ElgaKoster Posted January 30, 2016 Share Posted January 30, 2016 Somebody posted this link on the petitpointer group and I would like to hear what you all think, pricing for me is always very difficult. About the only thing that I really keep a time track on is my petitpoint and only if I have to finish it by a certain time, to give an example according to this guy's base rate of $50 an hour. At the moment I am stitching a piece on 55 count gauze, finished size is 2 3/16" by 1 5/8", my estimated hours on this is 54 hours which includes the time I spend on charting the design and I am being conservative here with the hours....so 54 hours at $50 an hour is $2700...and this petitpoint is part of a table I am making with probably another 30-40 hours of work in it. And since this guy mentioned skill...I just wonder...how much are collectors out there willing to pay for really good pieces of the top artists in our field? The artists who do this full time who probably don't include the many hours of research and overcoming design issues in the final price, that is dependend on this income for their livelyhood to pay the daily bills...so how do miniature artists get to working out prices that is worth the effort put in and a price that a buyer is willing to pay?https://makesomething.tv/how-price-your-work-simple-technique Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
