Funky Fun Faces
Face painter


My name is Alison Critchley and I am a locally based face painter also offering glitter tattoos.

I work to a high standard and consider myself reliable, punctual, well presented and professional at all times.

I only use high quality professional, EU and FDA approved, water based paints. All paints can be removed with soap and water (not baby wipes). Some paints may stain a little but this fades quickly.

Glitter tattoo's are waterproof and durable. They will last on average about a week to ten days, possibly slightly longer . Prolonged water or dampness on your skin will reduce the life span of your tattoo. If necessary they can be removed using either alcohol wipes or regular soap, water and a bit of elbow grease!

I supply my own table and chairs (and gazebo if necessary!).
Please call me on 07805 05 43 76 for any further information or to discuss your planned event.

or alternatively email

I cover all areas in and around Chorley, if you think I may not cover your area just please call me for a chat.

Deposits and Payment

Any verbal/email booking will be held for 4 days. To secure your date and time a non-refundable deposit of £10 will be requested.  Booking confirmation will be sent via email or Facebook messaging.  The balance of the party/event must be paid on the day in cash; please note that I am unable to accept cheques as form of payment.


Arrival and Set-up and Leaving

We will arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to the party/event starting, in order to set up. It is advisable to have a maximum limit of 20 children, to be painted within a 2 hour party booking.
To avoid any disappointment, some full face designs are more detailed and need longer, so please take this into consideration.
Please do not ask us to stay longer than the mutually agreed time, without prior agreement. he face painter/artist may be able to work longer at a half hourly rate, but this is at the discretion of the face painter. Please be aware I may have additional bookings to go to.


Terms and Conditions

We have your children’s safety and interests in mind at all times and as a result we reserve the right not to paint under certain conditions – see below for examples as the list is not exhaustive:

We will not paint faces of anyone under 3 years of age. The face paint manufacturers do not recommend paint for anyone below this age and very young children can sometimes be overwhelmed by the results. We may paint a small design on hands or arms of children younger than 3 years of age but this will be at our discretion. We will not paint anyone who is obviously unwell (runny nose/temperature/rash) or has any other visible skin complaint (eczema; chicken pox; acne; cold sore; open wounds; eye infections etc). We will not paint anyone against their wishes (this may result in stopping painting before the final result if a child becomes uncomfortable or changes their mind). Please do not force your child to be painted if they really are uneasy or unwilling – face painting should be an enjoyable experience for both the child and parent.

Children must be under constant adult supervision whilst being painted or waiting their turn.

If you believe the person to be painted has sensitive skin, a skin patch test can be carried out. It is the guardian’s responsibility to inform the face painter in advance if this is the case. We cannot be held liable for any allergic reaction to the paint.


If you are making a booking for a children’s party, please ensure all parents are aware in advance that a face painter will be on site, especially when parents/guardians are unlikely to be present. As part of the booking process we can provide you with pre-printed cards to send out with your invitations notifying parents. It is the host’s responsibility to ensure that all parents/guardians have been informed and that any comments are relayed back to the face painter.
