Re: Rattle Snake tanning..
I 100% respectfully disagree with the other advice you were given and feel you are being led into a "trap" to try and justify high prices.
Check all your local pricing, then compare your work to theirs and set your price. Being that this is your first, you obviously chose to expand your talents and this customer shouldn't suffer with a high price because it may have taken you a lot longer than it should have. No knock on you, but we all know the first time trying a new craft will take a LOT longer than later attempts. Why should this customer pay for you to learn?
