How much should I sell my clay sculptures for?

I make polymer clay sculptures, and I'm not really sure how much to sell them for. I'm not trying to make big money from them, sculpting is my hobby, not my job. I've sold a couple of them, ranging in price from $10 to $30. I mostly make little 2-4 inch dragons that take about 3 hours to make. Honestly, I want to know what people think is a fair price. What would you be willing to pay for a handmade dragon sculpture? Here are some examples of what they look like:http://bytoothandclaw.deviantart.com/gallery/#/art... and http://bytoothandclaw.deviantart.com/art/Iron-Man-...

    Figuring your time at $10 an hour and the cost of materials, you're breaking even if you sell them for $40 each -- probably more than most people would pay. I understand that you're not trying to get rich, but you don't want to work your proverbial fingers to the bone, while losing money, either. IMO, you need to either find a way to enhance their value, or find a way to make them quicker so you can sell them for about $20 -- IMO, what people might pay for a cute frivolity.

    How might you enhance their value? Perhaps by personalizing them with the customer's name or by some kind of fancy packaging. Or can they be cast in multiples?

    Or how about opening an Etsy shop?
