Party Entertainment FAQs

How many guests can you serve 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 from 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 use only 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 (acrylic paint, tempera, craft glitter and glues) for their art, as they are not safe for use on the skin.

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.

What type of henna do you use and will you offer black henna?

Do you require a reservation fee?

Our artists use all-natural henna, with no chemical ingredients. Natural henna is not black.  Black henna is made from chemicals that can burn the skin.  Our artists will never use black henna.

Do you offer services not listed here, such as balloon sculpting, caricatures, etc.?

To secure your booking (date and time), we do require a non-refundable reservation fee of 50% of your total balance.  If your event gets canceled or moved to another date, your fee can be applied to a new date, based on artist availability.  Payment can be made via credit card, check or Venmo. The remaining balance must be paid prior to or at the start of services on your event date.

We work with many talented artists, in a variant of disciplines. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

How much do you charge?

What if I'm a nonprofit 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 so we can do our best to help you.

Face Painting: $150 per hour

Glitter Tattoos: $125 per hour

Are there any additional fees?

Depending on your location, a small travel fee may be assessed if you are located 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 artist's performance, cash gratuities are much appreciated.
