I paint fun all over the San Francisco Bay Area at birthday and holiday parties, corporate events, fundraisers and fairs. Sonoma, Marin and Napa counties are closest to my home. You'll find me dressed as a Fairy, Pirate, friendly clown, Mini Mouse, Leopard, Mermaid, Superhero and other colorful, fun characters.
I use cosmetic grade non-toxic "paint" that's safe for all faces. Actually, it's specially formulated, water based make-up which comes off easily with soap and water. Wolfe Brothers and Kryolan are two of my favorite brands. Rest assured that everything I use is safe for the skin; I'm even insured.
See Yelp for my five star reviews:
"Auntie Stacey's face painting is beautiful. She's calm, collected and quick...She also brought the perfect amount of fun and silliness." - Ruth
"She arrived early, was organized and very professional. Preschoolers can be a little impatient but she was incredibly quick and detailed and always kept the line of children moving." Kimberly, Pre-school mom.
"An experience that will exponentially add value to your event!" - Natalie, Frog's Leap Winery
Costumed characters include: Fairy Princess, Mermaid, Pirate, Friendly Clown (no white face), Leopard, Holiday Elf, Harvest Fairy, 4th of July Patriot and more...
Adults and teens love avant guard fantasy makeup with lots of bling for a night out on the town. My glow in the dark, UV paints are great for clubbing! I love painting pregnant bellies! A great gift for baby shower fun. I offer water resistant airbrushed face and body paint, and glitter tattoos, which last 3-7 days. Great for pool parties, bar and bat mitzvahs. Teens (and adults) love them on their arms, shoulders, backs and ankles! They come off with alcohol and friction and are not recommended for use on the face.
I'm fastidious about cleanliness, and very careful not to paint near the eyes of wiggly children. I use disposable applicators for lip color. Always sensitive to the youngster's needs, I simplify designs if there's a long line of kids waiting for their turn and take more time for details if there isn't.
I've been face painting since 2008. Parties are my favorite places to paint and kids between the ages of three and ten are my biggest fans. I'm not ageist though – everyone is welcome to have something painted on them.
I have a book of designs for the kids to choose from but I like to unleash their imaginations. I do have greatest hits; Rainbow Unicorns, Toothy monsters, Snow Princess, cats of all kinds from pink to tiger, flaming arms, butterflies, skulls, sports teams.... But I love it when the kids come up with something unexpected – an eagle, Legoman, or a wounded skateboarder. Of course I also love it when they say, "Do whatever you want."
I hope to paint fun at your event!
