Frequently Asked Questions
How many faces you paint in an hour?
Between 10-15 faces, depending on the detail and design chosen.
Some people can be suprised at this rate, but you break it down 10 per hour is only 6 miniutes a face for the child to get on the chair, explain what they want, get painted, look in the mirror,and get off the chair.
What face paints do you use?
We use only the highest quality face painting products and cosmetic grade glitters ensuring that we deliver professional results every time. Our face paints are soft on the skin and do not crack or flake off.
What is the best way to remove the paint?
Most people use Baby wipes or soap and water, however some colours do stain a bit (blues, reds and greens mainly) but if you gently rub 'no tears' shampoo or cleansing cream into the area until the makeup liquifies , then wipe off with tissues, wipes or damp cloth, THEN washing off with soap and water, the staining will not occur.
What are your hygiene ethics?
We adhere to strict hygiene ethics at all times. We only use one sponge per child, keep our brush water clean with brush sanitizer and use cotton buds for painting on the lips.
CAUTION: As a parent, you are responsible for your child, so if he/she has a skin allergy or has been exposed to contagious diseases such as chicken pox etc… please do NOT insist that the face painter paint him/her. This is not only dangerous for other children but puts the face painter in the difficult position of refusing.
Often we can paint on an arm or leg instead.
