Here at The Magic Brush we take looking after our planet very seriously.
We only use Qualatex brand latex balloons which are made from natural rubber, which is a renewable resource and biodegradable, however we do not want our balloons to be littering the environment.
We do not condone the practice of balloon releases, even with biodegradable balloons, as they pose a serious risk to wildlife and marine environments.
We recommend that spent balloons should be disposed of in a responsible manner, either in a compost heap where they will have the best conditions in which to biodegrade within a few months, or in landfill waste where they will also break down safely.
The majority of our team is based in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. However we do have artists located in Hamilton, Taupo, Tauranga, Rotorua, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Napier & the Hawkes Bay.
Our artists are available for travel NZ wide for a travel fee and we can arrange accommodation too if overnight travel is required for corporate events.
If they’re available, absolutely! If they’re not available we’ll do our best to move things in order to accommodate you request. Alternatively, we can book from our large pool of artists and will book someone with a similar style and level of experience.
Our online booking system allows bookings four days prior to your event. While we do have a large network of artists available, it is recommended that you book in advance.
In the rare instance, if we are unable to fill your booking request, a full refund will be provided and you will be notified ASAP. For our private clients, we do require full payment prior to confirming a booking.

We do offer some premium add-on options, but they are totally optional to make your event experience unforgettable.

Yes, for bookings over 4 hours, a quick 10 minute refresh and meal break is required.
Adult supervision is required at all times as our artists would be focused on child on their seat and their task at hand.
It depends on the service booked and type of event. For face painting, balloon twisting and glitter tattoos: 16 kids per hour with quick designs or 10 kids for full faces/multiple balloon designs. For larger events, our artists can work to the length of queue and can twist simple/one balloon designs to improve queue times. Please refer to the individual service description and select from our options for more information on how many guests can be accommodated for a specific service.
Due to the mobile nature of our service, the minimum booking time per artist is 1.5 hours. Our artists need to take their travel, set-up and pack-down times into consideration too. If you are only having under 10 kids at your party, this would would allow for either a more premium service with each guests, OR allow us to include some adults in the booked time too. If you are having an intimate party, our pamper party or party package options might be more suitable.
Not an issue. We would recommend booking a minimum of 2-3 artists to reduce queue times. Our artists will bust out quick designs and bring limited options for selection for corporate clients or large events. At private parties, we allow for a more premium experience, with each guest being able to choose the type of design and colours they prefer.
Yes absolutely! Our services are designed to be enjoyed by everyone young at heart and keen for a bit of fun! We just recommend booking additional time or artists if you would like adults included too. If things get too hectic at large events and queue times are over 30mins, we don’t allow adults to be painted, to ensure the kids have an enjoyable experience.
