the number of guests listed above is the amount of guests that can be painted with fair friendly designs (smaller, quicker designs such as 1/4 face,hand or cheek art). Full face designs take more time so count on a longer timeframe.
Book our service
I'm thrilled you've chosen Glitterbugz Face Painting to provide face painting for your event.
After we have corresponded and agreed on a date and time, we will hold your date and time 3 days. Please send a $50.00 deposit to hold your date. Your event is "not on the books" until the Retainer fee has been remitted.
The reason we require a Retainer Fee (non-refundable) is that once you have chosen to hire us to provide services for your event we will be turning away potential customers for your date and time. By paying this fee you are securing our time on our calander, making a committment to us. Then you will pay the balance due (less the $50.00 retainer) at the end of the event.
The "Nitty Gritty"
Here is some helpful info you should know.
Cancellation and Rescheduling:
Should the client for any reason postpone or reschedule there will be a fee of $25.00 for each date postponed or rescheduled. We will transfer your Retainer fee to the new date.
In the instance the client would like to reschedul services, we will do our best to accomadate a mutually agreeable date based on our availability and schedule.
The amount of time the facepainter is painting at the event is the cost of your event.
There will be a $45.00 fee for returned checks plus the amount of the check.
Parking must be provided for the artist near the event location, so that equipment may be unloaded.
The client will reimburse the artist for any parking fees, or provide parking validation.
Amount of Faces Painted:
Artists typically average 10-12 quality painted faces per hour, depending on the designs - which may not include "full faces". We cannot guarantee that all guests/children will be painted and may have to cut off the waiting line 15 minutes prior to our end time, so we may proceed to our next appointment.
Should your guest count be high, we will do our best to accomodate but we are only human! If artists time runs longer than anticipated you will be charged for the amount of time artist is at your event.
Artist is unable to supervise children.
Artist cannot accept responsibility for any child's behavior. Artist cannot see other children while she is painting. Please have an adult get the children in line and supervise them!
Travel Fee of $25.00 will be charged to any address more than 25 miles from the zip code 08234.
Weekday Events Fees are $75.00 for the first hour! Contact me for more information regarding weekday (Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday, Thursday) Rates.
How far in advance do I need to book you?
I have no set policy. As long as I am available, I can accept last minute bookings with no extra charge. However, you need to book me as early as possible to ensure someone else doesn't take your day! I suggest booking your party at least 5-6 weeks in advance.
How many hours do I need to book?
Plan to book at least 1 hour for every 10-12 children/adults to be painted. All of the children except one or two will want to be painted and often a few adults will also ask. Don't forget to include any siblings that will be at the party in your total head count.
How far into the party should I have you begin?
This depends on any other activities you may have planned.
Typically, within the first hour of the party, or after the children eat, and before they have the birthday cake.
Do you paint just the children or do adults also like to be painted?
Face Painting appeals to all ages! Some clients have me paint everyone, some just have me paint the children. It just depends on how much you want to spend. The more people painted, the more time and cost it will take. I will discuss this ahead of time with you.
Am I expected to tip you?
Tips are appreciated and accepted but never expected.
What type of Face Paint do you use and is it safe?
I use only the highest quality face paints which are hypoallergenic and FDA approved. I only use Snazaroo Face Paint developed only for face painting. Your painted face will stay on until you wash it off. Use soap and water or baby wipes to remove paint.
I cannot paint on anyones face who has broken out skin or cuts on the face due to safety reasons.
