We provide: FACE PAINTING - CHEEK ART - BODY ART - GLITTER TATTOOS & COSTUMED CHARACTERS for any type of event. We will also barter our services for services or product (at our discretion), so please contact us and let's see what we can work out! Another offering we have for those big company picnics and festivals is a 10x10 decorated tent to provide shade and a fun looking area at your event. The Happy Face Painter only uses 100% FDA approved, non-toxic, hypo-allergenic products to avoid reactions on the skin. We will do skin testing at a parent's request for a child with allergies, but even children with allergies have not had any problems with our products. So often I hear that children get their face painted at an event and they had a terrible skin reaction, then the parent thinks all face paints are unsafe. However, their child was most likely painted by an unexperienced, uneducated painter by products that were not FDA approved for the skin, or, unfortunately, painted by acrylic paints (which are the WORST product to put on a child's sensitive skin). The Happy Face Painter always carries the MSDS sheets with the list of ingredients in all our products and are proud to say that we have never had a single allergic reaction from the thousands and thousands of children we have painted over the years. We carry fully liability entertainer's insurance but that is because most of our corporate clients require a business they hire to be insured.
The Happy Face Painter stays educated in the field of face painting by attending conferences, researching new products and practices gained by networking with other face painters on an international Google email group. Safety is the utmost importance to us and we use hygienic practices while working, keeping our work areas, products and supplies as clean as possible. We will use anti-bacterial gels or wipes to keep our hands clean. Also, after each event, our products go through a rigorous cleaning and disinfection by using products specially made for removing paint safely and gently. We also will use a separate sponge on each child to avoid the spreading of germs and, if the situation arises, we will refuse to paint a child who has any signs of pinkeye, a heavy acne problem or open wounds because we do not want to contaminate our paints or supplies. Safety is just as important to us as it is to you!
