Face painting at children's parties is very popular!  You may also add glitter tattoos to the booking. Whether it is a small home party for a few very close friends or a big 2-3 hour party at large venue, for up to 35- 40 children, I can cater accordingly.

Regular 2 hour party is the most common type of booking for Children's birthdays. 

You can expect full 1, 2 or 3 hours of painting. Your face painter arrives with enough time to set up and start at the time you book. The birthday child has the advantage of getting their face painted first and even get a bit extra. Maybe even an arm painting if time allows:) 

I use high quality, water-based paints that are EU and FDA compliant with cosmetic regulations. All my paints and glitter are cosmetic products, to ensure the safest application and experience and are suitable on skin for children over the age of 3.  If you have any concerns about sensitive skin and possible allergic reactions, please discuss this with me before you get painted. I offer patch tests and advice. 

Please see my FAQ for any questions, such as how to manage queues etc.

When you make an enquiry, include all the details such as date, time and location and how many children may be attending. I am aware that not all children will want their face painted, but we always take that into consideration at any booking.  At parties with enough time left and when all children are done, I always welcome children having their arms painted as well...or adults often join in too:)

Please note that 1hour parties are only available for maximum of 12-15 children and within 5-10miles travel.


Perfect addition to private festivals, 30th, 40th, 50th or 60th birthday celebrations, hen dos, weddings, Halloween parties..... 

Designs are always a bit different, matching with each person, according to their wish or with their dress or outfit.  It can be more intricate and each design take a bit longer than regular children's designs, depending on what is required or how much time we have, I can create beautiful flower pieces , chest painting, decorate shoulders, arms or back to compliment the dress you might be wearing! Face painting for adults is often combined with adding Festival glitter bar to the booking.


Face Art by Petra offers an option for personalised, themed painting for business launches, grand openings, sport events, staff parties, fun days and more!

Glitter bar and Glitter tattoos are great addition to the bookings. As well as face painting my usual design, I am able to provide personalised stencil (must book min 2 months in advance).  I can create  designs with your logo for your event  and display on the day.
