We can paint for all ages, from 1 to 115. All we ask is that your child be able to sit by him/herself for a few moments at a time, and WANT to be painted. We will not paint a child who is forced to sit still or appears to be afraid. Forcing a child to be painted will create a fear in the child, and as they get older they will associate face painting with negative or scary feelings. Typically children under age two will not sit well for face painting, so a small design on the hand or arm may be a more suitable choice.

The face painting was outstanding and everyone raved about it all. Thank you for making our event spectacular. We appreciate your support for MS and SMA!

It is never too early to book your event! Our artists are in high demand, especially in the summer months! We have also been featured in newspapers, radio spots and our large festivals where we see an increase in bookings during publications. You should make your reservation as soon as you know the date/time of your event to ensure that it is available. Weekends book up fast with weddings and bridal/bachelorette/baby showers, and especially around holidays, so don't wait too long.



My sons friends and parents were so impressed with the quality and professionalism of Sonya! All of them took business cards. The face painting was amazing and such quality of work in such a short time!

The corporate face painter was amazing! We had about 100 kids at our event and she painted large designs on practically all of the children in such a short amount of time!

Atlanta and Nashville metro Face Painting

I just wanted to say "WOW"! We were all so impressed with the face paintings. I have used other painters in the past but this was the best I have seen, and it was worth every penny to see the look on my kids faces. Thank you so much-we will be calling again and again!

When you hire our painters, the only thing you need to provide is space! If indoors, a place with good lighting is necessary. If outdoors, a shaded area free from pets. Please note: TREES are not adequate shade sources. Please provide a canopy, tent or some other covered area. When the sun moves, so does the shade! We provide our own table, stools and supplies. Activities for waiting children are strongly recommended. An adult should be supervising waiting children to avoid conflicts in line and help the painter keep things moving smoothly, and to keep little hands out of our paints and supplies in order to keep them sanitary. Our painters will not attempt to resolve conflict unless a danger to the child(ren) exists, at which point overtime charges may apply for the time lost in painting. It works best for everyone involved if only a few children are waiting in line at a time.

Creative Illusions offers *AMAZING* full face painting , airbrushing and cheek art in the greater Atlanta  and Nashville Metro areas for your birthday parties, after-prom parties, family reunions, corporate functions, fundraising events, school or church carnivals or any other type of event you can think up! Our designs range from simple cheek or arm art to full face designs. We are NOT just for children's parties! We paint for teenagers and adults, too. We are experienced professionals with talented designs - all at affordable rates.

We use only the best FDA approved cosmetic face paints by Tag, Global, Paradise, Kryolan, Wolfe, FAB and Ben Nye. These paints are manufactured by the best cosmetic businesses in the industry, and are used in theatre FX and movies! There are some painters who will only use Snazaroo paints as they are the only paints that are rated toy safe -- but we don't plan to let your kids play with or eat our paints! Snaz paints are great for beginners or home use, but they are not the easiest to work with and our professional artists prefer to use the other brands listed. All of our paints are just as safe as the cosmetic make-up you have in your bathroom (and are probably even made by the same company). Our painters adhere to the highest safety, health and hygiene standards in the industry. Creative Illusions is insured!

Our professional artists also offer prenatal belly painting and henna tattoos. See our belly painting and henna tabs under "Services" for photos of our designs.
