Best face painter!

Kathy was the hit of the party! I cannot say enough great things about her! She was friendly with everyone there, great with kids, very helpful, arrived extra early (and even helped me set up!), huge selection of face paintings and colors, and her work was amazing and detailed! Literally every parent at the party was saying how she was the best they had ever seen. Her work was detailed and beautiful. No two cats looked the same. Every super hero looked perfect. She even did half good guy half bad guy for one boy. None of the kids wanted to wash their faces that night! Amazing and would definitely use her again!

Thank you so very much Kim! Do you recall the name corporate event? Was it the Episcopal School of Dallas, where we painted for Dougherty's Pharmacy on 3/22/14? It was a wonderful event, and Dougherty's was so accommodating!

Great work!

Kathy works quickly and is an accomplished face-painter. While I have not had my face painted, I saw her work at an indoor event and was impressed by her detailed and colorful work. Her artistry is quite professional. She is a thoughtful and personable lady as well.

Enjoyed By All

Working with Kathy was a complete joy. She was professional and courteous before, during and after the event. Her prices were very reasonable and fit well within my budget. In fact, I was able to add a third hour to the event because she was so reasonable. She was thoroughly loved by the kids and adults. Kathy and her assistant were nice enough to redo faces that had rubbed off and add artwork to arms and hands. She was the perfect addition to our little company picnic. Plus, she made my son look like the BEST Spiderman!!!

I really appreciate the communication prior to the event and the day of the event.

They accommodated every single request I had. The kids took so well to them and each and every one sat still as a statue getting their gorgeous paintings done. Very fair pricing. I wouldn't at all hesitate to use these ladies again!

Fantastic!

I contacted Kathy for my daughter's 5th birthday party. We first met her last summer when she was hired for a company picnic where I work. We loved her and her assistant! They were very professional, amazing artists and the kids loved them! So when we decided to hire a face painter for our burthday party this year, Merry Heart Face Painting was the obvious choice. Kathy was not available for our event this year so she sent two members of her team (Carol and Kenzie). They were awesome! The kids LOVED it! It was a My Little Pony party and Kenzie expertly transformed the kids' faces into their favorite Pony. And Carol made some really cool glitter tattoos. They both took their time with each of the kids and did an excellent job. I would recommend Merry Heart Face Painting to anyone!

Birthday Party Face Painting

For my 3 year old daughter's birthday, i was looking for someone very unique in their work....and somehow i was lucky to find Kathy. Kathy & her assistant were great entertainment to the party. 2 year olds to grown ups, all lined up from 5:30 to 9PM for to get their tattoos and face painted. It was lot of fun. She is very creative and does painting very quickly. I would definitely hire her again. We had close to 60 people at the party and pretty much everyone got either a tattoo or face painted.

Sweet Professional Artist!

We met Kathy at the Marco's Grand Opening! She is very sweet, friendly and very Professional! I have never been much on having my girls face painted, but Kathy was so sweet and her artistic ability is Amazing!!!! My girls LOVED their face being painted for the day and it stay on very well! My 2 yr. old wasn't sure about having her face being painted so Kathy offered to paint on her and and my 2 yr old LOVED it also!!! She was bragging to her sisters that she can look at it all day :) That evening it wasn't too bad to get the paint off their faces with a face or baby wipe as Kathy suggested to us. Kathy did great to 'give personal attention & time' to each kid as she also kept the line flowing. It was really awesome that she took a pic of each of our girls and we can view online without any charge. Her creations are very super Cute! We totally recommend her for your next event! We are looking forward to having her as our Paint Artist for our youngest 2 Birthday Party!!! Also, she is great to work with to schedule our date & time and she does great returning calls and emails-which is very important when want to plan the best birthday party as possible and to have no added stress! Will also give review to follow-up after we have this wonderful Paint Artist at our Party!!!!

