I have 18 examples on my display. But I think the nummer doesn't matter that much. As long as you use the faces you are most familiar with painting.

it all depends on what you are comfortable with. and how quickly you want the child to choose.

I paint at one place regularly, with two boards with a total of 50 faces. But it's just recent that I redid those boards, before that, I think I had about 30-35. There are also some town or corporate gigs I've done, that I make special fast face boards for...when I have to do speed for something like that, my boards have no more than 12.

Thank You TinafromNY. Do these new boards have designs by category and prices? I Have 24 quick designs for festivals that  use when I am paid by the hour. This time I am going to charge per face. I thought having 16 for boys and 16 for girls. maybe But I am not sure about prices or which categories have more demand. Smile

My board has 12 pictures on each side (PVC frame). I use it for PPF with 24 different pictures. It definitely takes longer for the kids to decide.
For a fast face event I duplicate the pictures on each side - so only 12 pictures to pick from.
One fast face event only wanted 3 boy designs and 3 girl designs. Give them what they want!

Probably too many! But it gives people something to look at while they are waiting. My boards have probably got 300 + designs to pick from. When you look at my boards it doesn't look like much though. (Wow, didn't know I had so many). I have a cheat book of the same designs as on my displays. I take pictures of new designs I do at each fair or festival that I like and over the years they have added up. It definitely draws them in. I have been at places where there were other face painters and the number of design choices have helped bring people in. I think people like a lot of choices. But that's just me. It's interesting to see how people gravitate to certain designs and then there are those that look at what I have and don't find what they want. lol. One day it's tigers, another it's unicorns, another butterflies. There are some that were big a couple of years ago that I have hardly done lately. Killer whales used to be big, but I think I have been asked to do like 1 in the last year. I started with a small board made out of wood tiles and just did cheek art. That was in 2005 I think. I had about 36 designs to choose from and they all fit on a 22x30 foam board. Now, I have panels that are 2' x 5' that display my designs in sheet protectors. I am currently redoing those boards as they have developed a lot of wear and tear. I only do big events like fairs and festivals. Where I am there is not alot of call for face painters at parties. I live in a poor area in northern Michigan. I think I have done 1 birthday party in all those years. People take my cards, are all excited about wanting it at a party, but never get back to me. Go figure.

We have about 300 faces that we rotate through. We usually don't use more than 120 at any one event. We mix up the pictures based on the event. IE we don't use arm pieces during December and no scarry ones at more conservative/religious events.

I would recommend only using pictures that you have memorized and don't have to refer back to the picture to complete.
