HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Quote is based on information, such as miles/time to travel, type of event, daytime or late nights, number of people attending your event/participants, special requests, number of hours booked..
Location is the most important to include in your enquiry.
Children's 2hr birthday parties, that can accommodate up to 30-35 children usually start at £100.
DO YOU HAVE A PUBLIC LIABILITY INSUARANCE?
Yes! I hold full public liability insurance, that is always up to date. You can find the certificate on this website.
DO YOU HAVE A DBS?
No. Face painters legally do not require DBS check. We should insist that we are not left alone with children, as we are not responsible in taking care of them or responsible for their actions etc... We require that parents, carers or guardians are supervising their child at all times.
DO YOU NEED US TO PROVIDE ANYTHING?
I supply and bring all my own equipment, including tables and directors chair. All you need to do on the day, is to decide where is the best place to let us set up. Most important is, that the area for set up is not high traffic area (too close to an entrance door or where people would frequently enter our working space etc. ) and where we can communicate easily with guests, if possible ( not too close to speakers or sound systems). We also like to work in well lit area, but if you have limited lighting or space, please discuss this with us at the time of booking, so we can make suitable arrangements and try to come up with the best solution.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SET UP?
It takes approx. 10-15 mins to set up face painting, however, I usually aim to arrive min.15 - 30 minutes before I am expected to start. For outdoor events or multi package deals such as adding festival glitter and glitter tattoos, set up time might be approx. 30minutes -1hr.
HOW LONG DOES FACE PAINT LAST AND HOW DO YOU REMOVE IT?
Face paint lasts all day if kept dry. To remove face paint, wash it off with soapy water, alternatively you may use make-up remover. Wet wipes are not recommended due to some wipes containing ingredients, that can react with face paint and cause irritation.
Glitter tattoos are applied using body glue and it last anywhere between 1 day to 7 days, depending how it is applied and looked after. It and can be removed with baby oil or rubbing alcohol.
Chunky glitter from our Glitter bar is applied using glitter gel, which once dries, it lasts all day. To remove, simply wipe if off with wet flannel. It comes off very easily.
HOW MANY CAN YOU PAINT IN 1 HOUR? HOW LONG SHOULD WE BOOK?
Professional face painters are very skilled and experienced at speed painting. It means, that we are able to paint regular designs quickly and not at the cost of quality. In 1 hour, I am able to paint 15, sometimes up to even 20 when I am tackling long queues ( some designs may be simplified) , however it always depends on few other things ( Can they sit still? Are they indecisive about what they want painted by the time it is their turn? Do they want something different to what there is to offer?.... ) There can be lot of reasons that can make the time per each child different. When booking a face painting, my guide is 12-15 per every hour and 1 artist.
1 hour booking is only available for no more than 12 -15 children attending the party.
I also believe, that when you are booking my services, you appreciate art and quality of my designs. I can only be more creative and produce better face art, when I get enough time to do so. Rushing through quantities of children is not enjoyable for them so much either.
At events or parties with higher number of people, I can recommend to consider booking 2 artists, which I can arrange. Ask me for details.
