#39, 40, 41 ACEO watercolors- Sheryl Hawkins

I have had these packets of ACEO papers for a while and finally started using them.  I couldn't resist them when I saw them at the art supply.  They are so small and cute and perfect for doing small watercolors.  I like them for practice since the small size means you can finish a painting without working for too long.  They even make tiny envelopes for them!

...these are so cool. I love how you were able to get "AZUR" to match the contour of the cork. I saw they now even make tiny frames for ACEOs. It would be cute to have a whole series of corks lined up in frames in a kitchen!

Thanks, Kelly! Thank you also for the tip on the frames for these. I would love to frame them and use those mini easels too.

Hi guys, what are AECOs?

Lorrie, ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They are based on ATCs, which is Artist Trading Cards. The ATC/ACEO is based on the baseball trading cards and the size is limited to 2.5 x 3.5 inches. It can be any material, any medium. The only limitation is the size.

ATCs are traded between artists or given away, but never sold. When ATC's gained in popularity, the ACEO was developed because people wanted to buy the ATCs. They the same thing accept one is traded the other can be and usually is sold.

As far as I know are always original whereas the ACEO may or may not be.
