How many faces can a face painter do per hour?

Face Painters aim to accomplish 15-20 completed faces per hour. Face painting varies in complexity and can allow a single person with a very elaborate painting or up to 60 with only nose and whiskers painted. Counter-intuitively, the full-face designs are sometimes much quicker than the more detailed cheek art designs.

If we have an accurate estimate of how many guests will be at your event, we can put together a package that is appropriate for you and your guests

Do face painters twist balloons too?

Fun Eye Swirl Face Paint from Miss Kara at one of her events in Tampa
Though some face painters can twist balloons or other types of entertainment, most clients get a bigger bang for their buck by focusing on a highly skilled professional that masters a single type of entertainment. A face painter cannot paint faces and twist balloons at the same time. If both are needed, it is suggested to hire two separate entertainers.

For instance, if you are hiring a face painter for one hour and a balloon artist for one hour, it ends up being the same price as having a single person for two hours. The only difference is that the single person is losing as much as 30 minutes switching out supplies during the event. This takes away from your guests receiving a painted face or a balloon. Often the quality of work must lower drastically so that everyone is reached in time.

Another unfortunate side effect is that most dual entertainers have a specialty. So, you may have one type of entertainment be awesome and the other be less so

How Much is a Face Painter?

Rates vary slightly based on location, date, and time. Most professional face painters have rates starting at $125/hour and more advanced face painters with longer lists of credentials can be closer to $200/hour. There are many hobbyists and beginners available in the $50 – $100 price range as well. As there is an often-significant setup time, some artists request a two-hour minimum.

YTE Events and Balloon Decor provides face painters at $125/hour and most request a two-hour minimum. For a full list of prices with our most requested entertainment options, fill out our event request form and our office will email you a document with most pricing questions answered.

Can a Face Painter match my theme?

Face painters love to match themes for events. A custom menu board is not uncommon, especially for a corporate event, sports team, or a themed birthday party. Just make sure that the face painter knows ahead of time about your theme and your request for a custom menu. Many companies can accommodate with enough notice.

We have a few face painters on our team that absolutely LOVE to make custom face painting menu boards for events. So, whether it is a Star Wars theme, a princess gathering, or a bunch of superheroes… We would love to help add some themed face paint options for you. That said, many party hosts enjoy the flexibility of an artist being able to paint nearly anything the child requests.

Do you offer special rates for non-profits and fundraisers?

We occasionally offer discounted rates for organizations, depending on our availability and the time of the event. We can rarely offer them on Saturdays though, since that is when we are in highest demand. Each year, we select a few like-minded organizations that have hired us in the past to receive free or discounted services throughout the year.

If you would like to be considered, please contact our main office. You can do so via phone or contact form.

Do your Face Painters travel?

We certainly do! In most cases, we are not traveling that far. We have high quality face painters based all over Central Florida. Feel free to look over our most common service areas if you have any questions about ability to provide a face painter for your event.

Are “non-toxic” paints safe for Face Painting?

Just because something says it is non-toxic does not mean that it is safe for face painting. Many paints that are safe to ingest in small quantities are not safe for the skin and may cause rashes or irritations. Children’s skin is often more sensitive to irritants and there may be a negative reaction. Especially negative would be acrylic paint, which should not be used on the skin.

What face paints are safe for the skin?

Professional grade face and body art paints are best. Typically water-based, there are also alcohol based and latex body paint. Latex paint is typically avoided due to latex allergies and water-based is the most common type of paint used. Either way, you want to focus on non-toxic, FDA approved, hypoallergenic face paints made specifically for face painting. The best face paints are made similarly to makeup

Do Face Paints Stain Clothes?

Most professional water-based paints will easily come out of clothes with soapy water. Because of the high pigment content, some colors may stain certain fabrics. Here are a few tips on how to remove a face painting stain from clothing:

5. Wet the stained area of clothing
6. Rub vegetable oil / glycerin soap into it
7. Stretch the area tight and run under fast flowing cold water
8. Once the stain is gone, you can wash as normal
