Why hire Carl Mann?
I am a skilled face painter who uses airbrush and regular paint brushes, using industry safety-approved Mehron products. I also have a degree in illustration. Almost any kind of illustrative painting can be done by me.
If you are looking for a fun activity for your children's special day, fundraiser, carnival, corporate event or expo, then this is it. Adults are welcome to join in on the fun, be a it game day, an office party, celebrations or a product placement body painting. I have also done some fun work on very pregnant bellies.
Having a lifelong artistic leaning refined with a degree in illustration from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, I have been face painting for years with great results. I have an extensive list of large and small murals and illustrations, with literally dozens of commissioned art assignments.
I have a large library of designs and stencils, but if you have something unusual in mind, please bring a reference material. A combination of airbrushing and hand-painted techniques are available. I have done scores of adults and children, leaving them happy.
My customary rate is $75 for the first hour with a one-hour minimum and $25 for each additional hour plus $2 for every 5 miles driven. I can usually get a child done in five minutes with a simple design, ten minutes for a full face; everything depends on how much detail you would like.
I am a father of 3, and my 12-year-old boy is on the autism spectrum, so I have an experience working with special needs children. I am very good with kids, and I will probably bring my 11-year-old girl as a helper. She is also very good with children, and she has become a semi-skilled painter herself.
During the summer months, I am a co-owner of a drive-in restaurant in Hortonville, Charlie's Drive-in, www. charliesdrivein. com and we are enjoying our 48th year in this 2013. During the fall and winter, I am available for more face painting, but I would be able to schedule summer or spring events.
My gear fits in a large tackle box, and the only supplies I would need on your side would be a couple of chairs and a surface. I can do most kinds of painting, and I am available for a wide range of artwork. My wife and I have also been commissioned to do appearances as Elvis and Marilyn. Prices are negotiable on that.
