Mosaic fees

mariak58April 16, 2009

Hi, I'm new on this forum. After nearly 6 years away from mosaics I've come back and am loving it more this time around. I've been given a 'commission' of 2 panels of 1800mm x 900mm to do. My problem is that I have no idea how much to charge per panel. I was hoping someone could tell me if I should charge by the square foot or by the hour and what is a reasonable fee to ask for. I'm not sure if I'm alowd to ask this question here but wasn't sure where else to go. Thanks.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I think we all have a problem when it comes to pricing. I think it has everything to do w/your area. Some artists charge by the sq. ft, and others - I dunno know. IMO the cost of your materials times two or two/half, and if your area is a good market, times three. Don't forget to send us a picture of your WIP. Glad you're back into mosaics. It is such a satisfying hobby.
