Hourly services start with a base price. Up to two services per hour are included in this price. If you want a third service, you will need to book at least an hour and a half.
I have recently added tiered pricing, meaning that the more hours you book, the better discount you get! I also offer reduced rates for 501(c) non-profits hosting fundraisers.
After that, there may be required add-ons. If your event is 40 miles or more from my home, there is a two-hour minimum for your party, plus a small travel fee depending on distance. I require shelter from the elements (sun, wind, rain). If shelter is not provided at your event, you can rent a 10×10 pop-up tent from me for an additional fee.
Another option I offer is called “pay-per-face” (PPF) instead of hourly. This means that the guests at your event pay out of their own pockets to get their faces painted, like at a festival. Obviously this option is riskier for me, as a business, and hourly is usually preferable for smaller events. If the event is open to the public, there are multiple thousands of attendees, and if your advertising has alerted your guests to the expectation of paying for my services, PPF can work.
