Line management with two face painters

Post by fancyfaces2010 on Tue Feb 14, 2017 2:16 pm

I am painting at a hockey team's kids night soon and another painter will be joining me. We are getting paid an hourly rate plus tips. My question is, should we share a table (they can provide an 8' long table) and just have one line, with us taking whoever is next in line? Or should we have two separate lines and separate tables?

If we do one line, should we try to have the same design selection?

Anybody have any experience with this?

I have done it both ways. If your skill level is comparable, I would recommend sharing a line and a design board/display. Connect with the other painter in advance and agree to the designs (yours or hers or a combo or whatever) and who will put together and bring the display.

If your abilities are very different, then I would recommend 2 displays and 2 lines so people know what they are waiting for and what they will get.

There are 3 of us that frequently paint together for big events. Whoever got the booking decides how to do this. Two of us like to provide Word boards in this situation. That way, we put our own spin on each design. The third face painter prefers using a book. This is a little dicey sometimes. Our books get passed around, since we DO have only one line but we can all do anything, so not too much issue here. For a 2-4 HR gig, that 3rd face painter who likes her books (w/the visual assist) has taught us that less is better! Usually, even tho' we have chairs in our cars for back-up, she has taught us that "less is best". Clients usually provide table, chairs & shade! I use my A-frame w/pics only at a LONG event now.
