To best answer this question, tip if you feel that the artist or performer at the party has done an exceptional job in helping you celebrate your party or special event and keep the stress down to a minimum.  It is customary to tip your service provider if they have provided you with quality service.   No matter how small or big the tip is, the artist or performer will feel that they did a good job in providing you with quality service. If the artist does not receive a tip,  it is usually an indication that you were not happy with the service provided to you in some way. 

Question:  (Balloon Animals) What type of balloons do you use?

ANSWER: We use only the very best balloons. They are 100% professional quality made by Qualatex.

Question: (Face Painting) What type of designs do you do? 

ANSWER: The artist will usually work according to the amount of people they have in line. So if its a LONG line of people, it will be a quick design pertaining to the specialized event or what ever the special request of the person is.  If it's a birthday party, it will be a special 3 minute design according to the imagination at the request of the guest. For the Special Birthday Person it will be a 3-5 minute design of something EXTRA special. Some events may require a board of a set amount of designs; in that situation a board and/or book of designs will be provided for the event upon request by the event coordinator.

Question: (Face Painting / Body Art)  Do you do Custom Work?

ANSWER:   We can do almost whatever your imagination can think of. We do offer pre-natal belly painting for photography. We don't do theatrical special effects horror, gore, or zombies with latex and / or fake blood. However we can provide quality custom artwork by special request and appointment for a special price. Contact us with your ideas to get your quote today!  Yes, I do custom work by request and appointment only. Contact us today for a quote!

Question: (Face Painting) What type of paints do you use?

ANSWER: I use 100 % professional high quality paints, Kryolan, Ben Nye, Paradise, FAB, TAG, Global Colors, Wolfe, Snazaroo, and Mehron.  

Question: (Face Painting or balloons) I'm not sure how long to book you for?

ANSWER: Usually a minimum of 2 hours works best for most occasions. However that amount of time can vary according to the amount of guests needing entertainment service. ONE artist can face paint or create a balloon for about 10-12 people per hour based on a 3-5 minute session. The artist can face paint or create balloons at more per hour when the artist can do simple one balloon creations or simple face paint designs. The more detailed the work, the more time it takes. Plus you also need to take into consideration children don't always know what they want and take time to decide. However, we do provide a selection of choices to help expedite time. Face paint or balloon twisting for large groups, which can be discussed in more detail with the event coordinator, may require additional team members at additional cost.

Question: (Face Painting) How old do you have to be for face painting?

ANSWER: Anyone ages 3 and up to teens and adults can be painted!

It is highly recommended for Children ages 2 and under NOT to get painted due to having very delicate sensitive skin. They are very young and their skin could be sensitive to any type of face paints at this tender age. 

Question: (Face Painting or Balloons) How do you control the line?

ANSWER: We ask that a line manager be provided by the host at ALL events and parties. If one cannot be provided we will provide one for additional cost. The artist can not control the line as it is the artist's job to focus on the guest being taken care of. The line manager must keep guests waiting in line at a minimum of 3 feet away from the artist at all times, so that the artist can provide you the best possible service as quickly as they can for each happy guest. Also, we would like to add that balloons pop, that is just what they do, balloon creations are limited to 1 per guest. :-)

Question: (Face Painting) If a guest appears ill, can they still be painted?


ANSWER: If a guest asks to be painted and they appear to be ill, due to new covid regulations,no the child can not be painted. Please don't put your child or the artist at risk. Any guests with a cough, cold sores, rashes, runny noses, a fever, who are sick or appear to be sick will not be painted. These guests will be treated with sensitivity and offered a sticker to their parent instead. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian of the child not to put them into line if they are aware their child is ill. Please don't put your artist or guests in that awkward situation. Please make sure your guest's faces are clean and healthy. Thank you! :-)

Question: What happens if the weather changes or I need to cancel?  

ANSWER: In the event that you have to cancel your event for any reason, you only forfeit the $50.00 or $100.00 booking fee, which is non-refundable at the time you booked your event.  You may however reschedule your event at no additional cost. The remainder balance is not due until the artist arrives at your event and the booking fee would be applied to your total cost. It is at that time that your payment would be due and non-refundable. If you paid in advance the full amount, then you have 6 months to reschedule your special event. Your non-refundable booking fee is good for 6 months if you need to cancel or reschedule. Please discuss this with your party coordinator prior to your booked party date should you need to make changes.

Question: Why is there a booking fee?

There is a fee because this is a intellectual entertainment service that we provide on a first come first serve basis. The fee goes towards your total balance due. It is not an additional cost. The fee reserves your day & time slot so that it is not booked out by

someone else. Day and times go quickly and this insures that you will have entertainment provided to you on your special date and time, even if you want to book it a year in advance!
