Adults Love Face Painting Too

Face Painting is not just for children, adults love face and body painting too! Fancy Faces by Amy has added a memorable experience at night clubs and bars around the Portland area.  See more pictures of my work with adults in the gallery!

Amy lives in Tigard with her husband and their two young boys (you will see them in the gallery). She spent 15 years working in Early Childhood Ed. with children of all ages, including KinderCare and the Beaverton School District. It was there that she learned to face paint, and she has been fine tuning her art over the years. Fancy Faces by Amy officially started in September 2011 after doing some small gig's for friends. The children are her inspiration and she loves creating designs to match their ideas. Face painting brings together her artistic talent and her desire to make people happy.

How many faces can you paint per hour?

Each of the 54 designs on my board take me anywhere from 2-7 minutes to paint. With time for discussing the design and looking in the mirror at the finished product I would say my average is 12-18 faces per hour. However, I can reduce my design choices for larger events and paint 20-30 faces per hour.

What is the best age for face painting?

I have painted newborns and 90 year olds, so I want to say any age. However children under 3 can be fickle, so 3 and up would be the safe answer. I will however try to paint anyone who is willing.

How much space do you need?

I come with a full set up, table (2x4), 1 tall chair. If you have limited space I can set up at a table you provide. 

For outdoor/larger events I also have a canopy(5x5) and display board that I can set up.

I'm having a theme party, can you create custom designs to fit my theme?

Of course! If you have a special theme just let me know. If I don't have a design in my book to fit your theme I will get one before the event. I also take requests at the event, just show me a picture of what you want and I can paint it.

When will you arrive?

I will arrive about 10 to 15 minuets before the agreed upon start time so that I can be set up and ready to paint at the start time. I will arrive sooner for larger events that require canopy set up.

What kind of products do you use?

Fancy Faces by Amy uses safe, hypoallergenic FDA approved professional paints from Snazaroo, Paradise, Tag, Global and Wolf Brothers that wash off easily with soap and water.

Do You require a deposit?

I do not require a deposit at this time, however I do ask that you contact me as soon as possible if you need to cancel so that I make book another event for the time you have reserved.

Do I have to pay for set up and clean up time.

No. I only charge for the numbers of hours that I am painting faces.

What methods of payment do you accept.

I can only accept cash or company checks at this time. In special circumstances I may be able to accept PayPal payments.

We hired Amy for my daughters 6th birthday and she was amazing.  She worked extremely quickly and her designs were the best i've ever seen. My employer's family events often have face painters and she was so much better than any of the painters we've had in the past.

Seriously the best Face painter you will ever find!  Amy's work was so good even the adults got their faces painted. She is so great with kids, even the little ones. Everyone kept saying how fast she was and what great quality of work she did. We will definitely be hiring her again. If you want the best you will too! THANK YOU!
