Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Norfolk Broads Paintings Father and Daughter :: Posted by: Hazel on June 23rd, 2019

Father and Daughter Artists.

Miniature and full size Norfolk Broads cottage
Norfolk Broads 1958

My dad has been painting, as a hobby for many many years, he painted this cottage landscape  in 2003 from a photographic slide he took when he was on a boating holiday on the Norfolk Broads in 1958.

I took the photograph of the painting on the fence in his garden a couple of weeks ago
The painting which we call “Dads Place” is approximately 32 x 24 inches and is actually one of his smaller pieces, Dad paints on hardboard in Acrylic and then seals with varnish so they can stay outside. Some come in for the winter. We jokingly call this his “hardboard art”

My Miniature Interpretation

So this week I have painted this cottage landscape picture, well my interpretation of it, in my style using my Encaustic paint and in miniature of course. My piece is 2 3\4 inches by 1 3/4 inches approximately.

If you have read my blog or Facebook feed, you will know I don’t paint copies of paintings, all my work is original, I’m inspired by what I see and what I have in my imagination…. I do work from photographs occasionally and my own doodles. But this was one of my most challenging paintings to date, I hope I do justice to Dad’s work.


My Dad is in his 80’s now and we thought it would be fun to show some of his work here today. So together with this picture in question these are a couple of Dads other hardboard art pieces. The pink windmill is called “Horning Mill” my husband and I actually stumbled upon it ourselves a few years ago when visiting Norfolk, great to see it in person after seeing the painting all these years.

Dolls House Artist The Dressing Room Collection :: Posted by: Hazel on June 20th, 2019

The Dressing Room Collection

Miniature Dolls House Art

Miniature Dolls House Art

Over the years I have painted many subjects which I’m very honoured to say are in homes, miniature dollhouse and art collections all over the world, at the last count in 18 countries on 4 continents….. yes I do have to pinch myself when I say this !

I have from the start painted collections, as you can see from my exhibit page on the website and this blog where some have been featured, my poppy paintings especially and in recent years my fairy and ballerina pieces in miniature have been very popular.

Mannequin and The Dress Room Miniatures

I have painted dressed mannequin pieces for a while now and then earlier this year I painted the mannequin in the corset in the photo above but this time added the detail of the dressing room, this painting was only just posted online when it sold and I had more enquires. Many of the paintings above are now sold, there are some in my Etsy store and of course I’m happy to paint one as a commission if you would like one.

Most of the paintings shown are 1:12th dollhouse scale size, for example the wedding dress, bottom right is just 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches. The painting next to this is called “The Audrey Dress” and is ACEO size so 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.

I hope you like this new collection, please leave me a comment below.

New Miniature Art In Wax

It’s been a busy time in the Art In Wax studio, with lots of new miniature paintings, painted and now online in my Etsy store.

I’ve also had my techie hat on, and have now added a page to this, my website blog that connects to Etsy and my miniature art store. Please take a look …….
www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/miniature-dollhouse-art-shop/ and see all my latest listings.

So what have I been painting…..

Well what haven’t I been painting!!

if you read my blog or look at my Facebook page you will know I am an eclectic artist, I love to try new things and this is reflected in my art miniatures.

Dressing Rooms

My “dressing room “ paintings have been very popular and they are such fun to paint I couldn’t resist painting more.

As you can see pictured below there are some new pieces in this style, the two period style gowns in the ladies dressing room and the larger piece 3.5 x 2.5 inches has a beautiful blue cocktail dress in a lady’s boudoir , a very tiny 1:24th scale framed (1 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches) has beautiful lilac and silver ball gown on a mannequin in a dressing room with a cabinet with a flower vase and a mirror on the wall.

Plus new today brides dressing room  with her gown on the mannequin.

Fairy Art and All sorts of other subjects

Steampunk fairies these are about  2 1/2 x 1 1/4 sizes one is slightly shorter than the other. And are media pieces. The cogs in the background I draw digitally then printed and waxed over before painting these gothic / steam punk fairy pieces. Both are holding a walking stick that’s really a wand 😉

……then we have a woodland fairy painting and a fairy godmother, not to mention a ballerina some very pretty flowers, landscapes, and cottage …..

The photos below are how the front page my shop looks today, why not check it out and see all the other dolls house, ACEO and other miniature art available to buy direct from me the artist.

New Miniature and Dollhouse Art Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on May 5th, 2019

New Miniature Painting

I have been very busy painting and realised that I haven’t blogged in a while so this post is a little catch and viewing of some of my recent pieces of miniature art.

I’ve been having fun experimenting with my Dolls House paintings and Collectible miniature art, my mannequin style pieces, some of which are referred to as my “Dressing Room” Collection  have been especially well received and have been very popular in both 1:12th scale and ACEO size, these shown below are the ones currently available in my Etsy store, the pastel dresses in the dressing room, the bridal gown boudoir are  toy dolls house size and “Starlet” is 3.5 x 2.5 inches so Art Card .

The most recent of the paintings shown below, finished today are the two Street Scene pictures, the Café scene is in a black frame 3×4 inches, some of my paintings this size appear in dolls houses as a statement piece but equally they are popular as a way to own a piece of miniature art. The other street Scene is a smaller piece just 2 x 1 3/4 inches which has a florist and dress shop in a courtyard.

Miniature Encaustic Dollhouse Art

I hope you like these new pieces and please remember if you would like to see more of my latest miniature paintings why not check out my Facebook page …….
