Frequently Asked Questions

What type of materials do you use?
We only use professional, FDA compliant products. These materials are top quality,
cosmetic-grade, hypoallergenic, and made specically for the face and body.
**We NEVER use craft paints or craft glitters!!

What type of events do you do?
We do all sorts of events - limited only by your imagination! We do birthday parties, festivals and carnivals, school functions, grand openings, bridal showers, baby showers, pregnant bellies, or proms. Face paint makes any activity more fun!
We also can do specfic themes, such as Animals, Princess, Superhero, Pirate.
.. you get the idea!

Do you bring your own set up?
We need a 4-6ft rectangular table and a minimum of two chairs in a shaded, covered area preferably away from the moon bounce, trash recepticals and loud music. If you cannot provide such set-up, please let me know and I will be happy to bring my own items. If I need to bring my own pop-up tent and tables, just let me know, and I can bring that as well.

Even the best laid plans can still fail. Please have an alternative plan in case of rain or extreme temperatures. I also reserve the right to cease working and leave if there are extreme adverse working conditions. Adverse conditions included but not limited to: severe weather, destructive, violent, or extremely inappropriate behavior of a child or adult; illegal activities; dangerous conditions.

How do I pay for my event?
I require a $50 non-refundable booking fee due at the time of booking. This booking fee and a signed contract are needed to lock in your time and date.

**Please keep in mind when trying to book a time, that some weekends are very popular.**

I accept payments through Pay Pal and Square, checks and Cash. Please contact me for a contract, about alternate payment options, and for Corporate Event payments. Final payment is expected upon completion of job.

How many hours should I book for my party?
A typical party is two hours, painting about 20 people. If you are planning a public event, with a higher volume of guests, please refer to the public event/festival item below. Adults also enjoy being painted, so please expect several adults at your party will want to get painted as well.

How do you control the line?
It's best if a line manager can be provided by the party host. I can not
control the line as it is my job to focus on the person in the chair being painted. The Line Manager should keep the guests waiting in line at least 3 feet away from the artist at all times. This helps keep curious hands out of the paint and little ones from bumping the artist, table or chair.

What if a guest is sick?
To prevent the spread of germs or infections, anyone who is sick or appears to be sick will not be painted. This includes guests with colds, runny noses, cold sores, rashes, or open sores. They will be handled with sensitivity and offered an arm painting as an alternative. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian of the child to not put the child into that position, and to ask ahead of time for the alternate option.

Do you do public events or festivals?
Yes, we often set up at festivals, fairs and public events. In that case, we normally charge on a "pay-per-face" basis. This includes designs for cheeks or arms, as well as masks and full face designs. We will provide our own tent, tables, chairs, signage, as well as a line manager.

What areas do you service?
Northern Virginia and surrounding areas.
**Parties more than 20 miles from 20135 will incur a small travel fee of $1.00 per mile.**
