 Face Painting Materials 

We 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 for use on the face and skin. Paint can easily be removed using mild soap and water. Some skin types are prone to some very mild initial staining – a small amount of mild baby shampoo will remove this gently.

Water is changed regularly during a booking and clean sponges used throughout. Equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each booking.

1) We have your children’s safety and interests in mind at all times and as a result, we reserve the right not to paint under certain conditions – see below for examples as the list is not extensive:

·  i) We 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. We may paint a small design on the hands or arms of children younger than 3 years of age but this will be at the discretion of the face painter.

·   ii)We 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).

·  iii) We will not paint anyone against their wishes (this may result in stopping painting before the 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.

At an event, 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 the face painter in advance if this is the case. Josie’s face painters cannot be held liable for any allergic reaction to the paints.

Without prejudice, we reserve the right not to paint any persons we feel should not be painted.

We carry full public liability insurance and our lead artist, Josie, personally holds an enhanced DBS check.
