FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Many Faces Can You Paint In An Hour?
It depends on the event. Our artists are able to paint 12-15 high-quality designs in an hour. More time will be required for more guests. For larger crowds, ask about our “speed painting” option -where your guests can choose from a limited menu of quick but impressive designs that take less than two minutes to paint.
How do I remove cosmetic face paint?
Apply mild soap or baby shampoo to painted area without adding water. Lather in circular motion to loosen the pigment, then wipe the skin off with damp paper towel using a lifting motion. Rinse the area with water and repeat if needed. After, feel free to gently rub the area with coconut oil or moisturizer.

Are Your Products Safe?
Your safety is our top priority! For your protection, we use only professional-grade, cosmetic body paint that is hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, and FDA approved for use on skin, and cosmetic-grade, polyester glitter.
How much do you charge?
The cost of a party is dependent on a number of factors: how many guests will be present, how much time is necessary to paint each guest, the ages of the guests, and the location of your party. However, events are usually around $140 for the first hour and $80/hour thereafter. Please feel free to call or email for more detailed pricing and answers to any questions you may have. Our price is slightly higher for airbrush and caricature art.
Can You Provide Multiple Artists?
Absolutely! Just let us know how many you need.
How Far Do You Travel?
We serve the greater Indianapolis area. For events farther than 30 miles, a $1/mile travel fee may apply. We will also travel outside Indiana - please contact us to discuss our terms.
Are You Insured?
Our artists carry individual liability insurance for public and nonprofit events, and proof of insurance is available upon request. For private events, we strongly recommend that you carry your own coverage.
Do You Paint Adults As Well?
Absolutely. We are all just big kids at heart!
How Do I Pay?
We use Square, Inc. for our online payment processing. Once your event has been booked, you will be emailed an invoice that can be paid securely online. We also accept major credit/debit cards by phone, cash, or checks payable to Indy Face Painting & More. Checks can be mailed to the address shown at the bottom of this page.
How Far In Advance Do I Need To Book My Party?
We accept party reservations right up until the day of your event IF we are available. Typically, clients book three to five weeks in advance, while larger venues are encouraged to book two to three months in advance. Please book your event as soon as you have a date set to avoid disappointment—our calendar fills up fast.
Do You Paint Very Young Children?
Children under three can get upset or frightened when they see a paint brush moving toward their face. Small children usually prefer to have something painted on their arm, so they can watch the artist paint and admire it after. We do not, however, paint small children who do not wish to be painted.
How Do I Book You For My Event?
Click the “BOOK NOW” tab on this page and follow the prompts.
Can I reschedule without losing my payment?
Yes, up until five days prior to your event. We’d be happy to work with you to agree on an alternate date to reschedule and apply your payment to that date. Because our calendar fills quickly, we cannot guarantee that that we will be able to accommodate your new date and time.
How do I care for and remove glitter/air-brush tattoos?
Glitter and air-brush tattoos are waterproof and usually last three to five days, depending on skin type, design placement, and care. After swimming, blot the tattoo dry without rubbing or scrubbing to avoid damage. Avoid using lotions on and around the tattoo to preserve the base. To remove tattoos, use rubbing alcohol or baby oil.
Can you paint my Company Logo?
Yes. With advance notice and written approval from your legal department we can even create a custom stencil of your logo to add to our face painting designs or air-brush tattoos.
What are glitter tattoos?
Glitter tattoos are a great addition to face painting or can be used by themselves at your special event. Since glitter tattoos are waterproof, they’re the perfect attraction at any pool party. We do not apply glitter tattoos to the face.
Do you require a deposit?
We generally ask that full payment is made to hold your place on our calendar. After booking, your event becomes our top priority, which means that all other events are turned away. You may cancel or reschedule your event, with a minimum of five days notice.
