FACE is about a love of face painting and caring about the faces we paint. It is about raising and maintaining standards of face painting, promoting training within the industry and the use of safe products, practices and techniques.

The Association was formed in 1994 with just 23 people and has grown to an International network of highly skilled and professional artists. We have become a valuable and trusted resource for everyone from agents and other members of the PR world to mums and dads who want to be sure of great painting at their parties.

Members have to pass a certification assessment in order to join, and this ensures that all FACE Members have reached a set standard of proficiency and health & hygiene knowledge. Members also abide by a Code of Practice and Code of Conduct which is available from the menu on the right if you would like to read them. Anyone booking a FACE member can be confident in the painter they choose.
