Do you have public liability insurance and a current DBS?
Yes, Daisy Jane's does have our own Public Liability Insurance.
With regard to DBS (old CRB) there is no legal requirement for Face Painters to have one, this is because we will never be left unattended to care for a child or vulnerable person. Also as a self employed/sole trader you are unable to apply for a fully enhanced DBS as these can only be issued if a request from an employer is sent to the DBS Service. If you have any more questions about this, please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do I need to provide anything?
On booking we will discuss with you what is available at the location of the event/party. Normally we only need 2x adult sized chairs. But we are able to supply our own if needed.
If you are having an outdoor event then a shelter/gazebo would be greatly appreciated, however we are also able to supply one if needed although this may incur an additional charge for 2 hour parties.
Do you paint under 3's faces?
Due to insurance we are unable to paint faces of children under 3 years. The professional paints are all recommended for use on 36 months and over so this is something we take very seriously. Unfortunately we will not be able to paint a child under 3 even if they have been painted before.
Its worth noting that we will also never paint the face of a child who says no, are upset, sleeping or very reluctant. We want every child to enjoy their face painting experience.
How long will my face painting or SFX makeup last?
This depends on many factors including sweating, dribbling, the environment you're exposed to etc, so we are unable to guarantee a specific length of time.
However, on average the face painting should last until its washed off with soap and water and SFX should last the few hours for your party.
Face paint is water based, so will come off if exposed to rain/water play! Glitter tattoos are temporary and last up to 7 days. Chunky festival glitter will last until washed off with soap and water.
How can I remove the face painting or SFX?
Face paints are best to be cleaned of with soap and water. Wet wipes should be avoided as these are not meant for use on the face and certain wipes have ingredients in them that react with the face paint and will cause staining. Some colours may leave slight stains due to their strong pigment, but this will come off with a second wash.
We will discuss with you how to remove SFX makeup at the time of applying as this will depend on what makeup is use Printed removal instructions will be provided as well as special removal product if required.
How far will you travel?
Although based in Leicestershire we are able to travel to many other areas, any additional travel expense will be included in your quote so giving the location of your event is helpful in order for us to give you an accurate price.
What paints do you use?
We use various brands, all of which are bought from professional face painting suppliers and are of the highest quality and EU/FDA Approved. Brands include:
Tag, Diamond FX, Global Colours, Face Paints Australia, Superstar, 3rd Degree, Mehron, Skin Illustrator, Ben Nye and more.
How many faces would you paint per hour?
Depending on design complexity approx 12-14 faces per hour based on children sitting one after the other. We can not guarantee every child will be painted if you wish to stop all activities for refreshments. We quote and make guarantees on the number of children being painted on the basis that we paint continually for the agreed amount of time.
Do you do full body painting?
Sorry, this is not something we offer at this time.
Do you paint pregnancy bumps?
Yes, so please contact us to discuss my rate and your requirements. More information can be found on the Pregnancy Bump Section of this site.
