Sparkly Sue is the head entertainer at Paint n Sparkles and is very popular at parties and events in Melbourne. Sparkly Sue (or Fairy Sparkles) has 20 years’ experience face painting and entertaining children. Want to learn more about Sparkly Sue? Head to the about page. We also have a large team available for parties and entertainment in Melbourne. So, if Sparkly Sue is already booked, we can send you an alternative advanced entertainer.

One of the things we strive to at paint n Sparkles is the quality of entertainers we send out. We only use advanced entertainers in Melbourne who have years of experience and are reliable. We never send out new entertainers or low-quality art. This sets us apart from other companies who may be cheaper, but their entertainers are also lower quality.

Face Painting

Face painting is always popular and is a great choice for keeping the little ones entertained at your next birthday party or event.

We love meeting all the children and families at parties and events, transforming them into their favourite characters, animals or mythical creatures.  Let us amaze them with sparkly fairies, scary tigers, and beautiful butterflies. We also have a selection board to help children pick their face painting.

We bring everything that is needed for face painting – professional high class face paint set ups, table and chair and water. All we require is shelter from the sun or rain ideally under a gazebo or umbrella.

We adhere to strict hygiene practices while face painting and follow a strict COVID safe plan in line with the beauty industry. We use a clean sponge and brushes for every child, use clean water for all children, and use cue tips for lips. We also keep our workspaces clean and tidy to ensure our artists and customers are kept safe.

We can face paint 10-12 full face designs an hour. We can also offer quicker designers so we can paint more children. Please discuss your needs with Sparkly Sue.

The Paint n Sparkles team only use professional high quality face paints and cosmetic grade glitter that is safe around the eyes. We use a selection of Face paints Australia, Tag, Mehron, and Paradise face paints.
