If I go face-paint in your house for a small party, I need access to a table or a kitchen counter top. My materials cover about 2 feet X 3 feet in surface. If you have a high kitchen stool, I can use that or I can bring my own high director's chair so clients sit comfortably while I paint standing up. Good light is always necessary.
If the event is bigger, I require a table and again, good light. It is preferable to have my station against a wall, so my products are not as easily accessible to little curious hands! You may also wish to think how the lineup will form, as we do not wish to obstruct any busy spot.
I can paint up to 20-22 children per hour if the designs are small- like cheek or eye art, or simply quick masks.
Usually, for high-quality face-painting, lots of full faces with a mix of half-faces, between 12 to 14 clients per hour is my average.
Please also remember that not only children love to have their faces, shoulders and ankles painted - adults do too!! Partial body-painting and small face-painting pieces are extremely popular during corporate chic evenings. Ladies are beautiful, showing their nicest garments, and there is always a little spot I can find to paint a false piece of jewelry or a tiny tattoo-like design. It is the ideal activity to have between the doors opening and the formal sitting dinner time - these 2 hours where drinks and appetizers are served and people mingle.
I come earlier to set up. Clients pay me for the actual painting time only.
Payments can be arranged accordingly for extra half-hours.
