Why Book a Member of FACE?
Organising an event is stressful enough - booking a FACE member can give you peace of mind. FACE has introduced quality standards to the face painting industry. All members hold public liability insurance provided it is available in their country (£5m cover in the UK). Each has passed a stringent accreditation test to be accepted as a member, ensuring their work meets the benchmark set by FACE. Members maintain high levels of health and hygiene to protect the faces they paint, which is welcomed by clients and parents alike, and only use products which have been approved for use on face and bodies. Members can produce fantastic artworks quickly to minimise queuing times at your event. FACE maintains a directory of members that provides a central point to locate proficient, fast, insured painters in whom you can have complete confidence in quality, reliability and professionalism. Further information on our standards and a complete listing of all members both nationally and internationally can be found througout this site.
If you are looking for a face painter for an event you will want to know that the person you employ is a dedicated professional. FACE members know when painting is inadvisable and will not paint someone who:
- Has obvious allergies or skin conditions such as eczema
- Has open wounds, sores on the skin, visible cold sores or conjunctivitis
- Is obviously not comfortable about being painted, is crying or upset, or is
- too young to sit still enough to be painted safely
Members reserve the right not to paint a design they consider offensive or unsuitable
All FACE members have public liability insurance (where available in their country) and follow a code of practice to protect the faces they paint.
