Yes. Our artists hold individual insurance policies and we are happy to provide a photocopy upon request.

How many faces can you paint in one hour?

We can paint an average of 10-15 faces in an hour depending upon the complexity of the designs chosen.

Can you paint within the theme of my party?

Absolutely! The artist may need to "modify" an image to fit the time restrictions.

There are ALWAYS highly requested dates throughout every month. So reserve an artisit as soon as you have a confirmed date for your event.

Who can be painted?

Anyone! Face paint is not recommended for children under 2 years old without parental approval. However we will kindly offer a small design on the hand or arm to younger children and inexperienced or nervous children.

What if my child objects?

No person will be painted without truly being a willing participant. A quick design on the hand may be more enjoyable for anxious young children.

What if I have an illness, rash or other skin condition?

In the opinion of the artists, if someone appears to be suffering from a infectious conditions or irritated skin, they will not be painted. However, another area will be suggested that is safe and enjoyable.

We reserve the right to refuse to paint anyone who is abusive, violent or intoxicated.

How do I remove face paint?

Please do not use baby wipes. The rubbing alone can cause irritation of the skin. The best way to wash off water based face paint is as follows: Take liquid soap or lathered soap straight to the skin and rub the make up around the face. Use a wet soft rag or face sponge to wipe off the soapy makeup until the face is clean.
