Help Me Decide!

This quick guide should help you decide which service will work best for you. However, please contact us if you have any questions. Here are some basic specifications that apply to all services equally.

Age Range

2+ Years of Age

Designs

We have HUNDREDS of designs from small to large for all kinds of events and all kinds of themes.

Weather

For outdoor events, your artist will need shade form the sun, regardless of service. In addition, none of our services can be performed "IN" the rain.

Working Conditions

All services require a well lit area work in. Your artist needs to be able to see what they are doing. Your artist will also require a minimum of 6x6 area to work in. The more light and the more space your artist has, the better the results will be.

Summary

Both are a great way to add some art to your party, and both are perfect additions to Balloon Twisting.

Face Painting

Wolverine Face Painting

Age Range

Face Painting is best stuited for children over the age of 5.

Often children younger than that arent' able to sit still long enough and some simply do not want a stranger touching them.

I generally recommend Airbrush for parties where most of the children are in the 2-5 age range for this reason alone.

Designs

Single Eye Desings: 2-3 minutes
Half Faces: 3-6 minutes
Cheek Art: 4-8 minutes
Full Faces: 6-10 minutes

Weather

Face Painting is not recommended in temperatures above 80 degrees or below 50 degrees.

Face Paints are water activated and so the hotter it gets the more likely it is to run down the face.

Working Conditions

No additional conditions.

Summary

Face Painting is a poor option for pool parties. It will come right off in the water.

Face Painting is a fantastic option for indoor or most outdoor events with children above age 5.

 

 

Airbrush Tattoos

Emoji Heart Airbrush Tattoo

Age Range

Great option for all ages over 2.

Designs

Most small designs can take less than a minute if needed, but on average plan 2-3 minutes per child for basic designs and up to 6 minutes for more detailed ones.

We have a small selection of "realistic" tattoos that can take up to 10 minutes.

Weather

No additional conditions.

Working Conditions

Artist needs access to an elctrical outlet for the comporessor for indoor events. This compressor is very quiet.

For outdoor events, we have a battery powered compressor that lasts up to 4 hours. This comporessor is fine for outdoors, but is too loud for indoor events.

Summary

Airbrush Tattoos are great for basically any kind of event, particulary with younger children, or when you want "something small."

They work great for pool parties, or when it's really hot outside.

They are also a great option for schools, sporting events and grand openings.
