A few weeks ago I was asked if I could paint My Little Pony style faces?
My reply, “no but I’m willing to practice and learn”.
This was the result!
I enjoyed the challenge and received an email from my client to say the children had very much enjoyed the party!
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.
I appreciate booking someone from a website is not quite the same as having seen them at work or via a recommendation.
Therefore when I had completed my face painting and balloon modelling at this party I was elated to be praised highly by both the hostesses and the guest’s parents. The hostess said she hadn’t really been sure what to expect but would definitely be recommending me in the future.
If anyone would like to contact previous clients and I am more than happy to provide telephone number’s (having sought the client’s permission).
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!
