For the safety of our customers, we regret that we will not paint anyone who looks unwell (a runny nose, temperature or rash) or appears to have a cold sore, conjunctivitis, chicken pox, or any other infectious skin complaints to avoid spreading it on to our other customers. Those with open cuts, wounds, scabs also cannot be painted due to the risk of infection. Also, those with visible skin complaints, such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, although not contagious, will not be allowed to have their skin painted due to the paint possibly irritating the skin.
We do not paint children under the age of one because the products we use are not recommended for babies.
The face paints we use have been designed for professional use and comply with all EU Health and Safety regulations. As with any cosmetics, some people may be sensitive or allergic to a wide range of common products. Therefore, if you are concerned about possible reactions to the face paint, please discuss this with the face painter before you or your child is painted. A skin patch test or a motif on the hand can be carried out to be on the safe side. It is the responsibility of the parent or the guardian to inform the face painter in advance of your concerns before proceeding with the face painting. Brush of Colour cannot be held liable for any allergic reactions to the face paint.
The face paint is water based and can be removed easily with soap or baby shampoo and plenty of water – be careful around the eye area. Some of the colours may temporarily stain the skin slightly, but using baby lotion after washing may help to remove this stain. If the face paint comes in contact with your clothes, then the clothes should be soaked in cold water before washing normally.
