My name is Cynthia Buckles and I have been face painting for 11 years. I started face painting at Pioneer Park in Fairbanks Alaska while also organizing childrens games, handing out balloons, leading childrens parades, and children event planning. I loved the face painting so much I decided to make it my primary profession. I began going to the University of Hilo in Hawaii and the University of Fairbanks Alaska for a BFA in painting and ceramics. Now I am a mother of two gorgeous children full time and a Professional Event Artist part time.
Creativity spurs from many different life experiences and when I face paint I am giving the child the ability to be anything they want. I believe by sparking their imaginations now they will go on to be more interested in the arts and make the world more beautiful.
My dear Alaskan family members: Kristy Adams, Cindy Rohl and Lauren Scarmuzzi have taken over face painting in Fairbanks Alaska for me. I am so pleased I can still have face painters for your events there!
In Hawaii we offer:

*Face Painting and Body Painting with Diamond FX, TAG, Kryolan, Silly Farm, and Paradise professional paints
*Glitter Tattoos Supplied from Y-Body and American Body Art (temporary tattoos stay on the body for 3+ days depending on care)
*Hair Bling - these shiny strands cost 20 dollars per person at the salon in Kona! Hair bling stays in for 2 weeks and can be curled, blow dried, washed, just like normal hair.
*Henna and Jagua ( upon special request as it has to be freshly prepared for your event and it expires)
Pay 100 dollars for ALL services the first hour
and only 75 dollars for each hour after that!
This includes the cost of printing professionally taken photos
at your location with a lab-quality photo printer for you and your guests for small parties.
A wonderful memento to remind them of their time at your party!
I am based primarily in Kawaihae, but I will travel to your party in Kona or Hilo or other areas for a fee based on drive time and gas costs.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
