So with the last few months being rather on the quiet side, I have been thinking a lot about moving forward and what happens next (especially after I had a clear out of all my product that has expired since March that would otherwise have been used up at birthday parties, events and body painting competitions and shoots!).
As a hair and makeup artist, I have been back working on shoots, in studio and on weddings since August, so have had a bit of time to get used to the new way of working. I have also been using my glitter a lot in my hair work (everyone needs a bit of sparkle after having a pretty miserable 2020!) so I've come up with a way to be able to safely offer my glitter bar service going forwards, once gatherings are able to happen again. I still have some figuring out to do on how to manage face painting at events, whether that's a small birthday party, a wedding or a festival, however whilst these gatherings are not currently able to go ahead, I have been thinking about how I can keep the painting merry-go-round alive on a more one to one basis.
With Halloween approaching, I have decided to open up my books for private bookings. These will be very limited for Halloween, as appointments will be longer than usual in order to allow time for covid secure working practices, and appropriate cleaning and disinfecting time. I will also be offering different services to previous years. As well as Face painting, whether you want to be transformed into a skull, a zombie, or just have a little something to make you feel a bit extra, I will also be offering Hair and Makeup services! I am still working on my price guide for this, and it will be available to download shortly! All designs will be discussed in detail before booking is confirmed
I will also be opening up my books to private maternity art bookings, and body painting bookings. These designs will also be discussed in depth before booking is confirmed, as well as discussing if you would like me to recommend a professional photographer to capture every detail of your experience. As these experiences are much more bespoke, I am unable to create a definitive price list, however as a guide, maternity art bookings will start at £100 and Body Painting bookings will start at £250. These both include sketch and design work, 2 design revisions, and basic modesty covers where required.
So, just to recap!
-I am opening my books for one to one bookings, no parties or events just yet!
-The Halloween Price Guide will be available shortly, and will include face painting, glitter, hair and makeup services
-Maternity and Body Painting is open for booking, again on a one to one basis
-With the option of photography (highly recommended for Body Painting!)
-No booking is confirmed until we have discussed your design in detail
-No booking is confirmed until a booking form with t's and c's has been signed, and a non refundable deposit has been taken
-For Maternity and Body Painting, sketches will be provided with up to 2 revisions before the big day!
