Face Painters in Toronto and the GTA are actually quite easy to come across (there are a ton of us lol), it's just a matter of finding the right fit for you and your guests.
When booking a Face Painter for your party or event, it’s important to have an idea of:
How many children you are expecting
The length of time needed to get everyone's face painted (our simple face paint designs take 5-7 minutes per child, which allows us to move through your line pretty quickly (freeing up time for other activities like balloon animals and glitter tattoos)
Other activities you have planned (eg. face painting doesn't mix well with pool/swimming parties)
Why book a Face Painter:
Kids LOVE it
Looks great in photos
Kids LOVE it... lol
Keep in mind:
Face Painting is time consuming (we recommend having other activities available for the children check out our blog posts here with some suggestions)
Children under age 4 sometimes struggle to sit still (many prefer a tattoo on the hand instead, which is a great introduction to face painting.. baby steps, right?)
If children are sweating, Face Paint can smudge (we recommend doing any active games or swimming BEFORE face painting begins)
Remember, with our custom packages you can mix and match Face Painting with Balloon Animals and Glitter Tattoos at no added cost

Q: I don't need the full two hours, can I book only one?
A: Our minimum booking time is 2 hours - you'd be surprised how busy the kids keep us (lol). If your entertainer finishes early, they will continue "a la carte" service for children to get more balloons, tattoos, and added face paint. Alternatively, if you let us know ahead of time, they can arrive early to help set up, or assist with cake/clean up :)
Q: Do you offer discounts for non-profits and charities?
A: Yup, each year we choose 10 community/charitable organizations to work with, please reach out in advance!
Q: Do I have to tip the entertainer?
A: Please don't feel obligated to tip your entertainer, we pride ourselves on paying staff VERY fairly. With that being said, if you would like to tip your entertainer, that is completely fine
Q: What do the entertainers wear?
A: Our entertainers wear a black company t shirt with out logo in white, along with activewear bottoms. If you have a formal event, please let us know in advance so that we can wear all black business casual
Q: Can I request a preferred gender for my entertainer?
A: For sure! On our booking form, there is a space for this. Most of our staff are women and we are quite limited when it comes to male staff
Q: Do I have to pay a deposit?
A: Yes, a $100 deposit is required upon confirmation of booking. We will send you an invoice OR you can e-transfer (whatever works best for you)
Q: Is there any tax?
A: Yes, there is tax through all online payments (including deposit). However, if you pay the remaining balance to your entertainer in cash, exact cash is fine
Q: When/how do I pay the entertainer?
A: You can pay your entertainer AFTER the service. Most clients have the payment tucked in a discreet envelope to hand to the entertainer on their way out. Please be sure to double check the counting. If you are paying the balance online, you can complete the payment once the entertainer wraps up.
