Face Painting Disclaimer

 

 

  • We follow a strict code of practise regarding hygiene.  We use a clean sponge for each person and brushes are cleaned regularly throughout each event.  All equipment is cleaned thoroughly after each event.
  • To ensure that health and hygiene standards are maintained, we ask that our products remain untouched by anyone other than myself.  Please ensure that children are supervised at all times.
  • All products used are water based, and tested for use on the skin.  They comply with FDA and EU regulations.  However, please note that all cosmetics can, on rare occasions, cause allergic reactions and we accept no liability for this. 
  • If the person to be painted has not been painted before or has sensitive skin, it is possible that face painting may cause irritation.  Please therefore ask for a patch test.  If there is no reaction after 15 minutes, the person may be painted.    It is your responsibility to advise us of any sensitivity prior to painting and we accept no liability for irritation caused.
  •  We will paint at the artists' discretion the face of children who in the artists opinion are under 3 years of age, or unlikely to sit to be painted.  However, in these cases the arm or hand may be painted upon request. WE DO NOT PAINT CHILDREN UNDER 2 YEARS OLD.
  • At private events/parties, it is the responsibility of the organiser to ensure that the permission of parents/guardians is obtained prior to children being painted.
  • We reserve the right to refuse to paint the face of any person who appears unwell or with medical conditions such as, but not limited to, cold sores, psoriasis, open wounds, broken skin, conjunctivitis or other eye infections, runny nose, infected skin, head lice.  In these circumstances we are able to paint, at the artists' discretion, the arm or hand of that person. 
  • We take no responsibility for the welfare or safety of persons waiting to be painted.  Please ensure that children waiting to be painted are supervised at all times.   
  • Face paints are easily removed with soap and water.  Baby wipes are not recommended as these may cause allergic reactions when used on the face.
  • Some paints may leave a slight tint on the skin which should fade in a day or so. 
  • All paints used are water-based and as such should not stain clothing.  However, we will not be held liable for any damage to clothing or property.  Should this occur please cold soak the item prior to washing.
