FAQs - what would you like to ask Tiger Face Painting?
Q: Do I need to pay a deposit?
A: Yes please - an agreed deposit to my paypal account firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What sort of face paint do you use?
A: I use professional quality paints - leading brands such as Grimas, Diamond FX, Paradise etc.
Q: What about allergic reactions to paints?
A: Leading brands are made to strict cosmetic standards, and adverse reactions are rare. As with all cosmetic products, some people are sensitive to some ingredients. It is the party organiser's and also the individual parent/guardians's responsibility to advise if they do not wish to have their children's faces painted.
Q: How do I remove face paint from skin?
A: Soap (or try baby shampoo) and warm water on an old flannel. As the paint is water based, it needs to be removed with water. Oily or cream based removers tend to seal the colour onto the skin.
Q: How do I remove face paint from clothes?
A: Upon arrival home, use stain remover before washing normally.
Q: When does a facepainter need to say 'no'?
- Paints and glitter tattoos are not recommended for children under three years old.
- If the child (or adult) has any serious food allergies or allergic reactions to soaps, skin creams, etc.
- If the child (or adult) has any open cuts or sores, any cold sores or any other infectious skin condition, or appears to have conjunctivitis or other contagious disease such as chicken pox.
Q: Can I see details of your public liability insurance?
A: I always have my insurance documents with me on each job for customers to see should they wish. I am covered for £1m.
Q: When does your CRB clearance expire?
12 June 2018.
Q: Does face painting work alongside other children's entertainment?
Yes - I can give each child a painted number on the back of their hand so that they don't have to queue and miss anything else!
