Top Face Painting related questions

Apart from a comfortable space where they can sit with your guests and paint their faces, you may want to provide your guests with a washroom. Your guests should wash their faces before the paint goes on and be able to wash off the paint after the event. Your Tasker will also need clean water to mix colours and rinse their brushes in-between face paint applications.

Yes. Anyone with cuts or skin issues on their face should not have their faces painted. While most face paints are non-toxic and hypoallergenic, your Tasker can test the face paint if a guest might be allergic. They can apply paint on the guest’s wrist, then see if they develop an allergic reaction. If there are no reactions after 40 minutes to an hour passes, they can have their face painted. 

Yes, for sure! Say which designs you want for your children’s face painting if you’re having a birthday or Halloween party - Taskers can have dozens of designs ready for you to pick! If you want adult face painting for your corporate event, you can share colour samples with your Tasker; then, they can create the design you wish to with your corporate colours. You can also book party helpers should you need extra hands.

Your Tasker can do face painting for a few hours during the event or stay for as long as your event takes. As for the application, this can take as little as 5 minutes for each person. Some designs can take longer, especially if the design is for the entire face and isn’t confined to the eye areas, the forehead or one side of the face. 

Apart from your imagination, the essential tools for face painting are water-based face paints, brushes and sponges. Clean water is also necessary to mix paints, clean brushes and wash faces before and after application. You can also include accessories like glitter, sequins or small art materials to use as design enhancements. We recommend hiring a Tasker who can combine all these elements and create amazing face painting designs for your occasion.  

Suggested reads about Face Painting

What do face painting services include?

Face painting services include all the activities necessary to make a special event more festive by painting the faces of those celebrating or partaking in your special event. This can be a birthday party, wedding, Halloween party, office family day, corporate event, fundraiser or another occasion. 

This can include discussing the theme and appropriate face painting colours and designs, planning and setting up the area for face painting and implementing the designs on your event participants’ faces.  

Planning & choosing designs

Your Tasker can do face painting for a birthday party, work as a Halloween face painter or work as your face painter for a company event. Your Tasker can show you a selection of designs they have used and prepared for similar events in the past. As part of their preparations, you can also request unique designs you want for your guests.  

If you want them to do face painting for kids, you may request designs like your kid’s favourite animals, mythical beasts or popular superheroes. Are you hiring a local adult face painting Tasker for a corporate event? Go ahead and ask for that special design with your company’s colours or even your logo. And you can book Taskers to print customized company shirts as well.  

Preparing materials

After you’ve both agreed on the colours and face paint designs, your Tasker can get the appropriate paints and materials in the right amounts. Be sure to give your Tasker the exact number of guests or participants so they can get enough paint and painting supplies for your event.  

Setting up the face painting area

A few hours before your event begins, your Tasker can arrive at the venue to prepare their station. If this is for a corporate or charity event, you may need someone to make sure your hired face painter and other performers get the space they need and access the venue. 

Your Tasker can prepare the face painting area and ensure that anyone having their face painted is comfortably seated. If you have many guests, you can hire someone to assist and help them line up to get their faces painted. Why not hire someone to snap photos of your guests in their face paint, so they have a memento of the occasion? 

Applying the face paint

Once your Tasker is ready and the event is in motion, they can do the face painting on your guests. They can have your guests choose the design they want, apply the designs and give them time to dry. Your Tasker can work on as many guests as contracted and use fresh designs or touch up the designs for the duration of your event.