Talented, professional, and kid-friendly face-painter

Kathy and her assistant, to my surprise, turned out to be the hit of the party. The kids' requests for what was to be painted on their faces covered a large spectrum and Kathy painted them all very well. She even painted, for the first time, a hockey player for my son just like the picture. She arrived on time, stayed as long as we liked, and painted the children as quickly as she could without sacrificing quality.

Kathy's follow up before the event was exceptional -- it made the details for me (the event planner) stress free. The kids were so proud of their paintings -- they were just beautiful. And at the end of the party, when Kathy's team didn't know I was looking from the kitchen, there they were making animal balloons for my last little guests -- I'm sure that made the picnic for them!

Sarah - thank you so much for your kind words! The kids were great and your son Israel is precious! I will be uploading the photos, to Facebook soon!

Merry Heart Is Awesome!!

I have used Merry Heart for the last two years at our churches Fall Festival. She has always provided excellent services to us and the kids just love the designs that give them. Her line always becomes one of the top attractions! She is very professional and tries to please every childs taste.

I am very grateful to have found Merry Heart and look forward to our continued relationship in the years to come.

Thank you Tracey! it is always a special delight to work with your church and I love your commitment to outreach in the community! I look forward to being with you year after year! :) I will be sending you copies of the photos soon! Please let me know what address to send them to!

Wonderful job! Will definitely be booking again!

I called Kathy with Merry Heart Face Painting the day before my daughter's birthday party in a panic because our other booked attraction fell through. Kathy was so accomodating and flexible! She managed to come paint faces at my daughter's party in the middle in between another event she had already committed to, juggling both events very well. The children loved her and she is very talented, bringing pictures of things she could do specifically for our sesame street theme. I highly recommend this service and my husband and I have already said we need to book her again for our next party!

Thank you Kierschen! Your group was wonderful to work with! First time I ever had another child lay his head in my lap as I was painting on another! That made my day!

WOW!!! GREATEST FACE PAINTERS EVER!!!

I could not believe the incredible art that was walking around on the kids faces. Made me want to go get my face painted I thought they might be able to make me look younger! We had tigers, supermen and sharks mouths using the kids mouths it was just amazing!!!

Thanks,

Hope you come back next year. Buddy Walk 2011 Chairman

Wonderful Experience!

She was wonderful with the children, she came early to set up, stayed until every child that wanted face painting was finished.. She had lots of creative designs, and did an excellent job painting what the kids wanted! Could not have asked for a better experience... and GREAT price too!

Fantastic!

We had a swimming party for my 7 year old and Kathy brought glitter tattoos that lasted, not only in the pool, but several days after. The faces she painted were adorable and so good. All the kids loved her and had a blast!! I will be calling her again!

School birthday part

I hired Merry Heart Face Painting for my 4yr old daughters school birthday party. The children loved it and it was a great change from goodie bags for the kids. The ladies were wonderful with the kids and the kids warmed up to them really quickly. They did not wear costumes, so the school allowed it and the children responded well and were really interested in watching each other getting their faces/arms painted. These ladies did a wonderful job, were very affordable, and I highly recommend them to anyone.

Review by Aimee P.

Kathy at Merry Heart Face Painting is such a joy to have around at any event. Her sweet personality puts a smile on the kids faces before they even get painted...and once she finishes painting them they are even happier! She is very professional and always makes sure the job gets done right.

Cross Timbers Intermediate School hired Merry Heart Face Painting to do our Sixth Grade Social the theme was " Winter Wonderland 2010". All the children that participated absolutely loved the face painting and thought it was something fun and different. I would recommend them to all my family and friends. Thank you Merry Heart Face Painting for providing such a fun and unique service for our children. Look forward to using you again in the future.

Kathy and her team of facepainters and balloon twisters arrived promptly with ample supplies and materials to decorate their tent, including signage. Their work was very nice, and they worked well beyond the hours contracted. We were extremely satisfied and would use them again.

