YES. I KNOW THIS IS AN EVENT ENTERTAINMENT SITE...Yet it seems these days you can't look at anything that isn't advertising something. This isn't an advertisement...this is a Face Painter doing whatever I can to help kids go to ARROW-HEART and to help Moms and kids through the year around services ofWEAVE. And if all of you would spread the word on your social media about these organizations...maybe we can change lives together!

This is my old Batman design. I have some others I do now that I like even better and an AWESOME Batman Photo Opportunity Board that even the girls/ladies like. I also do a pink or purple Batgirl too that is popular.
These great kids all wanted mustaches. It often catches on & girls even get them ... sometimes traditional colors, sometimes the girls get pink or purple mustaches with glitter! Makes the line move fast with huge crowds! I paint at events where THOUSANDS SHOW UP and my clients keep hiring me for those big events because I'm a CROWD PLEASER!
Many more photos on the Review page and I can text you any 2015-16 photos I haven't figured out how to post on here yet. .
I CAN TEXT YOU NEW PHOTOS & PHOTOS OF THE PHOTO OPPORTUNITY BOARDS which the kids/adults LOVE!
He created this concept. He wanted his face to be the snake's head, so I did the body down his neck.
Picture doesn't do it justice. He and all the people at the party LOVED THIS DESIGN!

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE!
I am insured and used only FDA approved face paints & body glues for the application of the gems. However, the Entertainment Industry is not regulated in California yet so hopefully you will use this as a BUYER BEWARE NOTICE!
In my 26 years of painting I have NEVER HAD ONE CLIENT QUESTION MY PRODUCTS. I imagine they all assume painters are all on the same page, using the same standards. A few years ago I started meeting monthly with a group of professionals who take the time to meet all year so we can keep up with industry news, the latest and greatest products and the latest techniques. I consider this group the area's ELITE ENTERTAINMENT GROUP! I have now hired many of them to entertain my clients. I respect them and trust them. They show up on time, they use the safest products and best of all they love kids and TRULY WANT TO ENTERTAIN!
However, one of the things they shared was that I found out that many painters out there use all kinds of products...inferior face paints and even ACRYLICS on kids' sensitive skin. Sometimes there are no problems, other times, it causes redness and skin irritations. The same with the glue. We use FDA approved body glue. It is VERY EXPENSIVE! However, I've used it a long time and never have any complaints. Others I hear sometimes use glue from stores where products cost a dollar...which also can create redness and skin irritations. Those glues are not made for skin of any type...kids or adults!
MY RECCOMENDATION TO KEEP PARTIES FUN & SAFE:
You can hire me or any of the friends I personally recommend, or you can ask your painters what they use. Products like GLOBAL, TAG, WOLFE and MEHRON are what we use and I've never heard of anyone ever having an issue with these professional FDA approved paints. If you have questions about a brand, look on line and check them out. I'd rather you be safe than sorry..it's a quick check and worthwhile!
PLEASE EXCUSE THE GAP!

ADULTS ARE ADDICTED, TOO!

