Please make sure that you read this before booking a face painter. A copy will be sent by email when you confirm your booking along with a copy of my public liability insurance certificate. 

Important information

Your booking is not confirmed until a deposit has been paid by Paypal or BACS if this constitutes part of the booking agreement that you have made. 


Full payment of the balance must be made before the day of the event or in cash when your artist arrives and before they begin.


You must confirm that you have read and understand all of the following and will take full responsibility for the behaviour of your guests for the duration of your event.


Please  contact me if you do not understand or agree to any of the following:


DISCLAIMER - PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE. It keeps me or your artist compliant and you and your guests safe.



You / your child's face needs to be CLEAN and DRY .

Please wipe noses & mouths thoroughly before being seated for painting/ glitter.


Anyone who appears to be suffering from: open wounds, cold sores, chicken pox, measles, mumps, runny noses, conjunctivitis, infectious skin conditions, eczema or appear unwell will not be painted.


Children (and their actions) remain the responsibility of the party hosts/ organisers or their parents or guardians at all times


If the event/ party is busy, a responsible adult may be required to supervise the line.


Children/ adults may not touch any of the artist’s equipment or paints. Please ensure that parents/ guests understand this. 


Please ensure that a well-lit, sheltered area  is provided for facepainting.  There must be adequate cover from both sun and rain. 



There must be enough space for all guests to stand clear of the chairs and equipment until it is their turn to be painted.  If you are having a disco, please remember that the lighting and noise level may not be suitable for facepainting. 


It is very difficult to face paint with cold hands, please think about this and provide an area which is warm enough.  There is no finite minimum temperature. Please discuss with your artist on the day to ensure that they are able to work comfortably if the temperature where they are required to be situated is either very hot or cold.


Something small may be painted on the hand or arm of children between 2 and 3 years of age at your artist's discretion. Please trust tyour artist's judgement and experience. Sometimes parents are keener than their children. If the artist feels that a child is unhappy or not enjoying the experience, they WILL stop immediately. Please understand that for ethical reasons, this is very important! Face painting should be a fun experience…….



All artists representing me use products designed for professional use which comply with EU cosmetic regulations. As with any cosmetics, some people may be sensitive to any/all of the ingredients. Sunny-faces will not be held liable in the event of any reaction. Your artist can conduct a patch test 30 minutes before painting if you are concerned. For this reason, children between the age of 2-3 years may only have a very small design on their arm. 


TO REMOVE Face paint and glitter - please use your normal brand of soap & warm water  


Depending on skin type, some colours may linger on the skin (mainly turquoise, black and green)


ANY concerns regarding a possible reaction to face paints? Please discuss with your artist BEFORE queuing/being painted. Your artist  will not paint if the child appears to have any type of skin sensitivity.


Intoxicated guests – Your artist has the right to refuse to paint anyone who is being offensive or making crude remarks.  If a guest appears to be intoxicated, facxe paint or glitter may be declined. This decision will be based on the guest’s ability to communicate effectively and to sit or stand still enough for paint or glitter to be applied.  Refusal to paint a guest should in no way be considered a value judgement and will be handled discreetly and sensitively by your artist.


Your artist will be as careful as possible when painting, however, they and sunny-faces accept no responsibility if face paint/ glitter is transferred onto surfaces, inflatable’s, clothing, carpets or vehicle interiors.



Thanks for reading this in it's entirety. Please confirm when you book that you have read and agree to all of the terms herein and that your guests will be advised and supervised accordingly.
