The stages of a tiny Triptych by Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield
African Landscape Sunset Dolls House Painting
I thought it might be of interest to show the stages of my latest Triptych miniature painting.
I paint using heat tools and specialist encaustic wax paints.
I started with cutting the specialist encaustic gloss painting card into the size I wanted in this case each piece is 2 1/4 x 1 inch.
Using a mix of red, orange and yellow wax paints I paint the sunset sky using a combination of my iron shaped stylus tool and hot air.
Then the landscape and trees start to form, the lake has a reflection of the sun setting sky and as the landscape evolved the path the ladies carring their goods, perhaps clothes and a urn for water the foreground takes shape.
Once completed I have given the painting a light polish with a cloth. I don’t use polish, varnish or sealer, just a light buff up with a soft cloth. This brings out the sheen of the wax.
I hope you like this little painting it is a dolls house size miniature.

Facebook A Great Showcase for Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on February 15th, 2017
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.
