Amplified Artistry’s Covid-19 structure
We are making sure we follow strict new guidelines to keep everyone safe: – We can only paint those that are well! Unfortunately we are unable to paint anyone that may appear to have a runny nose, cough, fever etc. This applies to the painter too, we will only send painters that are well and have not been in contact with anyone that is/has been sick. – Keeping everything clean and sanitised! We will wash/sanitise our hands between painting each child, as well as wiping down any surface that has been touched. All children need to have a clean face and hands before they sit in our chair. – Keeping brushes and sponges clean. A single sponge is used per load and will not be reloaded after touching the face, a sponge that has touched the face will be put away to be thoroughly cleaned or disposed of after the party. Brushes will be washed thoroughly between dipping in our paints and seperate brushes will be uses where possible.
Seperate water will be used for cleaning brushes and loading brushes. Paints will be misted with Isopropal alcohol after each person who has face painting.
Face Painters will be required to wear a mask where and if necessary. – We follow safe distance rules by making sure that the artist stays 2 metres away from anyone that is not being painted. The painter will set up to paint one child at a time and have the child facing away from the paints and brushes.
Do you dress up?
No not usually, I prefer to concentrate on make-up or face painting. Others can be referred if required.
Only basic ballooning provided upon request and usually as a time filler. I prefer to concentrate on make-up or face painting. Others with more extensive twisting skills can be referred if required.
When do you arrive at the party?
Your artist will arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time to set up. A nearby parking spot would be very much appreciated. Please provide a shaded area approximately 1.5 to 2 meters for our set up and for guests to wait.
What paints do you use?
We only use quality water-based, hypo-allergic FDA approved paints. They are easy to wash off and gentle on the skin. We use body paint brands TAG, Ben Nye, Superstar, Chameleon, Aquacolour, Kryolan, Mehron and Global face paints. We use Amerikan Pixie Paint Face & body glitter gels, hand made gem clusters and specially formulated body glue for glitter tattoos. These products are skin friendly, non-toxic and easy to remove. Our paints are formulated to be safe for sensitive skins and contain an SPF 10. The glitters we use are designed specifically for face painting/ make up. They’re rounded poly- glitter and unlike craft glitter, which has sharp edges. Our poly glitter doesn’t cause damage to the eyes or other soft skin tissues. Some glitters we have dissolve and are environmentally friendly.
How do I remove the paint after the event?
To Remove paint: We recommend warm water, a little soap on a damp dark coloured cloth. Lather soap and water on the face in a circular motion to loosen the paint on the face or body part. Rub softly with a dark coloured face washer/cloth, rinse paint and soap away with the face washer and warm water. Some colours may stain the skin slightly. If this occurs simply repeat above instructions or try applying sorbolene creme or mild baby oil or eye makeup remover on a cotton pad, leave for 10 minutes then rinse again to remove residue. Make up wipes and baby wipes work well too.
