Questions customers and parents ask…

Why hire a professional face painter?

To insure that your Face painter is using quality face paint and follows all safety precautions use only a professional face painter.

Do kids needed elaborate designs, can I limit them to simple designs and have more kids painted?

Full face art is best but I am also happy to limit the selection to my "quick" face designs to increase the number of faces I can paint.

Can I specify the type of designs offered?

Yes. You can limit the choices to any theme related face art options.

What if a child wants a specific character?

I am not just a face painter I am an artist! I can paint just about anything. If you have a special request, show me the image and I will do my best.

What parts of the body can be painted?

I can paint designs on the face, cheek, arm, ankle, shoulder, stomach or back, and even on bald heads!

How do you approach a child that is afraid?

I ask them to sit on their parent's or older sibling's lap. If a parent or sibling is not present, then I ask them to watch a friend or another child get painted.

How long will the designs stay on?

I use top quality paints. They are easily washed off with soap and water. Depending on skin type, some colors may linger on the skin (usually turquoise and green). If you want your face art to last, I suggest keeping it dry and not touching it, especially when sweating.

Pool party

Have me do glitter tattoos they are water proof and can last 3-5 days! Face painting will wash off, so have me to come at the end of the party, when the children are done swimming. How do I control who can be painted in an open space or public place? I recommend that you give tickets or wrist bands to those who are part of your group. Is it necessary for the kids to stand in long lines? I don't want your guests standing in line. I want them to have fun. To prevent lines you can provide a parent volunteer to act as helper. This increases the number of people I can pain and will make things go much faster. I will have a sign-up sheet at my table. The Parent Helper, will remind guests when it is time to be painted and help people decide what they want before they sit down with me. They will also make sure the next person is in line. How is face paint removed? Face paint can be removed with warm water and mild soap or facial wipes. Use your normal brand of soap & warm water. Does it stain skin or clothing? Depending on skin type, some colors may linger on the skin (usually turquoise and green). A wash with baby shampoo will help. I will be as careful as possible when painting, however, I accept no responsibility if face paint is transferred onto surfaces, inflatable's, clothing or carpets.

Client Responsibilities

Katie and her staff are here to entertain but supervision and discipline are the responsibility of the hostess. Children (and their actions) remain the responsibility of their parents or party organizers at all times.

Hygiene, Health & Safety

Faces need to be clean and ready to be painted! Please wipe noses too. Wipes and tissues are provided. Children love having their faces painted but I will not paint anyone who does not want to be painted. If a child is uncomfortable or wants me to stop for any reason, I will do so. Due to insurance, only children aged 3 and over may have their face painted, Children aged 2 - 3 can have a small cheek, arm or hand design. I use professional face paint and poly glitters that are safe for cosmetic use on the face. My paints are water based and are specifically for use on the face and body. Any concerns regarding your child's possible reaction to face paints? Must be discussed with me BEFORE being painted. I will be as careful as possible when painting, I accept no responsibility if face paint gets transferred onto surfaces, inflatable's, clothing, carpets, etc I cannot paint anyone who appears to have an apparent skin complaint – Cold Sores, Chicken Pox, Conjunctivitis, open cuts etc. In some cases we will offer to paint an arm or hand. Water is changed regularly throughout the painting session, and a clean sponge used for every person. My kit is thoroughly cleaned after each event.
