Question for fellow Australian Face Painters

Post by AnnaBB on Sun Nov 08, 2015 11:40 pm

Hi there. I was just wondering if the fellow Aussie's could tell me how much of a profit they make as a face painter? I'm just starting out as a side to another business I run and was curious to know if its a good earner. I'm actually enjoying it more than my other work!

Hi AnnaBB! I'm also an Australian face painter based in Tasmania. Very new at it though and only been doing markets for a few months. So far the most I've earnt is around $180 for 4-5 hours. Sounds like good money but I work pretty hard for it and am exhausted afterwards. There have been many unsuccessful markets where I've earnt $60 or $70 (or less) for the same period of time.

I think that as my business grows I will be able to earn more. I am still figuring out price points for the local audience. Also, for markets, crowd numbers and weather are MAJOR factors, probably the biggest factors in how well I do. ie. my ability or marketing skills seem to be less important than if it's a really sunny beautiful afternoon with heaps of people out and about.

Hope that helps and would be keen to hear replies from other more experienced Aussie painters!
