To receive a quote please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215.234.4617
with your event info: ADDRESS, DATE, face painting TIME (2 hour minimum) &
for private parties the NUMBER of children. If you don't want to supply a home address please provide the closest landmark or intersection. A quote cannot be given with just a town name. An inquiry does not imply your event/date/time is held.
The calendar fills up quickly & months in advance... BOOK YOUR EVENT EARLY! (Last minute availability inquiries are welcomed!!!)
Once you reserve a date & time a 50% non-refundable deposit is required
immediately... (this applies to last minute bookings as well).
Your reservation is not guaranteed until the non-refundable deposit is received.
Unfortunately, if your deposit is not received immediately your date & time are forfeited. Deposit information will be provided once your reservation is made. The balance will then be due upon the arrival of the face painter at your event.
A date cannot be reserved without a time.
A date and time cannot be "penciled in".
A rain date cannot be held without a non- refundable deposit.
If your event is cancelled or postponed for any reason or circumstance the deposit will not be refunded. This is because all other events wanting your date & time were turned away. The deposit CANNOT be used toward a future date. There are no exceptions. If the face painter should need to cancel every effort will be made to find a replacement painter. If a replacement painter cannot be found or you do not want one your deposit will be returned.
All designs are hand painted... no stencils! Per hour the designs average:
approx 8 moderate full faces
approx 13 half face designs
approx 20 quick gorgeous cheek/arm art
Please be sure to book enough time for everyone - including the grown ups! They like to have fun too! If you choose only to have the children painted at your event please let the grown ups know! The face painter may be able to stay longer if the schedule allows. You will be charged in half hour increments.
At your event the face painter will need:
- 2 average height chairs & a standard size table in a spacious area (preferably indoors) that is for face painting only. For sanitary & safety reasons this table
cannot be shared with other party/event activities such as another entertainer, vendor, gift table, crafts, food, dessert table or dining table.
* (the following cannot be used: child size furniture, coffee table, tray table or tall chairs)
- SHADE FROM THE SUN & PROTECTION FROM WET WEATHER
(if outside... please consider the time of day & sun location to ensure there will be shade throughout the entire face painting time... "under a tree" may not mean there is shade)
- ADEQUATE LIGHTING
- A PARTY ATTENDEE at private parties would be super helpful to oversee the excitement around the face painting table. Party hosts find it helpful to hand out numbers to the children before the face painter arrives so the children aren't waiting in line for face painting & missing out on the other party festivities you worked so hard to plan.
AT LARGE CELEBRATIONS SUCH AS CARNIVALS, FAIRS, COMMUNITY DAYS, SCHOOL EVENTS the sunny face painter is usually one of the most popular activities so an approximate 10 x 10 area designated for face painting only would be essential. This space will accommodate the standard size table, 2 chairs, face painting line, families, strollers, foot traffic. It allows elbowroom & breathing space for the child & face painter & makes for a much better experience for your important guests, attendees & customers!
If possible a VOLUNTEER would be helpful! This person will stay throughout the entire event to assist with keeping the line in order (behind the highly anticipated painting chair) & most importantly...(so you are not charged for extra time)
THE VOLUNTEER will need to END THE LINE,
LET EVERYONE KNOW FACE PAINTING IS CLOSED and
UNFORTUNATELY THE FACE PAINTER CANNOT PAINT "just one more"... for ANY reason.
(this makes it unfair to folks that waited in line, folks that were turned away already & also unfair to the face painter who is only booked until a certain time.
As much as the face painter would love to stay sometimes there is another gig after yours... OR the face painter may be tired from painting non stop for hours... OR the face painter has to get home to her own family).
At the face painting table a "menu" board of designs will be displayed for the guests to choose from. To accommodate larger groups quick but gorgeous cheek art can be done. Face painting is offered ONE PER CHILD.
I am unable to provide face painting free of cost for any event or organization
(non-profit or profit) but I am willing & more than happy to collaborate with your organization in a mutually beneficial manner.
The following are the most popular & effective ways used to recoup fees at events:
* sponsorship - have the face painting fee paid by a group, school, family or a local business (insurance office, bank, realtor, restaurant, supermarket...)
* sell tickets
* provide a donation jar at the face painting table & all the contributions would go
to your organization
Please contact me so we can discuss your needs!
