Only if you ask permission. But make sure you have some business cards, if only temporary ones.

Painting for free? Absolutely tip jar. I wouldn't even ask. I would make it part of the deal to begin with.
With a nice pretty sign that says

My Time Is Being Donated Today.
Thank you for Tipping!

Definitely a tip jar! I'd personally ask for at least some amount from the church to cover expenses of your equipment. Or just say you'll take tips to cover your costs, just so people realize that free to them means cost to you! (Although I do paint for free for my own church's Halloween party without a tip jar...but it's different when it's not your church!) Have fun!!!

I also paint for my own church for free. I always have business cards out and my hubby stands by and talks me up to people in line. I have gotten a few birthday parties from those volunteer events too! It also gives me something to put on my facebook page (come have your face paired for FREE at...) and then some of my followers will come out and have a great time too.

Thank you for that suggestion. I am struggling with the same thing right now...a "free" event that will put me out of pocket but will be great for exposure. I have been trying to figure out a respectful way to put something on the jar and that one is PERFECT!

I'm late to the game here. I face paint often for my church & just charge a product fee. It keeps my cost down & I put the $ into my volunteer church kit (only the free church help gets to use this kit & I have almost stopped bringing my own kit).

For your mother-in-laws church it can be a bit tricky... You're mixing family in, so be careful. I'd personally not put out a tip jar at this event. I never put one out at my own, but I'm also in leadership at my church & don't want someone to feel obligated. But, this is a personal thing for me....
