Busydays are a professional face painting company based in West Sussex. As a family run, service driven business we strive to offer an easy, safe and professional service. We have spent the last 10 years building our excellent reputation in event and party face painting. We offer a range of packages that include face painting, basic balloon modelling, glitter and gems (including biodegradable glitter!).
