I would highly recommend Gretchen was amazing! She was responsive in making the reservation. She was punctual. She had everything she needed with her. She set up and got right to work and literally the kids loved her, the painting she did was fantastic as well as the balloons! We were absolutely thrilled with our choice to use her!
Response from Paintertainment:
Thank you so much, Macy! I had a wonderful time at your event!! :-)
Paintertainment provided face painting and balloon artistry for my daughter's 5th birthday. The artist was very patient with the children and very skilled - she ended up being the highlight of the party, even more than the bounce house! The face painting was absolutely gorgeous and the balloons went far beyond your typical balloon animals -- multiple colors, multiple balloons, faces, eyes, etc. Worth every penny for my daughter's special day!!!
simply outstanding! We will for sure hire them next year :)
Our company had two each for face painters, balloon artists, and caricature artists. Every person was great! They seemed to enjoy the day and engaged the people with whom they interacted - adults and kids. As a planner, it was fun to provide activities that families might not experience due to cost.
I highly recommend using their services.
Response from Paintertainment:
Thank you so much for your business, Rande, and your review! I really appreciate it! All of our artists had a wonderful time at your picnic. Hope to see you again next year!
I highly recommend Gretchen from paintertainment!!! Not only was she fantastic with the kids, but very talented. She created some beautiful face art, and all the girls were super happy!!! I will definitely use her Again.
Gretchen from Paintertainment is the best around. We hired her for our daughter's 7th birthday party. It was so much fun. The kids LOVED it. Besides being incredibly talented and one of the best face painters I have ever seen, Gretchen is incredibly kind and easy to work with. She was very patient with the kids and accommodated all of their requests and ideas. We will definitely hire her again.
AWESOME! This pretty much sums up our experience with Gretchen. She brought along another face painter to help her get us done and ready for our event., Paint did not flake or cause itchiness. We received MANY compliments throughout the evening. We will definitely recommend Paintertainment to anyone that is looking for an affordable facepainter.
We hired Gretchen to do facepainting for our 10 year anniversary party. I based my decision in large part on the talent displayed in pictures from websites and had high expectations. To say I was not disappointed would be an understatement. Everything about the experience of working with Gretchen was great. She was prompt and informative in correspondence. She was prompt and prepared for the event. The kids loved her work and many came back several times over the course of the event. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
We had a carnival themed party for our kids this Friday the 23rd, and of course came across paintertianment at the fair so we just had to call. She was extremely helpful and super nice. She does an amazing job and is awesome with all the kids. Of you're looking for a face painter, trust me she is the one to call ;-)
I'm a professional Santa Claus, Santa Carlucci and Gretchen has worked for me at children and adult Christmas parties for the past 4 years, I always see great results of her work since the children and adults visit her usually before they see me. From simple candy canes to stylish henna tattoo designs, Gretchen has shown me and my clients they picked the right artist to help enhance the Holiday party experience, I highly recommend her for your party!
We have hired Gretchen for our annual NNO event for the past few years. We ususally have in attendance around 800-1000 people. Gretchen is great. She is quick and her designs are outstanding. The kids love her and we continue to book her every year. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any party or event.

Additional Booking Notes
I only use face paints and glitters that are FDA approved for cosmetic use. Anything else can be very dangerous to children's delicate skin, and safety is of utmost importance! I realize just how hectic things can get for an event planner, so I bring along everything that I need, including my table and chairs, so you don't have to do extra work!

Influences & Inspiration
I come from a family of artists and have been painting since I was old enough to hold a brush. I started face painting in high school, and have continued through college and ever since! I am constantly striving to explore what's new and what's going on in the face and body painting profession and tapping into my own artistic skills to give you the latest and greatest designs!
