I would recommend NOT paying drastically less than this if you are expecting original work of a premium standard - you would be playing with fire.
"Playing with fire":
"Used primarily to advise someone against a course of action that may result in an unpleasing outcome either for themselves or others around them" (Urban Dictionary).
"Fig. to do something dangerous or risky. (Usually playing with fire.) Be careful with that knife! You are playing with fire! If you mess with Max, you are playing with ..." (Free Dictionary).
"You're playing with fire if you're involved in an activity that could be dangerous, or could lead to problems in the future. For example:
--You're really playing with fire if you have loaded guns in the house, especially if there are kids around.
--Suzie says that if someone with mental or emotional problems smokes marijuana, they're playing with fire. She says it can make these problems much worse" (The English Club).
And then there's the bed-wetting issue:
"Freud (1905/1968) noted that it was common to warn children that playing with fire would lead to them wet the bed" (Heath, Hardesty & Goldfine, 1984, p. 274).
There's also Wikipedia's entry for Japanese superstitions:
"If you play with fire, you will wet your bed. (It makes children become aware of the danger of fire."
So remember kids, you get what you pay for and don't play with fire.
