Fancy Face Painting at a Kids’ Dance Event in Manhattan

During the competition, the children got to choose any type of animal face painting, and then competed with their faces painted as that animal!

Below we have a one of the many competitors: A lovely “peacock/bird”!

We also painted cobras, dolphins, butterflies, cats, dogs, and lots of other popular animals.

We love adding our creativity, expertise and enthusiasm to kids’ events!

Little Mermaid Party in NYC!

Little Mermaid Party in NYC!


Last weekend The Little Mermaid “swam” up to the UWS of  NYC to visit a very special birthday girl’s party!

Dressed in her beautiful sequined tail, she did sparkly face painting and a super-fun interactive “Under the Sea” Show with themed music and magic and dancing featuring the story of the Little Mermaid!

Here’s what the parents had to say about The Little Mermaid:

A million thanks for such a wonderful show and face painting!  The Little Mermaid’s patience and talent with the kids was simply wonderful, and the parents were amazed… will remember this birthday forever!!”

The Creative Process of Face Painting

There is something so creative and magical about face painting at kids’ parties! I love face painting so much and when I paint kids’ faces, I like to have them actively participate in the creation process.  Kids are amazing and totally imaginative and they come up with the best ideas!

My favorite part about face painting, however, is how the child, once transformed, really believes he or she is that character!

Face painting is not just limited to the face! Lots of kids (especially littler ones) can opt for a design on their hand or arm.

The possibilities are endless…from fancy tiaras, mermaids, colorful butterflies, rainbow princesses, or kitties/puppies for the girls to Spiderman, Batman, dinos, snakes, spiders, cars, etc for the boys. Plus anything else that the kids can dream up.

If you are a parent looking to hire a face painter, I recommend that you ask the face painter what type of paint they use. Professional face painters use top-of-the-line, high-quality face paints that are non-toxic (like Paradise, Wolfe, Snazaroo, Mehron). These are water-based paints that are applied with a brush.
