Daizy Design Face Painting - Wellington's Premiere Face Painters

Posted on February 18, 2018 at 5:25 PM

Daizy Design Face Painting... for the best face painting in Wellington.

Looking to add some colour and sparkle to your next Birthday party or event? We have a talented team of professional face painters and balloon twisters who are a fantastic addition to any event.

Daizy Design Face Painting started out 8 years ago by world renowned artist Christy Lewis. Face Painting at Birthday Parties has been so popular at events and parties all over Wellington and Kapiti that the team has grown to include more of Wellingtons top face painters. We like to make sure that all of our artists offer the same high quality of work, perfectly suited to each event.

With many years of experience we are able to offer a large range of beautiful designs, we are happy to be able to paint (almost) every request, making very happy customers. Our range of designs are popular with all ages, we are not just your average children's face painters... from quick and simple designs to keep the little ones pleased to the more elegant designs for the grown ups. Daizy Design Face Painting has always been a hit at Birthday Parties, Corporate events, Public events, Hens/Stag Parties, Fancy Dress, Sports events, Promotions... and so much more!

We are able to paint with speed, without loosing quality. Each face painting should take between 1 - 5 minutes, meaning we can get through a lot of people in a short amount of time, keeping those lines moving! This is perfect for large events. 

We use only top quality products. Paints and glitters that are safe for the skin and easy to wash off.

We absolutely love what we do! It's our job to create smiles, and memories that last forever.

Daizy Design Face Painting is locally owned and operated. We work directly with our clients and with our painters to make sure we are always able to offer the best quality service. We are the face painters of Wellington and the Kapiti Coast.

We are very much looking forward to our next big face painting adventure. This April we will be travelling to Canada to teach at Bodyssey!

It is such an honour to be able to teach along side so many amazing artists! I am quite excited about meeting them all.. a few favourites that I have been following for years. I am also super excited to meet all the artists attending the event! And of course, getting to check out the beautiful country. Banff, where the convention is being held, looks absolutely stunning! 

If you are anywhere nearby, and face/body painting is your thing, then make sure you come along! You'd be crazy to miss it. 

The experience of a convention, learning and painting along side the world most creative minds in the face painting industry, is an opportunity worth every cent. I highly recommend it! It will not only help you improve your skills as a painter, it will fill you with inspiration and creativity. You will also get to hang out with some of the loveliest, like minded people, and create friendships for life!

I really hope to see you there!" target="_blank">Click here to check out more - BODYSSEY

Growing a Business

Posted on August 14, 2016 at 9:05 PM

Some may say Face Painting is the dream job... I can't really argue, I get to go and share my love of art with so may people. I get to be a part of the most wonderful events. I have even been called the highlight of their week. I just love it when you see children who you have painted in the past who are so excited (if not a little shy) to see the face painter. 

What many people don't see is all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. I am fortunate that most of my work outside of the house happens during the weekends, which means I can be flexible with work during the week to still be able to be there with them when they need me.

We are a small local, family run business. Seven years ago I just started painting my own children for fun, we were soon being invited to paint a parties and events and before I knew it I was running my own business. Running a business definitely comes with its own challenges, especially while juggling small children, growing our family and running a household. My husband also works 2 other jobs as well as helping out with the painting and balloon twisting on the weekends. To say life if busy is an under statement.

Running a face painting business involves a lot more than just painting faces and taking a few bookings. I spend a lot of time practicing and working on new designs. I am forever studying, finding out about new techniques and researching new products, to make sure we are always offering a top quality service for what ever type of event we are involved with. I am always on the lookout on ways to keep the business growing. 

There is a lot of time keeping you all up to date on our website and Facebook page. There is an amazing online community of face and body artists that are continually sharing and inspiring each other. I really do try to share as much as I can with you all and answer as many questions as I can.

Not only do I paint, I also teach. There is a lot of time put into putting together classes or online tutorials. (I am currently working on classes for FABACONZ - the New Zealand Convention which will be happening in Auckland next month - I hope to see you there!) And Yes! I am still working on a book (when I find time between everything else!)

Then there is all the boring paperwork involved in running any business (I won't bother boring you with details) It takes up far more time that I would like.. but it is essential to keep things running smoothly.

There are many roles one has to take on when running their own business, and I have really enjoyed embracing each new skill. Not only am I a face painter, I am a manager, marketer, writer, accountant, web designer, photographer, and a teacher, all on top of being a Mum. 

What we may lack in size we definitely make up for in Passion. We have grown this business from a baby and are very proud of where we are at today. We sill strive to offer a professional service, while maintaining that personal touch. We are grateful to everyone who has supported us over the years and we value our customers because we know they are the reason we are still here today.

We have managed to get up another video on our facebook page..I you haven't seen it yet be sure to check it out on our facebook page" target="_blank">here!

It was a fun experiment painting on my own face and filming at the same time, but I ended up quite happy with the final design with the water coloured effect.
