General FAQ

How much paint will I use?

You should plan on at least 3 bottles of paint per person but, how much you use is really up to you.

Will the paint stain my clothing?

It may! We use high quality paint so it glows bright in the black light and creates a vibrant design on your canvas. We have caps, ponchos, and shoe covers to help with the mess for $1/each.

Will the paint stain my body or hair?

No. It will wash off easily in the shower at your home.

Do you have clean up areas?

We have a sink and paper towels for you to use. These are only meant to be used to wash your hands and face. It is not intended for a FULL BODY WASH. You will NOT be able to get 100% clean. After you wash yourself, the blacklight will still show a bit of paint residue that you will not be able to see in white light. If you are concerned about mess then we recommend the use of shower caps, ponchos and shoe covers.

Will the paint get in my car?

It could and it is up to you to protect it. We do have free plastic for you to use to cover your seats. Although the paint can stain some fabrics, it does wash off of most non porous materials with soap and water.
