We couldn't be more pleased with the job that ws done at our church party. We had face painting and balloon art. With the number of kids we expected, Martha suggested she do "fast faces" and simpler balloons to ensure everyone could be served. Well, I was floored by the details and size of her fast faces. I expected a small painting on the cheek, but it was 1/4-1/2 of the face. Lots of glitter for the girls! The kids LOVED it! I'll definitely call her again.
Martha was a great addition to a Xmas party event of which I hosted. She was professional , prompt and delivered as promised. Those who got henna or glitter tattoos found them to be fabulous & fun. I would endorse Martha for any party young or old.

A Face Painting Mom
Former makeup artist turned face painter, henna-glitter-airbrush tattoo artist and childrens/adult entertainer with balloon twisting also avaliable! I use only the highest quality paint, ink, glitter and glue and I am fully insured for your peace of mind. I use high quality, FDA compliant, cosmetic grade makeup products.
We work with you to make your party or event the best, and easiest, ever! We bring everything we need, including tables and chairs, all we need is a little empty space. Set up and clean up are always free! We can provide as many face painters, glitter, airbrush, henna and balloon artists as you need to make your party or event special! The booking process is easy! We would love to help you with your party or event.
Additional Booking Notes
We are easy to work with! Please note, written communication is preferred, that way, we know that we understand what you want! We send you links to very easy contracts and deposits via email, but we will work with you if you do not have access to email/computers. Texts, face book, and voice mails are great ways to inquire about our services, but we need to get the contract into our form online, or via snail mail for a confirmed booking.
You must provide:
We need to get into your party venue quickly to serve you, and we need to bring in a lot of stuff! Reserved parking near the loading/unloading entrance is greatly appreciated, as we can serve you, and the party after yours, on time. THANKS so very much!
Tree shade is not sufficient, we keep our equipment clean and don't want to paint your guest with things that have been exposed to the things that fall out of the sky (Birds and trees drop stuff, YUCK!) and direct sunlight, which degrades the products. We do have options for clients without access to tents, just ask! Being ready for us means that we can set up and get right to entertaining your guests!
We cant paint if we cant see! At evening parties, or parties held in rooms without windows, it will be necessary for you to bring the lights up where we are. We don't mind being in the hallway if you would like to have dim light in your party venue, but knowing we need to see to do what we do can help us get right down to serving your guest with face paint, henna, tattoos and balloons!
A Signed contract and Retainer fee/deposit:
We don't reserve your date and time without these, so get them in quickly so that no one else scoops up your date!
A good estimate of how many people you wish us to serve
We need to know how many people you are expecting at your event for service. You may not know, but let us know that, and we will help you select the time you need to serve your guests. We do our best to work quickly and deliver quality, but if you have many more guests than you expected, the time it will take us to serve them will also go up. It may not seem like a possibility, but it happens, if you are only expecting us to serve children, please tell your adult guests. We work by the hour, and each adult we paint, tattoo, or make a balloon for will add to the time we are at your party. We will serve who ever gets into our line, unless you tell us otherwise, but we don't like to be the one who says no, but we can't say no if we don't know, so please, let us know if you want to serve adults and let the adults know if they are included.
If you are outside the Columbus Ohio Metro area, we need to know this when you request a bid, travel fees apply after 40 miles round trip from Bexley Ohio via MapQuest.
