What ACEO is all about
ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals." These cards have one main rule -- they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches -- the size of trading cards.
The reason for this is, of course, that Art Cards are made to be traded! Cards are also sold either as originals or prints. Make sure you know the which you are buying!! If it is a print, it should say so, and it should be numbered and signed, usually on the back.
Art Cards can be a riot! Artists from all over the world are creating, and now selling these little gems in different mediums and of different subjects. Watercolor, Oil, Acrylic, Colored Pencil, Pastels, Pyrography, Pen and Ink, Sketching, Collage -- the sky i the limit. Abstract, Surrealism, Outsider Art, Impressionism, Expressionism -- every style you can think of -- and then some! Every interest and subject is covered! Extremely collectable Pocket Art, you can't stop at just one!
These are affordable 2.5" x 3.5" prints or pieces of original art which can be collected, traded, or framed. Although working this small can be a challenge, I have had a lot of fun painting some of these little watercolor collectables which can be found for sale on e-bay -- search for "ACEO. " Paint them on 2.5" x 3.5" pieces of 140 lb. watercolor paper and be sure to sign and date them. The title can be written on the back, along with the medium used.
