My dh has been asked to find a face painter to paint a few faces at a very small neighbourhood 'event'on either the 23rd or 30th August. Does anyone have any recommendations?

My sister had a do and organised some entertainment for the kids to keep them occupied. She used a company called The Face Place , and they were excellent. Too good to wash away afterwards! They did boys as well , Ds1 loved it. You could see if they go to London. Hth.

Check on \link{}. Everyone who is listed has to be off a certain standard before they are allowed to join Face (UK Face Painters' Association). They'll have insurance etc and I'm pretty certain you'll be impressed.

For a bit of a laugh at my dds birthday party we put the base coat of white on and let either the parents or the children do their own faces.

We put up pictures for inspiration and helped by making sure that there wasn't too much water on sponges and brushes.

A good time was had by all, especially the dads who were persuaded by their partners to have theirs done!!

Yes please lisalisa! Jenie, that sounds like a good laugh - although sadly not one we could try out for this event.

It is good fun letting the kids loose on paints - I have a brilliant pic of my SIL painted as a princess by her daughter (a ladybird) and my DD (a dalmation).

I'm face painting tomorrow for a Chernobyl Children's party. Should be fun.

Recently attended a party with a wonderful face painter. She worked at Harrods as their face painter, in the kids depatment. Sorry but I don't remember her name.
