FAQs

How do I get a quote for my event?

You can call us, email us or fill in the contact form here. We will get back to you as soon as we can, confirming our availability and your quote.

How do I book you?

You can call us, email us or fill in the contact form here. We will get back to you as soon as we can confirming our availability. We will then send you out a confirmation email, along with an invoice and insurance documentation. In order to secure the date of your event you will need to transfer the deposit amount via the bank. Your date is then booked! We will email you a few days before just to confirm our attendance and clarify any questions you may have.

Do I need to pay any money before the event?

We require a non-refundable deposit to be paid in order to secure the date of your event. This is normally between 30%-50% of the balance. This is then taken off your remaining balance for the event.

An example would be: a party for 2 hours is £80. You would pay a £30 deposit via bank transfer, and the other £50 will be due in cash on the day of the event.

What do you charge?

A 2 hour party with 20-30 people is between £70 and £80. We charge around £35-£40 an hour thereafter, but often discount this for larger full day events.

We do also offer a service where we can attend your event and charge the public. Each design or glitter tattoo is £3. In order to choose this option we do require an established event with a large footfall. Feel free to contact us with your requirements.

What services do you provide?

We can face paint, glitter tattoo, add festival and chunky glitter, UV paint, install sparkle hair strands and also have a balloon modelling option as an add on.

How many people can you paint/glitter tattoo in an hour?

This varies depending on the design and size of the glitter tattoo, but we aim to do 10-15 people per hour. We like to make sure the person is comfortable and they do not feel rushed. We are also happy to sit with children that may be slightly anxious about being painted and show them the paints and glitters and what we do. Often Mum will have a little flower painted on to her hand, before the child makes the decision to go ahead with being painted.

How do I remove face paint and glitter tattoos?

Face paint and festival glitter can be removed by using warm water and mild soap. Softly rub the area with a flannel or sponge until the paint is removed.

Glitter tattoos last up to a week, but if you need to remove them before you can use baby oil or coconut oil on a cotton wall ball to loosen the glue and remove the tattoo.

Do you work at events that are outdoors?

 We are happy to work at events that are outdoors, but as we do not currently have a tent or gazebo we will need the event organiser to provide this for us.

Will you travel outside of Staffordshire?

The majority of our parties are in Staffordshire, but we do also travel to Birmingham, Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas for events. We are also happy to travel to larger festivals throughout the country. The areas we cover are: Rugeley, Stafford, Lichfield, Stoke-On-Trent, Cannock, Hednesford, Walsall, Wolverhampton, West Bromich and Birmingham.

What paint and glitter products do you use?

We use a variety of face paint brands including, but not limited to: Global colours, Diamond fx, Tag, Silly farm, Kryvaline and Superstar. All of the colours we use are FDA approved and safe to use. The majority of neon colours we use are safe for cosmetic use, but have not been fully approved to use against the face. Face painters have been using these with no ill effects, but if you would prefer we did not use neon paint, please let us know before your event.

Note, certain brands of paint that we use are vegan, if you’d like us to use only  vegan paints then please do let us know prior to the event.

In regard to glitters, all these are safe for cosmetic use on skin, hair and the face. Please note chunky glitters are not suitable for young children. We currently use both a mixture of normal and bio glitter. If you have a specific request for biodegradable glitter please let us know. 

We also use damp kitchen towel in our kit instead of baby wipes as we try to help the Earth where we can.
