Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Advertising Board and Posters Dolls House :: Posted by: Hazel on August 13th, 2019

Mixed Media Original Miniature Art Furniture

My latest commissions have been in my mixed media style of art.

I have painted pictures with the addition of printed words in the posts but these two new projects were a little bit different.

The Brief #1

Design a advertising bill board to go out side a miniature haberdashery shop. The shop is a period style and the signs I designed and painted reflect the tone and theme of the clients miniature shop.

For this project I just had to make the advertising boards, the lady is going to make her own frame structure for them to go into.

These are the two options I made so the lady had a choice, she has chosen the ones on the right with the gold colour lettering. They are 3 inches by 2 approximately.

The Brief #2

I was commissioned to design and paint two posters for a performance of the Nutcracker in a miniature Dolls house 1:12th scale size theatre. These are very detailed and tiny.

This collector has several of my ballerina paintings in her miniature Ballet studio.

Mixed Media. Printed Wording and Encaustic Painting

1:12th scale advertising poster and bill board
I designed the layout on my computer and printed the wording then painting each individually. For the bill boards, the cotton reels, threads and needles and dresses are all painted in Encaustic Wax after the print had dried.

The posters are made in a similar way, a mixed media piece of art is in this way a unique piece dollhouse furniture.

The Gallery

I’ve been painting for my own miniature dollhouse size property too. This A board style piece is now on display in The Gallery.
The Gallery is my 1:12th Art Gallery.
A Victorian Double fronted Shop but inside is a contemporary art gallery. My husband built it for me including building a bespoke floor, piece by piece, added ceiling lights and built me easels a browser and some of the frames ……

Video Demonstration Painting Encaustic Art Dollhouse Flower Basket :: Posted by: Hazel on August 9th, 2019

Painting in Encaustic Wax in Miniature

Flower basket dollhouse painting
This what I’ve been getting up to today …..

Finishing my latest painting, a floral basket arrangement. This painting would be great in a period dollhouse or as a retro or vintage painting in a more modern miniature property

Video of me Painting

While I painted the final part of this miniature painting my husband Adrian filmed me, as it’s always fun to see how people create their work isn’t it

You can see in the film, I’m using encaustic wax paint and specialist encaustic tools to paint with. These tools have been adapted for me so I can paint tiny. The way I paint Is similar to painting with a knife at times but the wax is solid until I heat it. I use the ArtsEncaustic brand.

The painting is 2 x 2 1/2 inches in size and is now listed for sale in my Etsy store.

The snippets of me painting may jump about a bit ….. we had several goes as the noise in the background meant we had to stop a few times.

This what I’ve been getting up to today …..Finishing my latest painting a floral basket arrangement. This painting…

Dolls House Feature Miniature Art :: Posted by: Hazel on July 24th, 2019

Miniature Property with my Dollhouse Art on display

Firstly I would like to thank Danielle in Ohio who have very kindly sent me photos of her wonderful dollhouse miniature property with my Art In Wax paintings on display.

I’m always thrilled to see and hear about where my art is on display.Dollhouse featuring my miniature paintings

I love seeing where my art now resides so I’m very proud to show today, pieces of my art in this amazing dolls house, which is itself a work of art, with such care attention to detail this house created and decorated over the past seven years, and I’m told “I’m is still adding and taking away from it today” ….. we all know that feeling.

Paintings On Display

Currently four of my paintings are in this dollhouse, two hats mixed media pieces and a period style dressed mannequin are in the Haberdashery Room and the framed vase of Hydrangea flowers in a bedroom.

Look closely and you will see, her dresser with the yarns, ribbons and the sewing machine which are just so adorable.
