When facepainting isn’t an amazing idea.
Facepainting is usually an amazing idea. However, there are times when it’s not so much.
Allergic reactions to professional quality face paint products are extremely rare but there are some instances where it’s best not to risk sensitivity or reaction.
We don’t recommend face painting for anyone with skin conditions such eczema or psoriasis. We won’t paint on spots, grazes, or sore and broken skin.
Our artists reserve the right to use their discretion at all times, but will not paint if there are visible signs of any contagious disease or infection (chicken pox, cold sores, conjunctivitis etc).
Facepainting is not adviseable for those with severe allergies (such as a nut allergies etc).
Painting is undertaken at the individual participant’s risk and it is the responsibility of the parent, guardian or host to alert the artist to any possible unsuitability to facepainting or previous rashes, sensitivities or allergies. If, in the unlikely event of a reaction or discomfort, please wash off the facepaint immediately, using only water. Do not use soap or baby wipes, as this may cause further aggravation.
