TheDucttapeBassist's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts

Duct tape artist and fan of many things.

I also have my art on Tumblr!

Updated Commission Info

Journal Entry: Tue May 8, 2018, 1:22 PM

Update to commission information: 

Money ONLY, no points! Sorry!
Paypal only

Please send me a note if you are interested, I will likely respond in less than a week, most likely within a day or so. Remember that duct tape colors are extremely limited so anything with many colors or lots of shading may not be possible. I have a color chart available upon request. I will work with you to help make what you see in your head into reality, but please do not be angry if changes must be made. 
I also tend to make my artwork smaller, around the size of a piece of paper. Anything larger will cost extra.
*All commissions must have a reference photo/photos!*

Flat art commissions: 
  The prices will depend on what you want done. 

Simple art: $15-20

OC art will use above pricing
Aquamarine (duct tape) by TheDucttapeBassist Ace (duct tape) by TheDucttapeBassist

Shipping is not included in above prices. Shipping cost will depend on size of final piece and location being shipped to.

If the piece is 12 1/2 inches by 9 1/2 inches or LESS and shipped within the USA shipping will be around $7-$9.50 flat rate. Any other size/location will be calculated after the piece is done.

Specalty tapes may cost extra if a large amount is used
These include:
-Rare or discontinued colors/patterns
-Mirror tapes

Metallic tapes are no longer on the specialty list! They can be used like any other regular color, just ask!

If you want more info on the how/why of my pricing you can read this entry here  How my duct tape art is pricedHow my art is priced
If this is your first time buying or commissioning a piece of duct tape art, you may be asking why the prices are the way that they are. Many people have asked why my prices are so high, but it's actually the other way around. My prices compared to others are much lower than average.
What I did for pricing was take the price it should be marked at, and halved it.
For example, this piece:

It took 12 hours to make, and at average minimum wage (about $8) should cost $96, and that is without supplies costs.
However, I'm selling it for $45.
Now that is a pretty big difference!
More information on pricing
Duct tape art is very different from other art forms. Unlike digital and traditional art that can be replicated and sold as prints, that can't be done with duct tape art, as it would no longer be made of duct tape! It's the same as painting an artwork and selling the original, one-of-a-kind piece.
