FAQ

How many faces can you do at an event?

On average 12-14 full faces per hour

How far will you travel?

Just about anywhere ... the cost depends on how far the party is from Harpenden, Herts., UK

How much do you charge?

This depends on the location, the number of children attending and therefore the length of the party. Please ring or email for a specific quote. I can also offer suggestions of what will work best for the numbers attending.

What products do you use and are they safe for my child?

The face painting products I use have all been thoroughly tested and the paints are skin safe. I have been using the brands for over 26 years with never an incident, but I am always willing to do a tester on their arm first.

Can my child have their face painted if they have a rash or a cold?

If your child has a runny nose or any type of skin complaint, for example, a rash, eczema, cold sore, etc. it is not advisable to paint their face however it may be possible to paint their leg, arm or hand instead.

How old does my child have to be to have their face painted?

I do not advise a full face painting on any child under 3 years old. However, at my discretion I can paint a small design such as ladybirds, rainbow, flowers or a spider on their arm or knee instead, as long they are at least 2 years old.

How do I remove the face paint?

The best way to remove the paints is with warm water, soap and a flannel. Baby wipes can often make the job harder since they may contain lanolin or other water barriers. Baby wipes are not recommended for use on faces.

Do I need a face painter with a CRB / DBS check?

Professional Face Painters are not required to have Police checks from the Disclosure and Barring Service (Formerly known as the Criminal Records Bureau). They advise that this is because face painters should not paint unaccompanied children. They state that Professional Face Painters do not fall within the 'eligible positions' required to have these checks, which are now known as Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
