Prices are currently under revision due to planning for BrickMagic 2012. For a price quote in the meantime, please feel free to drop contact us.
What gets factored into the amount?
- The plastic bricks. I only use LEGO, which is the best quality plastic toy brick money can buy. I use the standard-size bricks, (as opposed to plates which are a third the height), mainly because there is a wider variety of colors available with this type of piece.
- The glue. Something’s got to keep the whole thing together.
- The back-board. The portrait is mounted securely to a solid piece of wood to give greater stability to the whole thing.
- Hanging clips. Attached securely to the back of the wood. To help you hang it on your wall.
What can I get for free?
- An estimate. Contact me and I’ll be glad to mock up a few different designs for you to get an idea of how your picture will look in plastic brick.
It costs what?!
- Some people balk at the prices I’ve quoted. “That’s expensive.” I guess you’d have to be the judge of that. What would you pay for a real painting? How about a print of a real painting? I’ve walked into the Thomas Kinkade store at the mall and said, “that’s expensive.” But with one of my portraits you get a hand-made piece of work made by me. Priceless…:)
- Okay, joking aside, on the other hand, I am more than willing to work within your budget. We can looks at ways to knock a few cents off per brick based on a number of items, such as the number of colors used, the size of the portrait, your willingness to wait a couple extra weeks so I can get a bulk order of bricks in, etc.
Contact Chris to start the process. Remember … an estimate is free. 🙂
