Halloween Party Gift Ideas in Acrylic miniature on cold press paper
Original hand-painted miniatures have become more and more popular over recent years.
Many miniatures are the same dimensions as traditional trading cards (2-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Miniatures of this size are referred to as either ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) or ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals).
The difference between ATCs and ACEOs is that Artist Trading Cards are exchanged or traded between collectors, but never sold. ACEOs are either originals or reproduced miniatures that are sold.
ATCs and ACEOs can be painted or drawn in any medium. When I paint an ACEO, I usually use acrylic with varnish over it to make the card more durable.
You can see this painting on a mug, shirt, or other item by clicking Marina's Pumpkin Patch.
