Frequently Asked Questions

  • How early should I book you?
    • The earlier the better! Weekend afternoons book up quickly, so you may not get your desired time if you call at the last minute, although it's worth a call, because you never know when we might still have an opening!
  • Do you require a deposit? 
    • Yes, this protects both us and you. We will make sure your date is locked in once we receive your deposit via credit card (we use Intuit for processing).
  • Are you insured?
    • Our artists are insured through the World Clown Association by International Insurance Company of Hartford for $1,000,000.
  • What do our artists need at the site of my event? 
    • Face painter: a table, two chairs, and some shade. If this will not be possible, please let us know in advance, and we will be happy to provide our own. 
    • Balloon twister: just some shade!
  • Can a single artist offer face painting and balloon twisting during a one-hour booking?
    • No.  Our artists are specialists in their chosen skill, and do not offer both services at the same time.  If you have a limited budget, and a big event, balloon twisters can get to many more kids in the same time period than can one face painter.  We will happily offer both services at the same time by providing two separate artists.
  • How many kids can be painted in an hour of face painting? 
    • Our face painter can paint up to 12 kids per hour. This allows for 5 minutes per child.  If more want to participate in the fun, please book additional time in advance, as we hate to disappoint the kids. We usually have to pack up and leave promptly, in order to be on time for the next party!
  • How many balloons can you make in an hour? 
    • The amount can ranger widely, all the way up around 50, depending on the complexity of the sculpture. If we are doing line work at a large event, the balloons tend to be quick, simpler sculptures. At a private party with 10-15 kids, everyone will likely get multiple, larger balloon sculptures.
  • How do I care for my balloon animals?
    • If your balloon creations are kept off the ground and grass, and out of sunlight, they can last a week, or even more!
