Terms & Conditions


Booking confirmation will be sent via email or Facebook messaging.  To secure your date and time a non-refundable deposit of £10 will be requested; please note that I am unable to accept cheques as form of payment.  Prices and information are subject to change.

Face Painting Materials

I only use professional water based face paints which are fully compliant with EU and FDA toy and cosmetic regulations.  These paints are hypoallergenic and include anti-bacterial properties which are specifically for use on the face and skin.  Paint can easily be removed using mild soap and water.  Some skin types are prone to some very mild initial staining – a small amount of mild baby shampoo will remove this gently.

My water is changed regularly during a booking and clean sponges are used for each face.  All my equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each booking.

Terms and Conditions

I have your children’s safety and interests in mind at all times and as a result I reserve the right not to paint under certain conditions such as the following:-

I am unable to paint faces of anyone under 3 years of age. The face paint manufacturers do not recommend paint for anyone below this age and very young children can sometimes be overwhelmed by the results.  I am more than happy to paint a small design on hands or arms of children younger than 3 years of age but this will be at the discretion of myself.

Anyone who is obviously unwell (runny nose/temperature/rash) or any other visible skin complaint (eczema; chicken pox; acne; cold sore; open wounds; eye infections etc) I won’t be able to paint.

Children who are not wanting to be painted against their wishes will not be pushed to have their faces done or design completed; this may result in stopping painting before the final result if a child becomes uncomfortable or changes their mind.  Please do not force your child to be painted if they really are uneasy or unwilling – face painting should be an enjoyable experience for both the child and parent.

Children must be under constant adult supervision whilst being painted or waiting their turn.

If you believe the person to be painted has sensitive skin, a skin patch test can be carried out. It is the guardian’s responsibility to inform me of this in advance if this is the case.  I of ThatFacepainter can not be held liable for any allergic reaction to the paint.

If you are making a booking for a children’s party, please ensure all parents are aware in advance that a face painter will be on site, especially when parents/guardians are unlikely to be present.  It is imperative of the host that this is carried out to ensure that all parents/guardians have been informed and that any comments are relayed back of any reactions.

Ideally if I’m able to start my first face as soon as the agreed start time, the better.  As it could be that I’ll have another booking that day where I’ll need to be ready for.  However, in the event where I’m late to start with this kind of scenario I’ll have to start charging for my time the first  5 to 10 minutes is understandable;  but for each half hour that I’m late to start painting there is a £20 charge; please note that I am unable to accept cheques as form of payment.

Without prejudice I reserve the right not to paint any persons I feel should not be painted.

By agreeing to a booking and having me paint for you, it is to my understanding and yours that you agree to the above Terms and Conditions.
