Anti Spam
We can cater for large events. The Face Painters can normally round up multiple artists to delight your guests.  

We do not normally dress up as clowns or other characters. Many small children are absolutely terrified of adults in costume.  Face painting is invasive to personal space, requiring the artist to get really close to the face. We dress in normal clothing appropriate to the event.  We simply look and behave like somebody's mommy (which most of us are).   If you specifically want a very gentle face painting clown, just let us know and Pepsi will be on her way!

Learn to Face Paint like a Pro!   Come to a personalised workshop at a time convenient to you. We love to share our skills and will teach you everything you need to know including hygiene, base blending, brush strokes, where to get professional quality water-based face paints and the best value brushes.  You will paint at least three full faces.  You will be inspired by the course content and amazed by our very reasonable rates.  At the end of the day you will have enough knowledge to start painting your friends and family. With practise on your quality and speed, you will be able to offer your skills as a face painter for paid events.  Workshops are offered by Penny in Knysna and Misha in Gauteng. 

We also sell imported professional cosmetic face paint, glitter and fake wound kits!  Take a look at our selection at

FABSA Membership
Penny is a founder member, Certified Professional Face Painter and Approved Instructor of the Face and Body Painters' Association of South Africa.  FABSA promotes professional training and encourages the use of safe products and techniques.
High Standards
NB: We are meticulous about cleanliness and we use a clean sponge for every face, which is what you might expect, but is not widely practised in SA.  We adhere to high standards of hygiene and paint according to our own strict Code of Practice
Professional Body Paints
We use imported hypo-allergenic professional face paint, including  Diamond FXTAG Body ArtSnazaroo and Kryolan all of which comply with the stringent FDA and European Cosmetic Directive for face painting and body painting. These safe non-acrylic face paints wash off easily with cold water.  No peeling or scrubbing required. We use skin-safe adhesive and fine poly-glitter for our glitter tattoos.

Diamond FX
Glitter Tattoos and Realistic-Looking Temporary Tattoos

Glitter tattoos are created by applying a cosmetic-grade adhesive to the skin, either with a stencil, or freehand.  Glitter is pressed onto the adhesive, resulting in a beautiful tattoo which lasts for a few days.

Temporary tattoos are created with EU-compliant cosmetic-grade pigments (not dyes) that sit on the skin surface and do not stain skin. The tattoo is applied with a stencil and will last a few days, unless rubbed off with a cloth and warm soapy water.  

Glitter and temporary tattoos are suitable for sensitive skins.
