Frequently Asked Questions
Do you use special paint?
How long does it last?
Yes! We use paint that is specifically designed to go on your body. We use a variety of brands including Snazaroo, Paradise and Krylon. All of our face paints are non toxic, hypo allergenic and FDA approved. We only use water based face paint.
Until you wash, rub or sweat if off! Our face paint is very bright and fairly durable, it will stay until you physically remove it with soap and water.
How many kids can you face paint in one hour?
Around 15 children/adults per painter per hour, 30 children in the standard two hour booking. This is with our standard cheek designs or half masks (masks that cover just the eyes) full face designs take a bit more time.
Do you dress up?
No sorry! Usually we wear fun bright outfits, however if you are having a theme party we will always do our best to dress appropriately.
Can my baby have facepainting?
Our face paint is not rated safe for babies under the age of 1 year old and very small children rarely sit still enough to have a design completed.It is our policy to never paint on a childs face who is not willing. We are happy to try! And sometimes we can manage a cute little heart or a star for your little bundle but don't be surprised if they aren't into it.
