    Christopher is a ceramist in Costa Rica and wants to export a shipment of ceramic ware to the U.S. that is appraised at $15,000. The clay used in the production of the shipment is of Costa Rican origin and is valued at $700. The base coat paint applied to the ceramic ware is of Puerto Rican origin and is valued at $2,000. The colored paint used to decorate the ceramic ware is of English origin and is valued at $4,000. The glaze used to protect and make the ceramic ware dishwasher safe is of U.S. origin and is valued at $3,000. The direct costs of processing in Costa Rica is $1,050.
