How much do you charge?
Minimum fee $70 for 10 children then $6 per child thereafter plus a mileage charge of $1.00 per km from our Studio.
What if I don't have 10 children?
No trouble, the minimum charge is $70 plus mileage. And don't forget there's probably parents there too, they often loving getting face painting done!
What if I have more than 10 children?
It's $70 per party of 10 children then $6 per child thereafter plus mileage. So if you have 20 children the cost is $70 plus 10 x $6 = $130 plus mileage.

Yes we can, corporate rates are $100 per hour per artist with a minimum booking time of 2 hours. Your company will be sent an invoice on completion of the work, payment is expected upon receipt of the invoice.

We will take bookings right up to the day of the party provided we have the time available, but to avoid disappointment make your booking as soon as possible.
What age is suitable to be painted?
We recommend to paint from 2.5 years to 103 years! Some younger children may be happy to be painted. If any child doesn't want to be painted we will not force them, afterall it's about having a fun time at a party.
What paints do you use and are they safe for use on skin?
The brands we use are Snazaroo and TAG. These have past Cosmetic regulations in Australia, USA and UK and are all designed purely for the use on skin.
What if my child has allergies?
No trouble, 48 hours prior to the party we'll get you to call into the Studio with the child and we'll do a skin patch test. This involves us putting a wee bit of face paint behind the ear or on the wrist and if you get any redness or irritation in the hours following then it's no go for this child. Otherwise it's party on!
