I need?

The only tool you'll need to supply is a step-ladder.  Everything else is included for you.

I live in Bucharest, Romania. How can I get what I need from you here?

Easy.  We've already shipped out to 160 countries.  We'll have no problem shipping to you anywhere in the world.  We use DHL courier express for most shipments.  This way both of us can track the shipment from door step to door step.

What do I have to order from you later on?

Product Re-orders (our exclusive Creation Painttm) are figured at $2 to $4 per room.  Example:  Order enough for 100 various sized rooms... $100 to $200.  However, we have no minimum order requirements... $20 orders are fine.

How long will it take to get my order, once I place it with you on your secure server here on the net?

We'll send it to you the very next day.

How long does the paint glow?

Our Super-3 Creation Paint glows for up to an hour and is brightest in the first 15 minutes.  It slowly fades as the stargazer falls asleep.  Great for younger childrens' rooms.  Makes their little eyes slam shut so they can get some sleep.  Adults like that benefit.  Our Super-10 Creation PaintTM glows all night and is brightest in the first couple of hours.  It glows throughout the night.  We create our own paint and it is formulated specifically for our customers, and will last for many, many years.  You can rest assured that not only will your customers be getting the very best product for their money; they'll also be getting the very best talent... YOU.

The Company

Do you supply leads?

No.  But if an individual or hotel from your area wants the Work done, we may send him your way if you are a licensee.

Will you be around for awhile?

In our 22nd year (2012) building a strong base with customers in over 160 countries!

 Are the testimonials real, and what about the license?

Real letters from Real people involved with the STARSCAPES® StarBiz.  And STARSCAPES® is our registered trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.  If you become a licensee, your customers will appreciate the quality that goes along with a world renowned name.  The license gives you the right to use the protected trademark name of STARSCAPES®.  And the license fee is NOT $1,000 a year... It's always been a ridiculously affordable $29.95 a month and can be paid yearly if so desired.  You'll get important benefits with that license also.  Applying for your license is an option for you.  Not needed if you're a hobbyist, but if you're wanting to be a professional... It makes sense.  Details of further benefits, and virtual territory, are coming to you in your StarBiz package.

How about customer service or schmoozing with other Artists?

Our full-time customer service team will be glad to help you.  SHORT phone calls and SHORT emails are the best.  Sometimes,  Mr. Petrashek answers the phones too.  Once you're "on board".  You'll be subscribed to our customer newsletter and later... Our on-line, member's only, group email conversation, and our STARSCAPES® weekly web-chats with other licensed  STARSCAPES® Artist-Illusionists.
What is F/X?
Originating with action filled Hollywood movies... That's short for SPECIAL EFFECTS.

Is Mr. Petrashek nice to animals?

He loves them all.
