What to Expect
Depending on the package you select at the time of booking, I offer face painting, body painting, temporary tattoos, crazy hair, coloured hairspray, stickers, and workshops in arts and crafts. I bring along all supplies and equipment, arriving a little early to allow for set-up before the event begins. I always require from the hosts..... a table and 2 regular-sized chairs (not child-sized nor bar stools), shelter, and access to clean water so that supplies can be kept hygienic. If you've got a theme for your event and would like the face painting to follow that theme, we discuss this ahead. Otherwise, I bring along lots of cards with images on them for the kiddos to choose from... choosing is half the fun! Most often, for birthday parties or other types of events with a set number of hours to work in and a set number of children to get through during that time, I make adjustments to allow for how big the face painting will be... generally a cheek per child during birthday parties (or another selection from the package). If it's an event with lots of time and fewer kids, or if you are wanting to come for a private appointment, I can do half & full faces. I like to know, ahead of time, who the party is for and any themes, so as to prepare. Face paints come off with water and paper towel, sometimes a bit of soap is needed. Coloured hairsprays need to be washed out before bed (please get permission from parents ahead if they will not be present at your party). Aprons / paint shirts for workshops must be supplied by parents. If you are hosting a large community event or business promotion, it can be helpful to have a volunteer present to assist the kiddos in line... choosing their preferred option before their turn, keeping everyone safe, etc.
Heather-Feather (aka Heather Home) has been painting faces of kiddos (and adults) in Peterborough and area since 2005. Starting at a local festival, filling in for a friend, she recognized how much fun was to be had working with our community's young ones (and young-at-heart) in creative ways. Quickly she flourished, receiving requests for face painting from various departments of the city of Peterborough, local fundraising groups, families throwing parties, businesses holding events, schools, churches, and more! As time went on, she even started including workshops for kiddos so that they, too, could enjoy expressing their creativity in fun ways. With more than a decade of experience, she knows how to keep supplies hygienic and safe to use, following government-set health and safety standards. She loves putting smiles on faces and does a lot of smiling herself!
Additional Booking Notes
All of my supplies are listed as hypo-allergenic. Ingredients lists are always present at events for parents to check if they so wish. I adhere to all government health and safety standards, ensuring that supplies and equipment are kept hygienic. While I do my best to colour-test ahead for staining, I cannot guarantee against staining to all types of fabrics. I do make sure that my police check certificate is up-dated yearly... if you wish to view it, please request ahead that I bring it along, or if you would like a photocopy to keep. If you have any questions, I'm always happy to chat through GigSalad or in person at the event. :)
