Welcome to Once Upon A Face Designs! My name is Sandra Cassidy and I've been painting faces
for myself (Halloween is my favorite holiday) and for my children for years. In 2007, I decided to broaden my horizons
and face paint at a local festival in order to raise money for the CT Down Syndrome Congress (http://ctdownsyndrome.org). I was a hit and the rest, as they say, is history! Since then, I've recruited my middle
daughter Delaney (pictured on the rate/services page) and with a little practice, she too is a natural.
In a concerted effort to educate ourselves in the art of facepainting, we have attended the Manchester, CT Face
Painting Convention annually from 2008-2012 and I attended the 2008 On the Road in NJ SillyFarm Convention. At these
conventions, we attend workshops taught by nationally renowned face painters such as Mark Reid, Pashur, Gary Cole,
Roberta Mandella, Marcella Murad "Mama Clown", Heather from SillyFarm, Kerry Ann Smith, Wiser, Jay Baustista and
We use only hypoallergenic, FDA approved
products that are specifically made for the skin. Check out our photo gallery and lose yourself in the magic of a full
face design. Adults and kids alike will be amazed at how quickly they transform. Most faces take 3-5 minutes.
I hope you will consider our services for any of the following:
