Non Airbrush Hand Painted Faces

  Owner and Lead Artist: Naomi Smith has won many international awards for her hand painted faces.  Our high quality water based makeup allows us to create powerful head turning faces with the great metallic and day glow colors we have.

  People love to watch the process of a hand painted face coming to life, so hiring a non-airbrush face painter for  your event has great entertainment value. Sometimes hand face painting is a better fit for your party or event than airbrush face painting.  

 For non-airbrush face painting we use very soft cosmetic sponges and brushes, the feel is very relaxing and comforting.  This makes it a great choice for young children of 6 and under.  Don’t worry if you happen to fall asleep, we will gently wake you up once your face is transformed. If it is a kid’s first time getting painted or if they are very shy or sensitive, our staff has wonderful methods to make them feel comfortable with the process.

 We always want our face painting to be a happy memory for anyone who takes a turn in our chair.  So, we are very sensitive to you and your children’s needs.  If your child has sensitive skin or allergies to products, we are happy to do a test spot on your child to see if they may have a problem with our high quality and gentle products that are made for children’s skin.

 Usually if your child has had a reaction to having their face painted, it is because an amateur painter was not using the right products for face painting or their face paints may have become contaminated. The chances of a child having a reaction to our gentle and safe products is highly unlikely but we always want to make sure if your child has had a problem in the past.

  By implementing humorous and distracting techniques, we are experts at getting just about any child to want their face painted.  If in some very rare cases, a young child just does not want their face painted, then we will offer something on their arm, if they still don’t their arm painted, then we give them a stick on tattoo that a parent can put on them later. We never want a child to have a bad experience and for this reason we will never force a child to get painted nor will we paint sleeping babies or anyone under 24 months of age.
  Airbrush face painting vs. hand painted faces are two completely different ways of painting faces.  Both have their place for events.

 Where the airbrush face art can be water resistant, the hand painted faces are not water resistant. Hand painted faces tend to take more time per guest and there is not as many options available for smaller cheek art designs. Hand painted cheek art can become quite time intensive and if that is what you are considering for your event, we suggest the airbrush face painting. 

  We are happy to discuss with you your event details to help you choose what is best for your expected patrons or party goers.
