The fees per package cover one design draw-up, creation of the design on the belly at the booking and include photographs.
Below is additional information regarding fees and bookings:
ONE: Simple belly designs – are eg’s of cute animals/Cartoon/animated characters, (my favourite) a bright Mandala, flower design, banner/bows with message or baby name.
TWO: Detailed Designs – Include a lot more detail and go well into the second hour of creating a mini-masterpiece.
THREE: Intricate Designs – This can include the complete torso or a very detailed design.
Once this is decided upon, the artist will design what you are after or give you a surprise design. The design only covers the area of the belly bump only.
PLEASE NOTE: ONE DESIGN DRAW-UP IS INCLUDED WITH EACH OPTION. IF MORE THAN ONE DESIGN DRAW-UP IS REQUIRED, THEN THIS WILL INCLUDE AN ADDITIONAL HOURLY RATE – $120) PER SUBSEQUENT CHANGE WHICH WILL BE INVOICED ACCORDINGLY.
Clothing required would be; pants, a skirt or a sarong, that sits comfortably under the lower belly/bottom half, and a bikini top, rolled-up singlet, boob tube, scarf or crop top that easily exposes the belly to be painted on. Block colours of garments such as black or white work the best as opposed to a patterned material.
If it is for a baby shower/blessing way, I do like to begin before the guests are scheduled to arrive, so mum-to-be feels comfortable and relaxed and not so exposed. It also gives the added wow factor as her guests arrive, as well as her feeling of being pampered/in the limelight/special but without her belly out there uncovered and bare for all to see. Unless she is totally comfortable with that. The focus is more on the specialty of having the artwork embellish her belly.
Once the artwork is complete, the mother-to-be can mingle with her guests, and show off her belly while I pack up my gear and set up an area to take some photos that can be used for an album, a wall canvas in the baby nursery, or as an heirloom keepsake etc. The guests may even like to have photos taken with the special lady.
All artwork created is original, though I am very open to inspiration ie. The theme of the nursery, the use of specific colours, introducing the baby’s name or gender, or any particular choice of the mother-to-be/parents can be implemented into a design.
I hope all of your questions have been answered.
