Bluebell Wood Dolls House Painting
Original miniature dollhouse art
Inspired by our walk in the woods at Hanningfield Essex over the Easter holiday weekend I decided to paint some of the amazing array of bluebells we saw on our walk. We have been tobsee the bluebells here before but this year they really are out in full, apparently it is an early show this year so we were especially pleased to see them and enjoy the colourful display.
This is my take on a miniature bluebell landscape, I hope you like it. It is 2×2 inches and currently listed in my Etsy store.

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.

Step by step – painting a miniature dolls house art in wax :: Posted by: Hazel on July 21st, 2016
Step by step – painting a miniature dolls house painting using encaustic wax and heat tools.
Miniature Art In Wax
I thought it might be interesting to show how I painted this miniature dolls house piece of art.
This painting is of a miniature flower pot and shows the stages of the painting.
I am painting using a specialist heat tool called an encaustic stylus. Which I use to melt the encaustic wax and paint and blend with. The papers I am using as a support for this and the other miniatures shown in this post have an abstract design with a distressed styles, it is a Matt paper / card stock from a local craft supplier, the encaustic card I normally paint on is a gloss surface which allows the wax to move more freely. This Matt surface is a porous surface and when the wax is painted on it stays on, it can tricky working so small on this type of support as there is little room for error !!
Miniature Art In Wax- Painting a flower pot
- Using one of my smaller nibs on the heated painting stylus, I start by cutting my card or paper support to size, in this case 2 x 1.5 inches
- I used a mixture of brown, bronze and gold to paint the flower pot.
- Adding some grass to the bottom of the pot.
- Next using a mixture of purple and silver wax I paint the tiny lavender.
- Red poppies are added and then a variety of colours used to create an abundance of tiny bedding plants which I like to think of as in the style of busy lizzy flowers
- Once finished the wax has a light polish with a soft cloth and I have backed this painting onto card stock to give a little more support to the painting.
More Miniature Art In Wax on patterned papers
The paintings have a great texture and the wax paint has a lovely sheen which off set with the patterned paper background has a very striking effect.
These miniatures would be great in a modern dolls house or contemporary miniature setting.
Some of these paints may still be available for sale please contact me for more information on buying Art in wax