Booking Info

  • Typical Gig: 60 - 480 minutes
  • Fee: $90-150 depending on location
  • Insurance: Coverage is for myself only.
  • Languages: English, Spanish, Other

Overview

There is nothing better than having a child return 30 minutes after their painting, to announce that they have been stopped several times - "even by grownups!" - asking about their face painting! :) This is exactly what happened at the Mansfield Music Festival on October 15th!

Additional Booking Notes

Lighting is important, as is covering of some kind if I'm outside. Ideally, I prefer to work indoors, so that wind is not an issue. But, barring wind...I love to work outdoors!

Merry Heart Face Painting

FIRST, I have 2-3 gigs on most weekends, so if you're interested, please call or email me right away to see if you can get the date and time you want! In a nutshell, here's what we offer: 1) Talented artists who are great with children,2) Bi/Tri-lingual artists that speak English, Spanish and Sign Language,3) FDA approved, safe paints and glitters, 4) Digital/Disposable cameras to take photos of every painting & 5) Great Communication/Coordination prior to the event! I do almost all via email, to avoid confusion and so that both of us have a written record. If you don't have ease of access to a computer, you might ask a friend to be a go-between.

We arrive 45 minutes to an hour ahead of the scheduled painting time. This means you pay only for painting and not setup! :) Ideally, we like to get the birthday child painted before the guests arrive!

The Merry Heart Face Painting team (1-5 people) is all about making the event more fun for all the attendees! The art is important but not as important as working with the kids! We want the face painting/glitter tattoos to make your event fun and memorable! We recommend 1 artist for every 10-15 children, per hour. So, for an expected party of 20, 1.5-two hours might be best. That's one painting every six minutes (and that includes getting in and out of the chair and any picture taking). We paint with kid-safe paints and products suitable for children aged 3 and up.

You can also, add glitter tattoos to your party! Glitter tattoos are stunning, shimmery designs applied directly to the skin using body adhesive. These tattoos look great for 3-5 days, are completely waterproof, and can be removed with alcohol. We have a great assortment. Great for summer days and pool parties! This requires an additional artist (billable in some cases, for groups of 12 or more) and payment of $50-75 per hour. When you are considering the time you need...please consider that many times we have teens and adults get in the line! :) So if you're on a tight budget, you might have to limit to a particular age group!

As for your event, you simply tell me all about your party plans and I'll make a recommendation as to the number of painters needed to make the most of your event. If you're with a charitable organization, ask me about special discounts and ideas to raise funds to cover the expense! When you compare to the price (and time) of providing goodie bags to a whole group...you will find that Face Painting is quite reasonable and will last so much longer than a piece of candy or tiny toy.

We also do our best to take digital (or disposable photos) of our work and post to Facebook so that you can print copies and/or share with your friends and family! If you have a big event planned, but a limited budget, I will customize a "cheat sheet" for the children to choose from, so that we get the most paintings for your dollars!

I have a large network of friends that are clowns, balloonists, party coordinators and more! I will be happy to help you find additional entertainers for your special occasion - at no extra charge - Just Ask! I'll even hook you up on other face painters, if I'm not available! I have a list that I maintain and will email to you. So, let's get the party started! Just contact me with all the details: Date, Time, Location/Venue, Theme, Number of Children invited (faces to be painted) and their ages. I look forward to hearing from you! It's never too early to book your event! We book up quickly!

Once you express an interest, I can email you an invoice to cover the required deposit, which applies to the balance of the quoted amount. It is not an add-on surprise! If you don't want to pay online, you can mail me a check or money order or even meet me in person at a time and place mutually convenient for both of us!

Influences & Inspiration

The ability to paint for free, for my church and daughter's schools over the past 20 years, at fairs and carnivals has been a big influence for me personally. My father is a fantastic landscape artist and has also been a tremendous influence. My Mom also encouraged me to persue my art by taking me shopping and buying me the tools I needed to practice!

Setup Requirements

Access to electricity if outdoors, after dark

Access to water (for rinsing brushes and such)

Easy Access to load/unload equipment or assistance from others if quite a distance.
