Frequently Asked Questions
We have not painted faces at private events since January 2020 and at this time will not be doing so. Outdoor events, where there is lots of fresh air circulating; people maintaining safe distances, masks are being worn and proper precautions are taken, will be considered. Before being painted, each person will have their temperature checked and will not be painted if temp is over 99 degrees. They will need to have their face cleaned with a baby wipe and hands washed or sanitized before stepping up to the artist. Artist will be wearing N-95 masks as well as gloves. After each person painted, the artists will sanitize their gloved hands with hand sanitizer and sanitize all brushes and equipment used.
What is your Service Area?
We face paint regularly in Plainfield, Shorewood, Joliet, Channahon, Bolingbrook, Frankfort, Lockport, New Lenox, Romeoville, Minooka, Mokena, Morris, Lemont, Lockport, Orland Park, Tinley Park, Oswego and Naperville and mostly within 15 miles of the 60431 zip code with no travel cost. Because of travel time, we may need a travel fee of $2 per mile, if your event is further than 15 miles from 60431 and your party is less than 2 hours long.
What Services Do You Provide
We provide professional, fun, energetic face painters to face paint you and your guests at your party or event. We paint an agreed number of attendees but MAY be able to stay longer if more than expected number of people want to be painted, barring that we have another event to go to after yours. The extra time will be paid at the time of the services. We arrive 10 to 30 minutes early to set up.
We cannot supervise unruly children (or adults) and their behavior is the responsibility of the parents or hosts. We reserve the right to stop painting and leave without refunding any money in the event of destructive, violent or inappropriate behavior by a child, pet or adult, illegal activities or dangerous conditions including lightning and severe weather. The Client agrees to pay for any accidents or injuries and damage to our equipment and supplies caused by pets or guests.
What do I need to provide for the face painter?
We would need a table (minimum 3x3) and 2 chairs. The table can be a card table, dining room table or the picnic table you have in the back yard. A shady spot away from too much wind is needed if your event is outside - direct sunlight will melt the paint (and the artist). If it is too hot or too cold, please provide a comfortable work place inside - we won't leave a mess, promise! Adequate lighting is needed and access to a restroom and water. In case of inclement weather, please provide an alternate indoor location. If that is not available, the artist reserves the right to stop painting.
What kind of paint do you use?
We use high end, professional, water-based face paints that has superb coverage and high concentration of pigment – it is FDA approved for cosmetic use and is hypoallergenic and non-toxic. However, there cannot be guarantees that you or a guest won't be allergic to some of the ingredients and we are not liable for any allergic reaction to the paint. Click here for a list of ingredients in our paint. We also use cosmetic glitter.
At the artist's discretion we will NOT paint:
- Children under the age of One;
- Crying or Unwilling children (or adults);
- Someone who appears sick, runny noses, dirty faces, open wounds, skin conditions and anything that looks icky.
- Offensive or disturbing subject matter or people.

How do I remove Face Paint?
Apply mild soap or baby shampoo without water first and lather gently with fingers to loosen paint. Rinse off. Do not scrub. If some color remains, gently rub a cotton ball with baby oil or make-up remover.
As difficult as it will be to convince the little ones, we recommend that you remove face paint before bed time.
How far in advance do I need to make a booking and is there a deposit?

A $50 deposit is required for private parties and $100 for corporate events to save your date and time slot and can be made securely online through PayPal using any credit card.
