Facebook A Great Showcase for Art In Wax
Art In Wax on Facebook
The Art In Wax Facebook page www.facebook.com/artinwax is where I show a lot of my work first nowadays, it is an ideal social media platform me. It is easy to use, allowing me to upload photos from my computer or phone, giving collectors and followers of my work an opportunity to see works in progress, and new works almost as soon as they are finished.
Facebooking about my art, especially my miniature dolls house pieces has proved to be a great way to share and sell my work online, I am a member of several groups on Facebook too and often I show pieces of art and they sell before they even reach my shops here and in Etsy. Which is great.
Connecting on Facebook
Facebook is also where a lot of my commission work comes from. And it is a great place to connect with the people interested in my paintings and art in general. I have made lots of friends (not just Facebook type friends – but real friends) via my connections on Facebook. I love to know where my art ends up and the feedback from the people I have connected with has been amazing.
These are just a very few of the Facebook comments I have had over the past couple of months.
Alison in Essex
I have brought some beautiful art and my dolls house and shop look stunning with your pictures in. I also have your bigger pictures on stands which made beautiful ornaments plus my frames when I get round to finishing them.
Lesley in Scotland
I have 4 paintings done by Hazel Rayfield Scottish thistles and Highland cow they are fabulous I would highly recommend her
Amanda in Leeds
I have two of Hazel Rayfields painting and they are absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend her if you want something beautiful. Hazel did a commissioned painting for me and I’m sure if you asked her, she would be happy to do a special painting for you too
Sasha comments on my video
Absolutely fascinating to watch this video and gain a glimpse of what is involved with hot wax painting. Thank you so much for sharing it.

To day I received the commissioned painting of a winter screen pictured above, and WOW WOW WOW its beauty blew me away. I cried when I saw it it is out of this world. I’m no conocer but I know what I like.
Hazel is a master of wax art and I would have no hesitation in recommending her work to anyone.
Thank you Hazel so much

New Sunset Landscape Paintings
African Landscape Miniature Paintings
These paintings are 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size so ACEO collectible size miniature art. But these are going into a large miniature dolls house property with is a hotel. I have supplied them framed in handmade (by a craftsman here in the UK) 3 x 4 inch wooden painted black frames.
Original Art in Miniature
All my paintings are original and are painted in encaustic hot wax paints using specialist heat tools and mostly on Encaustic gloss card although I do also paint in other supports, Matt card, mount board and wood.
My miniatures are very popular as Dolls House paintings or ACEO collectibles but you don’t have to have a dolls house to own miniature art !! Looks great as an ornament too and make a great way to own original paintings without the need for lots of wall space

Art In Wax Painting Highland Cows – First Commission of 2017 :: Posted by: Hazel on January 3rd, 2017
First Commission of 2017
Highland Cow – Modern Dolls House Art
Happy New Year to all my blog followers.
I was thinking of a subject for the first blog post of the new year when I received a commission to paint a miniature highland cow for a dolls house owner in Scotland, so I thought the first commission of the year would make a great first blog post of 2017.
Commissioned Art For Modern Dolls House
The miniature collector asked if I could paint a highland Cow picture for her dolls house, as this is a her favourite animal and she has several pictures in her home and it would be fun to have a miniature painting for her miniature property.
I painted two for choice and she has order both, the landscape has the cow in a heather filled grassland, this is an impressionist piece and has been supplied in a black wooden frame size 3 x 4 inches. The other piece of art is a on encaustic cream gloss card and is a modern, more of a portrait style just 2 1/2 inches high.
The photos shown here are on display in my own miniature property : The Gallery which is my 1:12 scale art gallery.
Commissioning a piece of miniature art
I love painting commissions, especially miniatures, these are only paint in my style, I do not paint reproductions. If you would like to commission a piece at a specific size and subject matter please contact me for more details.
