That's actually really cool. Take in mind shipping too though!! Personally, as a shopper when it comes to online, I prefer something at a reasonable price, if the shipping isn't horrific :lol: if you stated, where you ship for instance, it would lower the cost of shipping. If you did like funky caves and such with marbles, that would be cool to!!
As for how much I'd pay? Not sure. I haven't seen this before, except with hot glue and that collapses.
Thanks so much for the compliment! I thought of selling it on Etsy, but I think I'd find more interest here. It's nice and sturdy. As for shipping, I have no idea... I live in SoCal, if that gives you any indication. I wouldn't imagine it would be bad.
Truthfully as an artist, I know you should never ask top dollar right away - but never start out cheaper than dirt. Do it by size - small = 2.00 (don't pick my numbers lol I'm just throwing random numbers to show my point!) medium = 5.00 and large = 8.00 or something along those lines.
well, if stores can rip us off for expensive tank decor that isn't great for fish, I think you should be able to sell smaller ones for at LEAST $5 and larger up to $15. Take into account how much you spend for the glue, the marbles, and how much time it takes you. Plan for about a $1 or 2 profit for each hour or half hour, and add a $1 to the amount you spent for supplies. So say you spend $3 on a pack of 30 marbles, and use 20 in a design. Each marble is worth .10 cents, so that means $2 in expense for the marbles. say the glue is $4 for a tube, and use use a 1/4 of it. Thats another $1 expense for the supplies. It costs, therefore, $3 to make a design that contains 20 marbles. Say it takes you an hour to make it, not including drying time, so thats about $1. In order to make a profit, add another dollar.
So, $5 for a 20 marble design
. . .Sorry . . . I had too much fun with that . . .
Unfortunately Frost, things cost me more than that to make just my little first design. D: Also marble designs don't stay together well when they're too large, they get flimsy. I think I'd have to make only smalls and mediums, but I might experiment with making thicker designs (maybe a castle?) that might stay up. Trial and error, anyway.
