Please give as much detail as possible. Custom art dolls can be as meaningful and personal as you'd care to make them. They're perfect as gifts to be treasured, or as personal keepsakes to display and pass down.
BAD SEED'S PRICING FORMULA
I am often asked how I come up with my prices for my dolls. Rather than just "come up" with a price, I use a pricing formula. And I use the same formula for each piece accordingly.
Every hour spent on a piece is documented. As is the list of materials, amount of each that was needed, and cost of everything that was used. Materials can vary. A typical list would include: Clay, copper tubing, glass eyes, mohair, various fabrics, fur and, leather. Embellishments such as feathers, beads, sequins, crystals, feathers, etc. Only the highest quality Materials are used in the creation of a Bad Seed doll.
Lastly would be my hourly rate. A doll takes aproximately 100 hours to make. That can vary depending on the complexity of each piece. My rate per hour is $9.00 ( Canadian minimum wage is currently $10.25).
Formula is as follows:
Materials + Hours@ $9.00/hour = Your doll's price
