Party Entertainment FAQ's
HOW MANY GUESTS CAN YOU SERVICE IN AN HOUR?
Face Painting: An average of 12-20, depending on complexity of the design. Full face designs can take 5 minutes or longer. For larger events, our artists can offer a list of quick, attractive designs for guests to chose from.
Glitter Tattoos: An average of 20 guests per hour.
Henna: Designs can take a few minutes up to several hours, depending on complexity.
Art Project Party Package: Packages are custom designed to meet your needs and theme. Please contact us for a direct quote, based on your specific needs.
ARE THE PAINTS AND GLITTERS SAFE FOR USE ON THE SKIN?
Yes. We only use cosmetic-grade paint, body glue and glitter. They are FDA compliant and specifically designed for use on the skin. Our artists will never use craft supplies for their art (acrylic paint, tempera, craft glitter and glues). These are not safe for use on the skin.
WHAT TYPE OF HENNA DO YOU USE AND WILL YOU OFFER BLACK HENNA?
Our artists use all natural henna, with no chemical ingredients. Natural henna is not black. Black henna is made from chemicals which can burn the skin. Our artists will never use black henna.
WHAT IF I HAVE A LARGER EVENT AND EXPECT MANY GUESTS?
We can provide additional artists to meet your needs. We work with many talented, professional artists, who offer a high caliber of work.
DO YOU OFFER SERVICES NOT LISTED HERE, SUCH AS BALLOON SCULPTING, CARICATURES, ETC?
We work with many talented artists, in a variant of disciplines. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

The remaining balance must be paid prior to or at the start of services on your event date.

Contact us for special pricing for coorporate events, events with extended hours or weekly engagements (such as restaurant Kid's nights).
WHAT IF I'M A NON-PROFIT OR HOSTING A FUNDRAISER, WILL YOU DONATE YOUR SERVICES FOR FREE?
Each year, Kaleidoscope Amusements offers donations to two organizations that are dear to its heart. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer more at this time. We understand that your budget may be tight. We can work with you to discuss alternate ideas for funding entertainment services, so they can be offered free at your event. Please contact us to discuss your needs and let us help you.
ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL FEES?
Depending on your location, a small travel fee may be assessed if your location is more than 25 miles from downtown Baltimore. Additional fees will include parking and tolls. While gratuities are never expected, if you are pleased with the artists performance, cash gratuities are much appreciated.
