      It's always a good idea ask what the budget is for your part of the
      project (one time use of marbled design). At times, I've found
      that the client's budget is higher than what I would charge. Other
      times, the budget is too low to even consider doing it. It helps
      tremendously to have this information. Over the past twenty
      years, I've found that there really isn't a set price, even though
      we'd like there to be (a high) one. If this is something you really
      want to do regardless of the price, then go for it! Experience in
      this type of work is worth the effort for the next one that comes
      along. As for copyright infringement, anyone can scan your
      image, tweak it a bit and say it isn't yours. Professional scruples
      are hard to come by these days! I've had a piece of my artwork
      with marbled enhancement used by the same client who
      commissioned it in the first place. Somehow they managed a
      brain freeze, never discussed it with me, and printed it again for
      another project. Someone who knows my work saw it, called me,
      and I received AMPLE compensation after negotiating a new
      contract for the reprint. Others have not been so lucky.
