Face Painting by Louise

Mighty Mac and LouiseI began dabbling with face Painting in Edinburgh the early 90s whilst involved in amateur dramatics. I moved onto children's face painting for friends and family and eventually created Funny Faces as a business in 2001 (now Parties and Events.co.uk) providing face painting and party entertainer packages throughout Edinburgh and East Lothian.

Well-versed in the favourites of the day, I cover Spiderman, The Hulk, Batman, butterflies (with lashings of glitter!), tigers, pirates, Frozen etc. and can paint a range of more weird and wonderful faces for the more adventurous. See the gallery for some of the latest face painting designs

For the older children, or for halloween, I have special FX wax to create scarily realistic scars and bullet-holes.

All the products I use are hypo-allergenic and safe to use. They include products by Kryolan, Snazaroo and Grimas. The paints, glitters and wax all wash off the skin with ease. Soap and water will do the trick for skin and staining on clothes will come out in the wash.

On average, I paint 12-15 faces per hour. Generally, the younger the children.... the longer the time per face.

Extract...I know all our little princesses and Bake the pirate loved Louise's fantastic face-painting, and Bryden's incredible balloon creations went down a storm, especially the horses, which everyone loved riding around the room...
