PLEASE NOTE - UNTIL A RETAINER/DEPOSIT IS PAID and confirmed by Kathy Rollwage, an artist has not been booked. I'm UNABLE to hold most gig dates open more than a day or two, so there is a limited time to make that retainer, to secure.
We are not your typical face painters. A smile on your face puts a smile in our hearts!
**** As a courtesy, please respond to quotes, so that I can notate accordingly ****
We work as fast as humanly possible, but we try to make it as much about the moment and not just the painting itself. We consider every painting an opportunity to make a difference! If you are looking for High-Volume style paintings, then we are probably not the company for you! We work fast and furious, but still want the guests to enjoy the painting process. We try our best to do 10-12 per hour, and sometimes manager 15-20 or more! A lot depends on when the guests arrive and their ages & behavior.
We are available for small private parties or BIG CORPORATE EVENTS! A retainer SEALS THE DEAL AND ARE NON-REFUNDABLE (BUT TRANSFERABLE TO A FUTURE, MUTUALLY AGREED UPON DATE). Retainers must be made and confirmed by the artist prior to the event.
Thank you for checking out our profile! We offer several entertainment options, including FANTASTIC FACE PAINTINGS, GLITTER TATTOOS. EACH painting or tattoo is individualized, often including a photo taken (digital or other) that we share FREE of charge! I'm happy to upload to a Walgreens near you for prints! We can customize our paintings to meet your budget, but like most artists we generally recommend 1 hour of painting time for every 10-12 children. That's only 5-6 minutes per child, so that is pretty quick! We offer a "cheat sheet" menu when speed is especially important. We do our best to arrive 30-45 minutes to an hour ahead of time, but with DFW traffic this is not always possible. Our goal is to paint the birthday child before guests arrive! Please don't ask us to stay over and paint "one more child" without compensation.
The first hour will range from $90-125, depending on how close the artist lives and other factors. Plus there will be adjustments to multiple hour events (Example; $125 for the first hour, $100 for the second hour. etc.) Rates determined by location and I will sometimes consider a lower hourly rate if the drive time is minimal for the artist. I generally reduce hours for multiple hour events and will also reduce for an entire event near SW Arlington (76017). I have Face Painters, Balloon Twisters, Henna Artists, Glitter Tattoo Artists and more available!
WHAT PRODUCTS WE USE, HOW WE WORK AND MORE:
-Cosmetic grade Face Paints, Glitter and Colorini! Safe for and recommended for children 3 & up.
Face Painting is easily removed with a little baby oil and some tear free shampoo.
Glitter Tattoos & Colorini are waterproof and last three to five days! They will wear off or can be removed with baby oil or isopropyl/rubbing alcohol. They are perfect for pool parties, hot summer days and waterslides!
- FLEXIBLE scheduling and COMPETITIVE pricing! Rates vary from $100-$150 per hour, depending on location and other factors! I will sometimes work for a lower rate, if the party is near my home or small in size. Please email or quote with all the details for the best possible pricing! We have Spanish Speaking and Sign Language Speaking artists. We like you to get the most for your money and so we can provide a customized "menu board" of things we paint the fastest!
- PARTY HELP - We have connections in the field and are happy to help you find additional fun makers (clown, balloonists, magician, bounce house & more) after you book us! You can find us all over the internet under Merry Heart Face Painting! WE have close to 60+ reviews on Gig Salad.
*** VERY IMPORTANT ***
Once again, a retainer is what seals the deal and until I receive it, the date/time is open to other callers. I fill up quickly, so please pay the retainer (varies based on overall fee) as quickly as possible, *****after you confirm by phone or email that I'm still available, of course.*******
