 Face Painting FAQ

  • How safe is your face paint? What brands or types do your artists use?

    We use only the best-quality professional face paint brands – most commonly that means Paradise/Mehron, Wolfe, GlitterFX, Ben Nye, and Snazaroo brand cakes. All are hypoallergenic and completely safe for the skin! In 20 years we have never had a problem with skin reactions. If parents are worried about reactions for their children with very sensitive skin, then we recommend doing a hand or arm-paint instead of the face. Face paint designs wash off easily with a little soap and warm water.

  • How long does it take to paint each face?

    Most face paint designs take 3-6 minutes each, depending on the simplicity or complexity of the designs. Basic or Plus artists can each cover 15-25 designs per hour depending on the complexity. For events where tons of kiddos are present, we recommend a basic artist and that they bring only 6-8 extra-simple design options to choose from to get as many little ones through as possible during their given time frame. Communicate with your face painter at your event to let them know what the expectation is for how quickly they should move – or alternately if they can take extra time on each design to make them extra-cool!

  • What about painting hands or arms or bodies? Can adults get in on the fun too?

    We paint designs on hands and arms and legs all the time. Any of our designs can be painted anywhere on the body — even on pregnant bellies or bald heads! In fact, painting on an arm or leg, where there is more space to work on, allows for bigger, bolder design-work. Face painting is not just for the kids – adults can always get in on the fun too – our “Plus” face painters are often booked for adults-only parties and events…
