Frequently Asked Questions

Set-up Requirements & Planning for Weather

If your event is outdoors we highly recommend having a back up plan in case of rain or extreme heat. The sun and rain can permanently damage our face paints, balloons, and henna supplies and no one enjoys providing, or receiving, body art in inclement weather.

On sunny days the artist must be in the shade through the duration of the event. Kids need to look upwards in order to be painted. If it’s sunny out they often either tear up or they refuse to lift their heads which makes painting them nearly impossible.

On rainy days the artist must be under a canopy or similar structure.

If your event is indoors the artist must be in a very well-lit area.

Each artist will need a table (approx 4×4 feet of space) and 2 chairs. If your event is in a park a park bench and picnic table will be fine.  

Airbrush art requires electrical outlets.

Giant bubbles require outdoor, low-wind areas.

Artist Attire

When you book with us you can choose whether you would like your artists to dress in a fun, clean cut, or casual outfit. Our artists do not dress as characters, but we are often happy to wear specific colors or accessories that will fit with your party theme. If you have any special requests feel free to let us know and we will do our best to accommodate 🙂

What kind of designs do you offer?

Our artists offer a wide variety of designs perfect for girls, boys, and different age groups. We are also able to take custom requests and can work with almost any theme that you may have in mind! Examples of our work can be found on our Photo Gallery page.

Do you have a minimum amount of time?

We have a 2 hour minimum for all party packages

Can I extend my reservation the day of the event if more guests arrive then anticipated?

It is possible to extend your reservation time the day of subject to availability although it is not guaranteed. Regular rates apply, we pro-rate in 30 minute increments.

What are your rates?

Our rate structure is hourly and it varies based on the entertainer, the city you’re in, and the length of time you want to book. The prices we give you are the bottom line – there is no sales tax or other “hidden” costs. To get a customized rate-quote, fill out our rate request form and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can!

How far in advance do I need to book a party?

As soon as possible! We work on a first come, first served basis and are often booked out months in advance. However, if your event is happening soon we may still be able to accommodate your request, especially if your start time is flexible.

What's the best way to contact you with additional questions?

The best way to reach us is by filling out our quote form or by sending us an email at info@pacificfacepainters.com. We try to respond within 24 hours, but we are generally a little quicker at returning emails than phone calls. Messages received on the weekend are generally returned Monday morning.
