Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Encaustic ACEO :: Posted by: Hazel on September 14th, 2011

Having recently started to show my encaustic artwork online, I was very encouraged when I was asked on a forum if I had created any ACEO’s. Not knowing what an ACEO was, naturally my first port of call was Google, where I found ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals. I had heard of ATC (Artist Trading Cards) and found that ACEO’s are on off-shoot from these, both of which have a long standing history.

An ACEO is like a miniature work of art, and can take a wide variety of styles, materials and subjects. The criteria is that they are 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size.


ACEO’s are very collectible and a popular pastime as they are an affordable way to collect art without needing a vast area to store of display them.

My ACEO Paintings

Following my research I decided to try some miniature paintings. Up until then most of my pictures where 6 x 4 or 10 x 8 inches in size although I have done a few larger pieces. So I started by cutting some encaustic card to the correct size and started to paint. The paintings are great fun to create and I found I really enjoyed painting at this size and to my absolute amazement I sold six original ACEO encaustic paintings in the first two weeks of posting them online.

I’m currently working on more paintings some as large as A3 as a total contrast, and others in miniature as Art Card Editions and Originals. I find my passion for painting with the wax works equally as well whether a picture is large or small.

I will be adding some of the new artwork onto this website soon, ready for the official website launch at the end of September 2011……… So watch this space.
