Fine Print, Legal-eze, Procedures
Terms, Conditions and Policies
Face paint is actually makeup. We use cosmetic grade disinfecting agents in our paintbrush water. You can choose for us to paint an arm rather than a face if preferred. Even with added precautions, there is no way to avoid all risk of viral transmission in face and body art - do so at your own risk.
Fees & Payments
Averages $100 to $150 Per Hour Per Artist with a 1 Hour Minimum based on how many hours/type/location of event. Call or email to get your hourly rate. One Artist can paint approximately 12 to 17 faces per hour depending on the intricacy of the designs that are chosen. Be sure to book your time accordingly to avoid leaving anyone out. PLEASE do not ask us to disappoint any guests due to lack of time booked. Sometimes we have an event booked right after yours and we may not be able to stay past stop time contracted here. If you exceed the time booked and we are available to stay, it will be charged in half hour increments. Client will pay for the time booked plus overrun, even if Client has delayed the time we start the actual painting. At no charge to you, we will need 15 minutes of setup and tear down time.
Client must pay for a minimum of 1 hour even if Client uses Artists for less than 1 hour. Your event is not booked until we receive the completed contract. Cancel your event within 72 hours prior or you must pay contracted amount.
All charges are due on the day of the event by cash or check. If you would like to pay by credit card, please do so 3 days in advance of your event. We are happy to send you an invoice.
Travel fees apply when the event is more than 35 minutes from Colorado Springs. Call for a quote. Depending on your event, there may be a charge for outdoor, lengthy or difficult setup - usually $30 but please call for a quote. Parking fees must be paid to artist with other payment. Should a check be returned, there is a $30 returned check fee.
Please either leave a space open in front of the house on the street, the driveway, or a loading dock so Artist can unload equipment. The Client will reimburse Artists for any parking fees.
Please provide a minimum of 4’ x 5’ space and 15 minutes of setup (you do not pay for this time) and take down time is required. Please ensure that location has adequate lighting but we can bring lights if necessary - please let us know IN ADVANCE. Provide access to bathroom faciilities.
You must provide us with STAKED AND WEIGHTED sun/wind/rain shelter, and adequate space and lighting to paint. Our paints contain waxes and glycerine which if exposed to direct sunlight, can become unusable from melting. If you have never set up a tent in Colorado wind, you are grossly underesimating the danger and damage you may cause by not properly securing your tent. Stakes are usually not adequate - weights are usually necessary. We are NOT responsible for injury, damage or any other liabilities caused by pop up tents taking flight. If you are not able to remedy the sun/wind/rain exposure by moving to a sheltered or alternate indoor location, we are leaving without refunding payment.
Noise and Lighting
Please provide dequate lighting or ask about arranging for us to bring lights. You would think it goes without saying but we have to be able to see what we are painting. Failure to remedy this situation will result in us leaving without refunding any monies. We love that you hired a band/DJ but if we can't hear your guests, or they can't hear us it will massively slow us down. Please locate us away from speakers.
Weather (for outdoor events)
For the comfort of your guests and our artists, the client agrees to provide an area with protection from extreme temperatures, sun, rain, snow and excessive wind. Pop up tents must be STAKED AND WEIGHTED or they will take flight and injure your guests. Our paints contain wax and glycerine. Direct sun can melt them to the point thaat we can't use them. Client is responsible to provide an alternate indoor location in the event of inclement weather. The client agrees to pay the full amount contracted once the painter has arrived at the event location, even if it is raining. Please list an alternate indoor location on the front of the contract as we do not offer refunds for inclement weather. If you are not able to remedy the sun/wind/rain exposure by moving to a sheltered or alternate indoor location, we are leaving without refunding payment.
We have the right to substitute talent at any time due to scheduling and location coordination of multiple events. If you want a particular artist, you must specify at booking.
Breaks and Stop Time
Artists will have paid breaks of 5-10 minutes every two hours and access to a rest room. If you have booked by the hour, it is your responsibility to limit additional guests from requesting service after that time. Please book enough time to have all your guests painted to avoid this disappointment.
Cancellations / Refunds / Reschedule
Should you need to reschedule your event, please do so at least 7 days prior and we will make every effort to meet your needs. If you need to cancel the event, you must cancel within 72 hours of the event or you will have to pay the Total on the contract. **We do not offer refunds for inclement weather so please secure an alternate indoor location for your event in advance. Your check MUST clear the bank before we issue a refund check. Should our Artist get sick/ have to cancel, we will make every effort to find a replacement Artist.
Limitations On Artwork
If in public, artists will not paint on any part of the body that is not legal to expose or any place she does not feel comfortable painting. In addition, Artists will not paint subject matter she deems offensive or disturbing.
It is too dangerous to paint the faces of kids under 3 so we will paint something on the arm. Some young children are afraid of a stranger painting their face and at the artist’s discretion, we will paint something small on the child’s arm if need be. It’s better for them anyway because they don’t need a mirror to see their painting. Children should never be forced to get painted and we will not participate in forcing this on a child.
Extreme Adverse Working Conditions
Artist has the right to cease painting and leave without refunding any monies if there are extreme adverse working conditions and the Client fails to remedy the situation after it has been brought to the Client’s attention. Adverse conditions included but not limited to: destructive, violent, or extreme inappropriate behavior of a child, pet or adult; illegal activities; or otherwise dangerous conditions. If you are not able to remedy the sun/wind/rain exposure by moving to a sheltered or alternate indoor location, we are leaving without refunding payment.
While we use ONLY FDA approved cosmetic grade face painting supplies, Artist is not liable for allergic reactions to paints. People with skin allergies or sensitive skin should either not participate, or have Artist perform a patch test at the beginning of the party. Client understands that darker face paints will linger and must be removed with mild soap, water and washcloth. For safety reasons, Artists will not paint children under 3 years old or anyone who is unwilling. Per insurance requirements, Artists will not paint anyone who is or appears to the Artist to be sick or suffering from cold sores, conjunctivitis, ringworm, sunburn, eczema, head lice, any infectious skin condition or open wounds. These determinations are at the Artist’s discretion. Our insurance does not allow party guests or volunteers to use our paints. Artists will use reasonable care, but is not responsible for damage to clothing or property. The Client agrees to pay for any accidents or injuries caused by pets or guests, and/or any damage to Artist’s equipment or supplies caused by pets, lawn sprinklers, or guests.
