How many faces can you paint in 2 hours?

I can paint unto 21 faces depending on the complexity of the design.

What if there is not enough time to paint everybody's face?

If your booking time runs out and some people have not been painted yet, provided we do not have any pending engagements you can simple pay for additional time in half-hour increments.

Do you just do parties?

No I do anything that will require a face painter or body artist, the scope is endless but are great for business promotions, product promotions, one off paints, model promotional events, theatrical events including television/film, etc.

Can you paint at Pay Per Face Events?

Sorry but Enchanted Faces do not do PPF Events.

Who can be painted?

Face paints are not recommended for children under 3 years. For insurance purposes I only paint on children 3 years and over. Children between the ages of 2 and 3 years can have a small hand or arm design. Enchanted Faces has the right to turn anyone away who they think may be under these ages.

What if my child objects?

I will not paint any child that objects or I think is unhappy about being painted - they may find having a hand or arm design more enjoyable. I will not continue to paint any child that I think may be unhappy or distressed, face painting is about having an enjoyable experience.

Skin Conditions:

Anyone who appears ill, suffers will cold sores, conjunctivitis or any other skin complaint cannot be painted. If a child has eczema, cuts or grazes I will talk with the child and parent/guardian to discus alternative design or to paint the child's hand or arm. Enchanted Faces has the right to not paint anyone they think may be suffering from any of the above.

Do You Hold Public Liability Insurance?

Yes, I am insured with Equity and happy to provide a photocopy upon request.


Enchanted Faces is always looking to improve their skills and techniques. I have trained with many exceptional painters, including world class painter Mark Reid (Texas). I hope to improve my skills and have many more training sessions planned.

How should I remove face paint?

Face paints should only ever be removed with warm water and a mild baby soap and flannel, baby wipes should never be used! Some darker colors may linger, in this case you can use a washcloth with soap or cold cream.

Should you get any paint on your clothing, you can use OxyClean or other stain pre-treater and wash as normal.
