We offer special discounted rates for children's birthday parties and other small family events. Our rates depend on the size/length of the party and the location. Minimum time 1.5 hours with half-hour pricing increments thereafter.
The reason we tend to work for 2 to 3 hours at children's birthday parties is because parties can be quite large, sometimes 30 or more children, and we want to ensure that every child is treated with special care, has a good personal experience with face painting, is breath-taken with the result, and most importantly that EVERY child who wants to, gets painted. It is not physically possible to do a special job in less than 5 minutes per face.
As mothers of pre-school children, we have been at too many parties where the face painter is booked for short period (didn't set expectations with the host) and simply packs up to leave for their next booking with these little children still lined up waiting to be painted. The face painter is not there to witness the fall-out, normally heightened by excess sugar consumption....
If your party is on a week day, ask about our weekday special.
A travel fee may apply for events out of our usual area.
The Face Painters: an INFORMAL network of individual client-focused artistic face painters ranging in age from 17 to 'over 50'. We work together at large events, notify each other of work opportunities, and yet we also compete in the marketplace. We each work for our own account and rates may vary considerably. All of the Face Painters have been properly trained, work to high standards, are highly presentable and well-spoken.
