Experience Matters

Ginger believes that an experience with a face painter should be fun and safe. With years of experience working a wide array of events, she know what will work best for your group. She also only uses the highest quality paints and supplies.

Ginger and Circus Kaput work a wide variety of events:Company Picnics, Holiday Celebrations, Birthday Parties, Corporate Events, Company Picnics, Festivals, Themed Events, School Events, Religious Functions and even Evening Galas! Whether your event is large or small, you will get the same attention to detail and loving care as all of our clients.

At Circus Kaput, we use only FDA compliant, non-toxic and hypo-allergenic face painting products. Face Painting in general is very fun and relaxing.  Our philosophy on Face Painting is that it should be fun and relaxing for the person being painted also!  Our style is soft and gentle as opposed to big and loud.


Everyone knows that kids have really active imaginations. One of the best thing about face painting kids is watching them impersonate whatever animal they may have chosen. Seeing cheetahs sprint across the room or hearing a little kitten meow makes me feel like I’ve done a great job.

Unless we are super busy, we let the kids choose their colors. Some of the combinations are totally unusual and end up looking better than what our artists event planned. Other times, they will have specific details that they want to have added. It’s cool to see kids engage with the artist and participate in the experience with their ideas.

We are very fast, so parents are pleasantly surprised.  It’s amazing how often parents and spectators have commented on our speed! Face painters have all different types of styles, but we excel in moving quickly so as to bring joy to a larger group. The parents are relieved that they don’t have to wait as long to see their child transform, and event hosts are pleasantly surprised at the value they receive by hiring us.


I can't tell you how wonderful you are. The entertainment is a hit every year. People have asked: "Where in the world did you get them?" Once again, Thank you. You help me look good by providing affordable, professional, fun entertainment for the entire family.I also appreciate that they show up on time and call ahead with updates. Great customer service! I can't say enough nice things about the entertainers. They are such nice people.

Booking Face Painting 

Featuring face painting at your event can be a wonderful, memorable experience for your guests.  It can also be a chaotic nightmare leading to disappointment for everyone!  As the event planner, you are in charge of the conditions in which the artist will be painting, as well as the patron environment. Here are some things to consider:

Table and Chairs

At Circus Kaput, we ask the client to provide a table and two chairs for each Face Painter.  The table can be as small as three feet long or as large as eight feet long.  It should be sturdy and on level ground.  Typically we bring some type of covering for our table area, but if you are genuinely concerned about the appearance of your table, you should have them covered.  Some paint and/or glitter may spill onto the table covering.

Chairs without arms are preferred.  Arms on chairs get in the artist’s way to reach the person being painted.  Often children have trouble keeping still.  It’s easier for them to hold still with their arms in their lap.  When painting a moving target such as a child’s face, we need all the help we can get to make the design look great.

We ask that you do not seat artist’s at picnic tables.  We feel so strongly about this that it is in our contract.  A picnic table is constantly being bounced as people get up and down from the benches.  It’s the absolute worst way to try and complete decent face paintings.  It really puts us at a disadvantage to have constant movement and jostling when trying to steady our hand to brush a small face.


Too often people don’t realize that we need a well lit environment to do good work.  We have been placed in dark corners, outside at or after sundown with no lighting, and even on a dance floor in a dim room!  We really need bright light to see what we are doing.  You will have nicer face paintings and the paintings will go faster if the lighting is good.  We do not furnish our own lights.  The venue or the event planner should place painters in an environment where they can see well.  

Harsh Sunlight

We ask in our contract that painters not be placed in direct harsh sun.  At an outdoor event, we prefer a tent, awning, pavilion or even under a tree.  An artist who is sun burned, over-heated and dehydrated cannot make the best experience for your patrons.  The patrons themselves will also be much more comfortable out of harsh sun.

Freezing Temperatures

Many other agencies do not paint outside if the temperature is below a certain number.  So far at Circus Kaput, we have not adopted this rule.  Most of our clients are thoughtful enough to put artists indoors if the temperature is bitterly cold.  Again, this also makes for a much better experience for patrons.  If indoors is not an option, outdoor heaters is the only way to make sure fingers and keep moving and artists can sit comfortably outside.  There are a wonderful variety of portable outdoor heaters that can be rented to ensure the environment is fit for human beings.
