Face Painting at Wilmington Island Farmers’ Market, Coastal Georgia

What’s better than a Saturday spent surrounded by sweet families, locally grown produce, delicious honey, food trucks, and hand-made goods from local artisans? Well, not much if you ask me!

Unless of course you then add fabulous face painting from Chubby Cheeks Body Art into the mix!

I had the absolute pleasure of painting some of the sweetest and most polite children yesterday at the Wilmington Island Farmers’ Market (located at 170 Island Whitemarsh Island Way, Whitemarsh Island, Savannah, Georgia. Saturdays 9am-1pm)

I am excited to be coming back for a few more dates this fall 2017 season where I hope to see some of these sweethearts again!

‘New Beginning’ Maternity Art – Savannah, Georgia

Every single belly painting that I am trusted to create is so special to me.  They each come accompanied with a very personal story, and sometimes a very personal journey of growth.Melinda 7 - With Logo

And so, when I listened to Mel talk about her battle to overcome some tough obstacles along with her desire to recreate herself into the best and healthiest version of herself for the sake of her baby girl, I knew that I wanted to create a piece that would evoke feelings of beautiful transformation, hope, and peace.

Mel, for you I pray for strength and clarity, peace and health, love and light. Cherish your precious blessing and new beginning.

Rebel Princess – Savannah, Georgia Maternity Art

One thing I think that most, if not all, artists pride their selves on is being able to create and offer art that is unique, custom, and one-of-a-kind. And so, one of the very first things I do after I book a maternity art session is get to know my clients on a personal level.

What are their likes? Dislikes? Do they have a unique hobby? Obsession? What about life makes them excited to live it? For April, what made her most happy was her husband, Robert. For this beautiful mother-to-be it was all about surprising daddy-to-be with something fun and unforgettable!April Haas - 4 with logoWhen April told me that her husband was a HUGE Star Wars fan and that baby was going to be the first girl in her husband’s lineage in 97 long years I knew that I had to paint none other than THE rebel princess herself.  Albeit in an ultra cute and adorable fashion. (I don’t always paint in an ultra-cute fashion, but if I see the opportunity I’m going to take it!)April Haas - 8 with logo

April and Robert, blessings to you both as you prepare to welcome your sweet rebel princess into the world.April Haas - 7 With LogoIt was such a joy and honor to have the privilege to create this sweet artwork to commemorate a most magical time in your lives.

Custom Maternity Art – Celena and Wren

I am always so honored and thrilled to paint a mother-to-be during one of the most beautiful, vibrant, and magical times in her life.

Truly, there are few things that give me more joy than being able to create one of a kind art work on a lovely mommy who is at the very same moment creating such a treasured and most precious masterpiece within.

Life is so awesome.

Heartfelt thank you to Celena for allowing me the privilege of painting your lovely canvas. You are beautiful. And baby Wren is blessed to have you as her mommy.

FAQs

What type of paint do you use? I use professional cosmetic grade makeup and glitter made especially for use on skin. I DO NOT use craft or acrylic paints.
Please be aware that even though some paints are labeled as “non-toxic” and “washable” it does not mean they are meant for use on the skin. These products contain harsh chemicals that can damage and irritate sensitive skin or severely irritate the eyes.
My kit only contains high quality, hypoallergenic, anti-microbial, and FDA compliant makeup that as been specially formulated for safe use on skin.
How do I remove face paint? Use a mild soap and warm water. Create a nice lather and gently rub over the paint to loosen it up followed by a rinse. Please be aware that some colors may cause staining and require more than one washing. If stains linger, rub in some baby oil or lotion and wash off after 30 minutes.
What type of designs do you offer? I offer a variety of designs ranging from full faces, half faces, eye designs, and small cheek art. I am constantly striving to learn and perfect new designs that will put big smiles on my clients’ faces.
Have a specific theme? Let’s chat!
How old do you have to be to get face painted? I’m happy to paint ages 3 years old and up. Please keep in mind that some children are not willing to get their faces painted and some tend to have sensitive skin.
If you have concerns that you or your little one may have a sensitivity I would highly suggest getting a patch test done. I will dab a small amount of paint onto the inside of the elbow or wrist and then wait 30 minutes to see the results.
Who will you not paint? To avoid the spread of potential germs and infections, I will not paint anyone with a cold sore, conjunctivitis, open wounds, a continuously runny nose, or appears to be unwell.
Any such clients with the aforementioned symptoms will be treated with sensitivity and offered an alternative instead. I will always have stickers and temporary tattoos in my kit for this type of situation. Please, if you know your child is ill, protect their sweet hearts and do not set them up for disappointment.
Also, I will not paint terrified/crying/unwilling children. Face painting is a happy and magical treat and not one of dread and fear. However, I do have a few tricks up my sleeve and will try my very best to help ease little ones into my chair.
What do I, the event host, need to provide? I provide all of my own makeups, glitters, brushes, etc. What I require from you is space for my setup. I require a minimum of 4’x4′ area for my kit, ample lighting (natural is always best!), and 2 chairs. Also consider that children will likely want to gather around to watch their friends being transformed. Extra room for a small crowd is a great idea!

For outdoor events, cover from the sun and elements is a must for both myself and your guests. In the summer months, air conditioned locations ARE IDEAL.

Send me an email, private message, or call to discuss options.
What types of events do you paint at? I’m so glad you asked! The short answer is that I am happy to face paint anywhere you’d like to amp up the fun, create long-lasting happy memories, and entertain your guests.
The long answer is: Children’s Parties, Birthdays, Church Events, Day Care Centers, Libraries, Bridal/Baby Showers, Wedding Receptions, Corporate Events, Promotional Entertainment, Special Functions, Reunions, Fund Raisers, Bachelorette Parties, Community Events, Engagement Parties, Holiday Parties, Dinner Parties, Trade Shows, Markets, Anniversaries, Sporting Events, Festivals, Street Fairs, Block Parties… Whew!
How far in advance do I need to book an event? I have no set policy for this. I will happily accept last minute bookings provided I am available for that date at no extra charge. That being said, it is always best to book as soon as you know your event date as there is no way to tell how far in advance specific dates will fill up. In order to reserve your date/time I require a non-refundable $45.00 booking fee along with a contract agreement two weeks prior to the event. This booking fee will go toward the total cost of my services. Once your contract and fee have been remitted you are locking in your time and date — all other inquiries for that specific time will be turned away.
How can I pay? Booking fees may be paid via cash or check with the remainder of funds paid via cash upon my arrival to your event.

Any further questions, please do not hesitate to send and email at chubbycheeksart@gmail.com or feel free to give me a call.
