Fantasy Faces
Professional Face Painting
Code of Practice


The artists of Fantasy Faces will not paint anyone who, in the​​ opinion of the artist, appears to be suffering from cold or flu symptoms, a cold sore, conjunctivitis or any other infectious skin complaint. Similarly, eczema, open cuts and grazes are not suitable surfaces to paint. In these cases, a design on the cheek, hand or arm may be possible.

​​Face paint in not recommended for children under 2 years of age.

If a child is reluctant to have his or her face painted, the artist WILL NOT comply with the wishes of the parent or caregiver over the desire of the child. Young children do not always understand face painting. Someone they do not know is doing something to them, which they cannot see. Therefore, a small design on the hand may be more enjoyable for them. They can see what is being done​​, feel in control of the situation, and can look at it and enjoy it for the rest of the day.

We will not paint signs, symbols or other designs which are in any way racially or religiously offensive, or of a sexual nature. We reserve the right to refuse to paint anyone who is abusive, violent, or intoxicated.​​
All materials used have been designed for professional use, are hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, and comply with US cosmetic regulations. This does not preclude an allergic reaction, however, so if your child has very sensitive skin, or is allergic to a range of common products, please do discuss this before the child is painted. It is always possible to carry out a patch test, or to paint a small design on the hand (where the skin is less sensitive) to be on the safe side.
