Quoted price

Face painters provide interactive entertainment at birthday parties, festivals, school events, holiday parties, weddings and more. They can paint full-face, half-face or cheek designs. Face painters are available for guests of any age and can work within a party’s theme. Several factors affect the cost of face painting.

Hours

Length of time is a main contributor to the cost of face painting services. Some face painting artists charge by the hour while others offer a flat rate for an event. All-day events or services booked for a certain number of hours may provide an opportunity to save. For example, Spectator Party Art offers 15 percent off services for six or more hours.

Variable rate

Some face painting artists offer their services within a price range. For example, Face Painting by Josie charges $75–$125 per hour depending on number of people, travel distance to the event and the type of service provided.

Cheek versus full-face

Cheek art requires less time and less paint per guest than half-face or full-face art. During the quote process, many face painters will determine which service clients prefer for their event and provide a higher or lower hourly rate accordingly.

Set rate

Other face painters have set hourly rates regardless of guest count or which type of face paint a client prefers. They may still charge additional fees for travel, however, so be sure to clarify. Here are some pricing examples:

Travel

The time and expense required for travel to an event will often be reflected in the cost for services. Some face painters charge a higher price per hour or a separate travel fee, or they set a minimum number of hours required for attending an event. For example, Spectator Party Art has a minimum of 1.5 hours for any event over 60 miles away.
