What do I need to provide for the face painter to set up?
We need a 6'x6' space and adequate lighting. Depending on the length of the event, our painters will need a few restroom breaks and access to fresh water. We can provide our own tables and chairs. If needed, we can bring an EZup shelter to provide shade for your guests.
How do I remove the face paint?
Soap and water or cold cream will remove most make ups. Some colors can leave a residue, a baby wipe can help in these cases. If some gets on clothing, use some OxyClean or another pre-treater before washing as usual.
How much does a face painting party cost?
Our rates vary from $80-$120 per hour. Rates depend on the duration, event requirements, location, and artistic needs. There is a one hour minimum booking requirement.
Dang! I didn't plan enough time for all my guests to get painted, can you stay a little extra?
As long as we aren't booked for an event directly following yours, we are happy to stay, we can add time in half hour increments.
I'm a festival organizer, can you set up a booth and paint for us?
Absolutely, we LOVE festivals! Give us a call at 719.216.9868. Or Contact Us above and we will call you.
Can you paint/henna for my charity/church event for free?
The cost of professional face and body art might surprise you. The products, insurance, travel, tents,tables, chairs, and ongoing art education costs are significant. As such, we cannot do any event for free. We are happy to donate a portion of our proceeds to select causes. An alternate possibility is to have a local business sponsor an artist at your event.
You said you were available for my event, does that mean it's booked?
No, a booking requires a signed contract to secure an artist for your event.
