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!

BUSINESS BUILDERS!
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.

BABY ANNOUNCEMENTS & Christmas Lawn Decor.......All Sizes & Designs, All FROZEN Characters OR ANY OTHER CHARACTERS on thick plywood. House paint lasts 10 years+.

After I finished painting, I asked this awesome leopard to ROAR!  SO FIERCE!


This uncle sat back & watched the kids for 2 hrs, then jumped in with picture of a "racoon". I painted it exactly like picture, but to me racoons have ore of an almond shaped eye, so it's more of a wolf to e! He was thrilled. Looked wild when he closed his eyelids!

Also, this is a "MiniMural"...

3'x 2'     I just painted.

SAINT PATRICK'S DAY Designs Available

GLITTER TATTOOS...

come in many styles & colors. This cat is 3 days old!




The images BELOW  were copied from the internet.All other paintings on this website were painted by me, so clearly you can I see I am CAPABLE of doing the same work.  The big difference is, these were likely MODELS, adults & children who are not squirmlng around at a party or fair while their family and friends are talking to them and some even have costumes to add a lot to their designs. One of these days when I have the time I will replace these photos with my own paintings of these same designs because I want clients to only see what I can do when they are considering hiring me for their event.  Again if you look at my Betty Boop, Dopey, Maleficient, etc. I'm sure you will have confidence in my abilities. I just liked these particular designs enough that I wanted my clients to be able to have these to chose from when I painted them or their children.  If you have any special designs or characters and you want to be assured that I can paint them PRIOR TO YOUR EVENT...i INVITE YOU TO CALL ME, SHOW ME OR TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT...i'LL PAINT THAT IMAGE ON MY ARM & TEXT IT TO YOU SO YOU CAN BE ASSURED i AM CAPABLE OF PROVIDING THE QUALITY OF WORK YOU DESIRE!

Because I have so many years experience, I often can paint most of the kids. At times because the little ones touch their faces so much, the designs will get wiped off.  If I think that will happen, sometimes I offer to paint their arms or the back of their hand. This also helps because they can watch me paint which often makes it a lot easier for them. 

Dana has worked at our race (Run Because You Can) in Sacramento, CA for the last few years. She is always very friendly and does a great job face painting.  Dana will not leave the park until every child in line gets their turn.  Our event will end but she is willing to stay later to finish her precious customers.  There have only been compliments about her artwork.

(RUNNIN' FOR RHETT) Nov 2014

Dana's face painting was wonderful. All the children were given the opportunity to select their own designs which gave them a very rich experience.  Dana stayed until all the children had their face or arm painted even after the other vendors had left.  Those children who participated really enjoyed their experience with Dana.  I would highly recommend Dana.

Where to begin? There were so many positive experiences from the day of booking I saw how professional Dana was. She followed up throughout the process to ensure would flow as planned. She is such a wonderful person to work with. She truly cares about her work and her clients' satisfaction. The name of her business is truly a reflection of what she charges for her art, though her work is worth much more than her going rate.

Now about her work. We continue to get so many rave reviews about her work even days after the party. Her paintings were very detailed, colorful, precise and had added accents such as glitter. She and her assistant painted well over 45 individuals and each painting contained the same attention to detail as the first. Needless to say we had some very happy customers! Dana painted numerous characters, animals and objects. There wasn't anything she couldn't paint.  She was punctual and one of the last people to leave the party to ensure all that wanted a face painting left with one!!

I had asked Dana to paint a poster board personalized for the party. The final product captured exactly what I had envisioned It was a cowgirl theme and Dana's art complemented the theme nicely.  All of our guests signed the board which made it that much more special.  It was quite unique. 

Last but not least, Dana has an additional gift of writing poetry. She was in tune with how to capture the most eventful times of my daughter's first year of life.  To do so and arrange it so that it thymes is truly remarkable.  I was more than satisfied with the poem and felt such delight to read it to our birthday guests. It's truly a treasure.

Needless to say, Affordable Face Painting has my highest recommendation!  What a blessing it was to find her and I look forward to doing business with her for future parties.

A Very Happy Mom   ;o)

PERSONALIZED POEM ($48 VALUE) FREE

with all 2 hour bookings!  Awesome Custom Poem about YOUR CHILD, framed, read aloud when cake is cut! A TOTALLY UNIQUE GIFT  that keeps on giving!


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!

I can find any character on my iPhone on the spot, but to be safe, let me know your theme prior to your event to be sure I have plenty of characters in that theme. I am known for customizing to make YOUR party AWESOME!
