What type of paint and glitter do you use?
I use only FDA approved water based paints and make up grade bio glitter. For bling I use double sided medical tape or body safe glue.
My favorite paint brands are currently: Diamond FX, Wolfe, FAB, TAG and global!
Are the paints safe?
They are all FDA approved and I try my best to have lots of hygiene practices in place whilst working.
What hygiene methods do you have in place whilst working?
I will not face paint anyone with open wounds, cold sores or eye infections and I use clean sponges and water for every new child.
How do you remove the paint?
All paint is water based and easily removed with soap and water! Wipes aren't necessary and please don't scrub- the paint will wash off as it dilutes with the water! All bling is easily peeled off.
How long does a face paint take and how long will the paint last?
Depending on the design the face can take anywhere from 3-7 minutes, and it will last until the design becomes wet, whether through washing or sweat!
How many faces can you paint per hour?
I usually say around 10 full faces, but it depends on the complexity of the design and type of event, I have been know to paint around 15 an hour- but that's not very fun for anyone!
Do you ever work for free for charity?
I usually limit myself to a small number of events per year (usually not during busy season), as it entails losing money due to kit, travel and potentially losing out on other gig costs. But if you'd like to email me, I will always read proposals and consider.
What type of space or equipment is needed?
Depending on the type of event - I don't usually need much. Sometimes chairs, access to clean water and a sink, and shelter from harsh weather conditions!
What type of payment is accepted?
We accept all major cards, checks, PayPal or cash.
What type of service agreement do you have in place?
I send out a contract and service agreement which is valid from when it has been signed by both Smart Face Painting LLC and the client and when the deposit has been received.
