size question

Post by allparties on Wed Mar 18, 2009 12:07 pm

Ok not sure if the title matches my question or not but I am wondering how you determine the three different sizes of face painting for prices.

Cheek art is obvisouly what is says, a small piece on the cheek, hand or arm

Half face - now what do you think is half face? Are masks?

Full face - I can see that a tiger is a full face but what about if you do something like a dog with the ears, nose and mounth but nothing on the cheeks?

Here are a few pictures that I would like to know what you all think or would price them as.

Ok I can't seem to post pictures so can you please post what you think would represent each.

Thanks so much

Okay. Im assuming that this would be for events. I tried this same method and was stuck to, so on the last event I just posted a sign that said face painting $1-$7 and on my choice book using small labels price each according to design. It made things a lot easier for me. I know it doesnt answer your question, but it gives another option.

What I've done is, instead of describing them by size, I have my pictures labelled with an A or a B and my sign then says "A" designs $5, "B" designs $8

Hope that helps a little?

I price my designs not according to size, but to how long it takes me to do them. So sometimes a larger design would be in the mid-price range, and sometimes cheek art is in the upper range. No one questions the prices and this way I'm not irritated doing a thousand complicated cheek art designs for $3.

I agree with Angie...sometimes a small 'but highly detailed' cheek art can take much longer than a full face design.

I'd label them according to how long it takes you to paint them, not just by size. Very Happy

Good Luck!

Angie, say for instance in your album you have a Zebra, is that a half face or a full face. Then the ogre eyes, what you say for that one?

Sorry for the questions I just want to make sure I have things right.

I'd have the zebra priced as a full face, because it takes a long time to do, and also because it does take up a good portion of the face. The ogre would be a half face. It's super quick.

If I were to price according to size, here's how I'd do it: Anything small (3 sq inches or less) of course would be cheek art. Anything that extends over 1/3 of the face would be a half face. This would be something like a crown, and ogre, something across the forehead, over the mouth like a frog, or down one side of the face, etc. Then a full face would be anything more than 1/3 of the face. A butterfly, elaborate mask, my zebra, cat faces, batman or spiderman eyes, and others. Even though a mask doesn't cover the entire face, it's more than a "half face" because it takes up over a large area of the face. That sounds confusing, but it's a good way to decide which category designs fall into.

Cheek Art (or lower priced):
Small Flowers
Small Butterflies
Dolphins
Cherries
Simple Mustaches
Etc

Half Face (or mid-priced):
Crowns
One-Eye Designs
Ogres
Frog Mouths
Snakes (that twine around the ear and down face)
Any small design that includes lips being painted
Pirate Patchs
Etc

Full Face (or upper-priced):
Cats
Dogs
Butterflies
Eye masks
Spiderman
Batman masks
Anything that covers most of a face

Hope this helps! If you have questions about specific designs, upload them to your gallery and we will look at them. But the good news is that you get to decide what you think they should be termed as, and everyone does it a little differently so there's no wrong way. Smile
