Who I will and will not paint
It is a delight to paint children who are happy and want to have a face paint session!
Children who have lovely clean faces.
Children who try really hard to sit still while they are face painted.
Children up to the age of 16 who have a responsible adult with them who give their permission to allow face painting.
Adults who dare to be brave!
The following disorders and conditions will restrict make-up application, therefore we may or may not be able to work on anyone with the following:
- Recent Chicken Pox
- Heavy Colds
- Eczema and Dermatitis
- Recent Bruising
- Children unable to sit still
- Lanolin Intolerance
- Nervous Disposition
We do not paint anyone who has a contagious illness, or who has open sores or wounds. Even acne should be avoided, as the necessary rubbing to remove the paint can also cause irritation to the sensitized skin. In cases like this, we suggest painting another area, such as the arm.
If you suspect that your skin is sensitive skin you could test the paint on the inside of your wrist before we begin. If there is no reaction after a few minutes will be safe to proceed.
