Prices

Our basic rate is $125 per hour. We can paint about 20-25 people per hour, or 30-35 if we do only small cheek/hand designs.

Unless you are closer than half an hour away, our minimum time is two hours.

For events longer than four hours, or public events where we can put out a tip jar, rates are negotiable.

Factors that influence negotiable rates include: distance, not-for-profit status, length of time booked, number of dates booked, number of artists required, tipping rules, and special requests.

Charity Requests

We receive dozens of requests for free appearances. While we do volunteer our services for events that are close to our hearts, it is simply not possible to accept every request, especially for events during our peak summer months.

If we do confirm a charity event with you, we will treat this booking as professionally as we would any other event.

Some thoughts on choosing the right painter for you

There are cheaper face painters out there, but remember you get what you pay for. When shopping around, make sure you ask how many faces the artist can paint in an hour. There are some artists in this area who paint 15 people per hour but their work is exquisite. There are other painters who can paint 50-60 people in an hour but their work is airbrushed with stencils.

Make sure you get the artist who actually painted what you see on their web site. Some companies have several different painters, so you may not get one with the same skill level you see in the photos. I personally painted everything you see on my web site. It's my goal to give you the best face painting experience possible, and to make sure you get your money's worth.
