Face Paint FAQ: I'd like to face paint at the markets. Do I need a permit? Insurance? Or... anything else?
The first time 'going public' as a face painter is super exciting! But it can also be daunting.
Booking a market stall is a great launching pad for a new face painter...
Not only do you get to 'dip your toe' into the world of professional face painting, but if you hand out business cards to all your customers, then you're almost guaranteed of getting enquiries for future bookings.
Before you know it, your new business will be taking off!
As a bonus, you'll also build confidence - because there's nothing like a line up of paying customers to boost to your courage and keep the momentum going. Yeah baby!
And I speak from experience, because booking a stall at my local markets is how I got started in 2011. I haven't looked back - and I'm still doing the same market all these years later. I love it.
