Do you think you’re a good artist who can do face paints on children? Ever experienced face painting people during carnivals or festivals? Were you the one who painted on your fiends’ face just before the biggest sports match of your town? If your answer to all these questions is yes, then perhaps it’s time you get on your feet and start your own face painting business!
Use your skills in arts and design to earn in your own business. The demand for face painting is very high at the moment. All kids’ parties probably have face painting as one of the activities so you already have a wide market.
Make sure that you will apply for a business permit in your locality to make your business legal. You can start advertising your services once you’re done with the business permit. Advertising online is the fastest way to do it. You can make a website promoting your service. Spreading through word of mouth is still the best way to promote your business.
You can ask the help of your family and friends to refer you for face painting needs. You can make flyers or brochures with samples of your work and the packages you offer and ask your friends to give them to officemates and other friends.
It is now time to invest on materials you’re going to use in your face painting business. Purchase a lot of paint in various colors, different sizes of brushes, sponges, face painting markers, and water containers. You can find face painting kits in the market too. You can choose to by the smaller start up face painting kit if you’re going to be the only one doing the face painting or you can choose to get the bigger kits with more paints and supplies if more than one person will be doing the face painting.
It is also best to invest in different types of paint such as the glow in the dark or those that are glittery. You will also need to provide designs for parties. You have an option of printing out some designs you can find on the net or make one yourself. Compile your designs in a clear book so you can use them again in other parties.
You will be dealing with a lot of kids most of the time so make sure that you like kids before you get into the face painting business. Just have fun while working and remember to always wear a smile. The best job is the one you enjoy because you’re doing something you love.
