Please make sure you read this before booking a face painter....

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 do contact Sunny Montague if you do not understand or agree to any of the following:


DISCLAIMER - PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE. It keeps 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.


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


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, your artist will require a responsible adult to supervise the line.


Children/ adults may not touch any of the artist’s equipment or paints. Please ensure that parents/ guests understand this. Should it happen, your artist will stop painting until the behaviour desists. 


Please ensure that your artist is able to work in a well-lit, sheltered area  with enough space for all guests to stand clear of the chairs and equipment until it is their turn to be painted. You may wish to consider where your artist will be working if you have a disco/ children’s entertainer booked for your party.


Your artist must be provided with a working area which is dry and warm enough to allow the use of hands without gloves.  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.


Your artist will paint something small on the hand or arm of children between 2 and 3 years of age at their discretion. Please trust their 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 of the face paints artists use have been designed for professional use and 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 cheek or arm. Your artist will not paint full face or anything close to the eyes.


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 the artist considers a guest to be too intoxicated to be painted, they will refuse to do so. 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. This will be a pragmatic decision based on experience and with the reasonable expectation that your guests may be consuming alchohol. 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 advise Sunny Montague that you have read and agree to all of the terms herein and that your guests will be advised and supervised accordingly.