I have other extremely talented face painters to join me if you have a large event with hundreds or thousands of people. And I have access to other TYPES OF ENTERTAINMENT, from balloon twisters, magicians, clowns & so much more! I also can set up a "Kids Play Station" for your event, custom designed for your needs with face painters, balloon twisters, bean bag tosses, crafts, etc.!!! We are your one stop event planner!
The photos are all original art except the glitter cat. The glitter cat is one of MANY stencil designs I have which can be used with any color glitter. This cat is 3 days old, and I actually put my garden gloves over this little kitty everyday, I still kept the image. Yet when I washed the kitty off on day 4, it came off easily. When I use body glue for pearls and rhinestones, you might what to use rubbing alcohol to remove the gems. Also some paints come off easier with baby oil or make-up remover.
There are two different beach murals on this page, one quick sign I did for a social club (the fortune teller), and a sugar skull mask. I can customize sugar masks in all colors and add "jewels" and they are beautiful! As you see on the butterfly, I can add jewels to the face painting which enhances so many of my designs, including the full or partial face masks and "tiaras" painted on little girls' foreheads. Because I have SEVERAL big binders with THOUSANDS of designs -- kids LOVE looking at all of their options! I also will do any custom design, the designs are only limited by our own imaginations. The kids AMAZE me with their requests! They are creative, appreciate and often understand color and they blow me away with the designs they dream up! They range from original, beautiful, cute, funny, scary...you name it!
I use top quality FDA approved face paints, I charge a very affordable rate of $75 an hour with a 2 hour minimum. After 2 hr. there could be a discount for additonal time if I don't have another event that day. (Note upcoming price increase.) If the event site is too far from Citrus Heights, there could also be reasonable gas and time charges, which will be discussed at the time of booking. Occasionally, there are higher rates for holidays, such as Halloween. THERE ARE SPECIAL RATES FOR MULTIPLE BOOKINGS AVAILABLE. I'm pretty confident these are the BEST RATES available, though the design choices are endless! I do have to charge a little extra for the stencil glitter designs which last up to 4 days as the glue, glitter & stencils are so expensive. There are some awesome face painters in town that I truly applaud. Yet you will probably see many local face painters charge $125-$150 per hour with a 2 hour minimum, often only offering stencil designs (not the 4 day stencils) or 10 hand painted designs (often with no glitter or "jewels") and many charge $80 or more for any portion of an hour after their 2 hour minimum. I am not knocking them! They are reasonable and justified in charging those amounts if they are good face painters using top quality supplies. I just chose to be more affordable.
I try to have all the popular characters (cartoons, super heroes, etc.) and much more in my DESIGN BINDERS, but just in case, please let me know if you have a special request prior to the party to be certain I have copies of the characters you desire to make your event UNFORGETTABLE! So whether you want a head to toe Spiderman on your face or arm or you want a full face Spiderman...I can deliver!

If you don't have an event, but you want to have a party at your home, or you need an attention getting event at your business...call me...we can work together to create an event I promise will be memorable!
Businesses often hire me when they either want to show their family customers appreciation and/or for business building. They hire me for "FACE PAINT FRIDAYS" for example. We put up lawn signs, mention the date and times on Face Book their web sites and on my website and other social media choices. They put signs in their businesses & let their staff invite families to the days chosen for the face paint event. Businesses pick a price...for example, a Farmers' Market might tell their customers, for every $3 they spend at the booths, they get one child painted. Customers are so happy! The Mom's are happy, the kids are ecstatic and they are encouraged to come back the next Friday...perhaps they get a Spider Man Design the first visit, Batman the 2nd Friday, and so on. It only takes 1 or 2 families that come back the next Friday to pay for my fees, and all of the other families that come back are pure profit to the business! It is a great way to keep families coming back weekly to do business with the vendors and to have fun! So my services will be creating income and growth to your business instead of costing you money! The initial cost is very minimal, yet if you have several families returning each week, you will be making a lot more money and the good will you show to the parents and the children is PRICELESS! Make your establishment the obvious choice each week for families to have a great time! My fees are actually lowered when I have multiple bookings with the same vendor. ALSO, vendors can get their neighbors to chip in for my fees. So 3 stores might hire me and then each store is only paying $25 an hour!
I paint for "RUNNIN' FOR RHETT" each November, painted many years at the THE "ICE CREAM SAFARI"at the Sacramento Zoo, at local school events, for radio stations, etc., etc. I bring 21 colors of the fine glitter, rhinestones, pearls and bring stickers for the little babies who might not want to sit for a painting, and for all of the kids to pick for free while they wait, etc. My goal is for EVERYONE to remember your event and to have awesome designs to enjoy! Call today to insure I will be available for to make YOUR UNFORGETTABLE!
I can also paint sandwich boards to make bean bag toss games, or other games to add more fun for your event, with designs customized to your event. If interested, in games please request at time of booking.
