As it has always been the safety and security of our clients. WFA Face and Body Art take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. This is my normal procedure after each event; I am just publicly posting this to my blog because of the Coronavirus strain known as COVID-19 virus prevention. I just want you my client to be confident about how clean my kits are, and how sanitary my business practice is. I just thought I would take this time to educate my clients on what products I use in my business to keep you safe and your loved ones safe.
This is why I call myself a professional face painter because this is my profession. I’ve always followed strict hygiene standards. I also post on my menu board and all around me kits, that I will not paint on anyone that appears sick. This is why it is so important to hire a professional face painter over a hobbyist painter. I am constantly learning and growing. As a client/parent you are not aware of the face and body art industry and why would you?
In WFA face and body art headquarters after each job I wash my equipment thoroughly. My sponges are washed on a high heat in the washing machine and then dried thoroughly. All of my paint brushes are soaked and cleaned. Insuring my kit is ready for the next event. I tend to be an over packer with sanitizing products but now with this virus I believe that full transparency is far more comforting to my clients. I think after this post it will relax you and make you happy.
A complaint I sometimes get. This face painting line is taking too long!?
1. I have rinse water that I refresh regularly.
2. I rinse out each of my paint brushes after each child.
3. I wipe down my face painting kit with disinfectant.
4. I use only professional-grade face paint/makeup that has been manufactured to be antimicrobial.
5. I’m sorry It’s our company policy that we have to take regularly scheduled sanitation breaks. I just need to give things a quick spritz of disinfectant.
6. I spray "brush bath" (a water sanitizer) on all of my paints, brushes, and I add "brush bath" to my rinse water I also spray it on my sponges as an extra precaution.
Yes this causes me an extra step and slows me down BUT it provides a healthy working environment for both our clients and myself. Because I want for you to rest knowing that my kits have been cleaned and sterilized. I want for everyone to be safe. I don’t want to be carrying germs and spreading germs. Being sanitary in my line of work is SO IMPORTANT!
On a regular basis I will not paint anyone that appears sick. When I refuse to paint your child please do not get mad at me this is why. It’s against my company policy for your safety as well as mine. I am taking lots of precautions to be really sanitary. I always carry a few stickers and temporary tattoos with me to offer to the child (My over packed kits ;-})
Take a look around my website this is why I have so much information on my website because I like for my website to be as informative as possible to my clients. Thank you for reading and have a colorful day!
