There's a blog for inspiration, plus we have a private online community on Facebook, called Face Paint Club.

Last count there were more than 2500 members - the majority are working face painters. Beginners and questions are always welcome and supported.

It's a private group so you'll need to request access. When accepted, you can search the group to find discussions on many face paint related topics - or start a new discussion if you wish.

We also have a Beginner FAQ page for quick reference.

If you haven't found the answer to your question and you would like a phone consultation - please reach out via the help desk and request a time for a 15 minute consultation.

Q. Do You Accept Creative Kids Vouchers

A. No. We withdrew from the Service NSW Creative Kids program in March 2022.

While we loved being a Creative Kids provider - and received lots of wonderful feedback from families about our kits and lessons - when the program was updated overnight by Service NSW, it excluded providers from supplying materials in exchange for the vouchers.

Yes, we know other providers are bending the rules and offering materials for a small extra fee, but we are not one of them. Our premium quality kits were never marked up to take advantage of the vouchers, and they remain the same great value they always were.

From 1/3/2022 onwards, providers are only able to offer live lessons in exchange for the vouchers. While we trialled live online lessons for several weeks, we found our customers were really only interested in the pre-recorded lessons.

In any case - we now offer a full beginners course, with more than 25 lessons. And we still have the same great kits 🥰

When you buy one of our amazing face paint kits, we'll include the course as free bonus. Find out more here
