Frequently Asked Questions...

What kind of paints do you use?

• We use only high-quality professional theatrical makeup specifically designed for face and body painting. Our paints are water-based, hypoallergenic, and contain only FDA compliant ingredients that have been tested and approved as safe for use on children. Paints used are Snazaroo, Paradise, Kryolan and Wolfe Bros.

•We use only cosmetic grade, super fine cut, polyester dry glitters and glitter gels.

Is face painting sanitary?

• Yes, our face painting is sanitary. Proper hygienic practices are very important to us. We always use a clean cosmetic sponge and fresh water for each person being painted. Our brushes, sponges, and painting supplies are cleaned and sanitized thoroughly after each event.

What if a child has sensitive skin?

• If the person who is going to be painted has sensitive skin, we can do a patch test on the inside of the arm. As with any cosmetic product, we cannot guarantee that an allergic reaction, although rare, will not occur.

• It is recommended that only children over the ages of 2-3 years are painted, as children’s skin under this age is particularly sensitive and it is also difficult to sit still enough at this age.

• We will not paint anyone’s face who does not want to be painted, has a skin complaint i.e. eczema, chicken pox, conjunctivitis, cuts, bruises or anyone who seems obviously unwell. An alternative may be to paint a little something on their arm or back of their hand.

How do you get the paint off?

• Face paints can be easily removed by washing with mild soap or face cleanser and plenty of warm water and a washcloth. Some colors may stain the skin temporarily: usually red, green and black. This is not harmful and will fade within a day or so.
