Policies & Recommendations

  • Your event date is not solid until I have confirmed that the date/time you requested is available and the booking/trip fee has been received.
  • All events require payment at time of service.      
  •  If your company or organization requires an invoice in order to have the funds available at time of service, I will be happy to provide one in advance.
  • I accept cash, credit cards,debit cards, check or money orders as payment on site. I also accept credit or debt cards as payment through PayPal on the website. 
  • I generally put out a "TIP" jar unless specifically asked not to in advance of the event.
  • I use only high quality professional FDA approved face paints, temporary tattoo ink, glitters and glitter tattoo adhesive.
  • I reserve the right to NOT paint the faces of: persons with open cuts, abrasions, blisters, or rashes on the face, conjunctivitis, runny noses, fevers or other obvious communicable health issues. I will be glad to substitute a design on the person's hand, arm or leg in these cases.
  • Because face painting should be a delightful, fun experience, I will never force young children to be painted or allow parents to hold them down so they can be painted. This should be a wonderful, happy, memorable experience, so if they are uncomfortable with having their faces painted perhaps they would rather have their hand, arm or leg painted.
  • All paints are water based, professional make up made from FDA approved ingredients. The Lather & Lift method works extremely well for removal. You lather up with gentle soap and apply to face, allow to stay on face a moment, reactivating the paint and then lift off with a wet wipe, paper towel or wash cloth. Some colors may require a second washing for complete removal, however this is rather rare. 
  • Designs may be left on overnight... but I do not recommend it. If you do choose to sleep with the design on, I strongly recommend you cover the pillow with an old T-shirt or something you don't care about being stained to protect your good bed linens. A towel is too rough and will remove your design if you rub against it.
  • I strive to maintain the highest standards of sanitation.
  • I do high quality, full face designs like you see at major theme parks.
