Face Painting Materials
I only use professional water based face paints which are fully compliant with EU and FDA toy and cosmetic regulations. These paints are hypoallergenic and include anti-bacterial properties which are specifically formulated for use on the face and skin.
Paint can easily be removed using mild soap or a cream based cleanser and water. This may need to be repeated for some heavily pigmented paints to remain any residual stains.
Water is changed regularly during a booking and clean sponges used for each face. All equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each booking.
If you are making a booking for a children’s party, please ensure all parents are aware in advance that a face painter will be on site, especially when parents/guardians are unlikely to be present. It is the host’s responsibility to ensure that all parents/guardians have been informed and that any comments are relayed back to me.
Health, Safety & Wellbeing
I have all childrens' safety and wellbeing in mind at all times and as a result I reserve the right not to paint under certain conditions – see below for examples as the list is not exhaustive:
- I will not paint faces of anyone under 3 years of age. The face paint manufacturers do not recommend paint for anyone below this age and very young children can sometimes be overwhelmed by the results. I may paint a small design on hands or arms of children younger than 3 years of age but this will be at my discretion.
- I will not paint anyone who is obviously unwell (runny nose/temperature/rash) or has any other visible skin complaint (eczema; chicken pox; acne; cold sore; open wounds; eye infections etc).
- I will not paint anyone against their wishes (this may result in stopping painting before the final result if a child becomes uncomfortable or changes their mind). Please do not force your child to be painted if they really are uneasy or unwilling – face painting should be an enjoyable experience for both the child and parent.
Children must be under constant adult supervision whilst being painted or waiting their turn.
If you believe the person to be painted has sensitive skin, a skin patch test can be carried out. It is the guardian’s responsibility to inform me in advance if this is the case. I can not be held liable for any allergic reaction to the paint.
Without prejudice I reserve the right not to paint any persons I feel should not be painted, or to refuse any designs which may be deemed inappropriate or offensive.
I carry full public liability insurance and hold an enhanced CRB check.
