How much do you charge for your face painting service?
I charge $100/hour for face painting. If your event is located in areas outside of Edmonton or Sherwood Park, a travel fee will be applied. The travel fee generally ranges between $25-$35 per event. You must book for one hour minimum. More information can be found in the 'Pricing Page'.
Do I need to send a deposit to secure my booking?
You may be asked to provide a non-refundable booking deposit for busy times (i.e. summer bookings) or for custom face painting (i.e. Halloween). If you wish to cancel a booking, please provide as much notice as possible.
How and when do I pay?
I accept cash, email transfers, or cheques if you are booking through a business or charity. Payment must be made before the event, when I arrive, or 15 minutes before your service is complete. I am often fully booked with very little turn around time, so it is important for me to have payment settled before the end of the event.
Do you charge for setup?
No, I will arrive about 15 minutes before the start of my scheduled time to set up, at no extra charge. Please note that if you would like me to stay past the scheduled time, you will be charged in 15 minute increments at my rate of $100/ hour.
Do you charge for travel?
If your event is in Edmonton or Sherwood park, there is no travel fee. For events outsides of these areas, a travel charge will apply, usually between $25-$35.
How many people can you face paint in one hour?
I can paint approximately 8 faces per hour. This allows for about 7 minutes per child. I have a variety of quick 7 minute designs, or more elaborate/large designs if there are less children at your event.
Is your face paint safe for my child?
Yes! I only use professional face paint that is safe to use. All cosmetics can on rare occasions cause allergic reactions. All products should not be applied to sensitive or broken skin. For a full list of products used, consult the 'Products Used' page.
Do you have a minimum booking time?
Yes, I book for a minimum of one hour.
How long should I book face painting for?
I like to paint no more than 12 people per hour. The amount of time you book for will depend on the number of attendants to your party and the complexity/ size of designs you would like.
How far in advance should I book?
There is no set amount of time you should allow for to guarantee a booking. However, as soon as you decide you want a face painter, you should book. Certain weekends or holidays can fill up quickly.
What do I need to do to get ready for face painting?
If you have a designated space / table for face painting, it is a good idea to have it cleared and clean in time for my arrival. However, I do bring my own table and chairs with me to every event. Some clients choose to create a sign-up list, to organize large groups.
Does face paint wash off easily?
Yes, the face paint is designed to come off with soap and water. Sometimes a faint residue is left behind after the paint is first washed off. By the next day, these traces of paint should disappear as the skin naturally exfoliates.
How long will the paint last for?
