For parties of 15 or less - each child will be able to have face paint and glitter tattoo (applies to 2 hour party bookings).

Artist does ask that a space and seating be provided for event, if not available please notify artist 14 days before event.

 Face Painting Policy
Face paints are recommended for use on children aged two and over - their skin is too sensitive and the immune system still developing - there is also a risk of prompting future allergies. We will not paint full faces on children under three, but a small picture on the hand or leg may done on children aged between two and three, at the parents own risk. We will not paint children less than two years of age under ANY circumstances.  
A child cannot be held in restraint or otherwise forced to get their faces painted. This should be a magical experience not a traumatizing one.  
The client is responsible for informing parents of attending children that there will be a face painter/temporary glitter tattoo artist at the event, and will advise the artist if there are any children that cannot participate.
We are UNABLE to paint anything which is offensive or illegal, nor will we paint anyone who is intoxicated, violent or abusive. Parents must supervise their children at all times.

Balloon Twisting 

Latex balloons are considered to be a MAJOR choking hazard for small children. for this reason our insurance require that we hand ballon sculptures to the supervising adult for all children under 3 years old. DO NOT Allow any child to put balloons in their mouth.

Working Area: If the event is outdoors, the Client agrees to provide a covered, comfortable area that is a minimum of six feet by six feet. The Client understands that I will not paint or tattoo without sun and rain protection to protect my products and equipment. If conditions require that I set up my own shade and rain protection, the client agrees to pay the $30.00 tent fee and understands that the time I spend setting up/taking down the tent is billable at my hourly rate. To avoid the additional billable hours, please call ahead if you are unsure if your area is suitable.
