For many years I have been face painting and balloon modelling at The Light Cinema in Cambridge. Free of charge for the Saturday A.M. viewings. This Saturday was no exception with the staff joining in the fun!
The Shuttleworth Collection like to provide a great day out for the family and I have recently been invited to attend some of their airshows, to provide face painting and balloon models for their visitors.
(Kid’s go FREE, under 16 with paying adult).
Last Sunday I had the pleasure to meet Darren Harbar an exceedingly good professional photographer. He took the wonderful photographs above, showing what great joy a little bit of face paint can make. Happy children, happy parents! What a lovely day everyone had.

The children left for home with handfuls of balloons. As I paint quite fast there was lots of time for making balloon models. And the children loved them, in fact they spent a good part of the party playing imaginary games with the models they had and queuing for more.
The face painting to was very popular and the girls loved the butterfly’s, whilst the boy’s went for Batman.
Balloon modelling…The children just can’t get enough! “Can I have a sword”? “Can I have a belt for my sword”? “Can I have another sword”? “Can I have a gun”?
“Can I have a dog”? “Can I have some fairy wings”? “Can I have a hat”?
“Can I have a flower”?
Bless them, I go as fast as I can so during the 2 hours I’m there they get quite a few balloons and off they go and play wonderful imaginary games.
Balloon models can also be pre-ordered as party favours. x Just contact me if your interested.
Being someone who cares very much about the industry I work in, I take it upon myself to look after my clients and this includes having Public Liability Insurance. Should you be considering booking someone it is worth while asking if they have this. Another good question is approx. how many faces can you do in an hour. YOU MIGHT GET A LOT LESS WHEN YOU PAY LESS!
This weekend I attended a Christening in Great Leighs, Essex. The balloon modelling was extremely popular, I was giving out balloon’s for 2 hours non stop. The boys particularly loved the swords and belts to put them in. They played beautifully with one another using their imagination, having happy sword frights. The girls loved their twisty hat’s and fairy/butterfly wings. Lot’s of other creation’s were made and lot’s of fun was had. Thank you to my wonderful hostess for inviting me and for the lovely comments about the success of the balloon’s as entertainment for the children. x
