Face Painting info
The safest, most efficient painting
speed for children is around 10 - 12 faces
or designs per hour, per painter. It can vary
depending on the request, but it's the best
average for gauging what's achievable
in the time you have. Adult faces can be a
little more involved but we'll be happy to
advise on what will work best for you.
Set-up is very simple; each painter
needs a table space & two chairs work from.
Regular height is always best. Overhead cover
is generally required for most outdoor events to shield from the elements.
Suitable for ages 2 years +

Paint is best removed with warm water, a flannel & a little soap.

Be assured, allergic reactions to face paint are incredibly rare.
However, to minimise any risk or sensitivity, anyone suffering from any dry skin conditions (such as eczema or psoriasis), contagious infections (such as cold sores or conjunctivitis) or a severe allergy (such as a nut allergy) should not be painted. Any spots, sore or broken skin cannot be painted.
Painting is always undertaken at the participants risk.
