1:24 Scale Dolls House Furniture

Painting Tiny Art

I was recently asked if I painted for 1:24 scale. Which I hadn’t before, but I took the commission as you may know from reading my blog I do love a challenge …… I painted a tiny cottage landscape just 1 inch by 1 1/4 inches, following showing this I have sold a couple more paintings for this scale dolls house and been asked to do more commissions.

I showed these tiny pieces on Facebook and have had a lot of comments, this has lead me to paint more pictures in the scale and this week I decided to try something different.

My 1:12 (the size I mostly paint for ) dolls house screens / room dividers have always been very popular. Each being an original painting as a unique piece of miniature furniture. So I decided to try some at this smaller scale.

Quote about dolls house scales

“The most common standard for
adult collectors is 1:12 scale, also called 1″ or one inch scale (where 1 foot is represented by 1 inch.) Among adult collectors there are also smaller scales which are much more common in the United States than in Britain. 1:24 or half inch scale (1 foot is 1/2″) was popular in Marx dollhouses in the 1950s but only became widely available in collectible houses after 2002, about the same time that even smaller scales became more popular, like 1:48 or quarter inch scale (1 foot is 1/4″) and 1:144 or “dollhouse for a dollhouse” scale.”

1:24 Dolls’ House Room Dividers

Painted in Encaustic Wax paints on specialist gloss card. I have backed the panels with card and the back has a coloured card backing to cover up the paper tape that creates the concertina effect.

Approximately 7.5 cm high with each panel 2 cm wide. They are delicate pieces of furniture.

It is great fun and very challenging painting this tiny.

Hope you like these new tiny pieces of art and furniture. My Husband Adrian made me this little set up help me get my eye in for this tiny scale. And it makes a lovely way to display the art and screens.

I will be painting more in this scale, in fact I have four to paint as a commission for a collector in Scotland who has a country cottage style dolls house 1:24 scale. I will also be listing pieces in my Etsy show over the next few weeks too.

New subject are always Fun

These Dolls house miniature paintings are shown here on display in my 1:12 Art Gallery. If you read my blog you will know I have my own miniature Property that houses my own collection of miniature Art In Wax and where I display my new paintings for photographing.

Selling Miniature Art

…….. or should that be buying miniature art ?

Dolls House and Collectible Miniature Art by Hazel Rayfield

There are three main places where my miniature paintings can be viewed and purchased. These being ; this website and by direct contact via my website, via my Facebook page and via my Etsy store, which is where I have my largest stock holding and where most of my International sales initiate from, my art is now in sixteen countries on four continents as far as I know !! Yes I have to pinch myself sometimes !!

Whichever of these places you order your miniature art from you are buying direct from me the artist and therefore know the provenance of your original art.

Buying From The Art In Wax Website

Everyone of my miniature art paintings is unique, some may be similar but no two are identical. Each is an original unique piece of miniature art.

As you can see I love colour. The encaustic paint has such a vibrant depth of colour which suits me and my style of painting very well.

My passion for painting in miniature has lend me paint many subjects, some more than others, my fairy paintings are very popular as are my landscapes and flowers.

Floral bouquets and flowers which I do love to paint, pretty landscapes with cottages, windmills and occasionally a vintage caravan or river maybe. I also love to paint seascapes, beach huts, sailing boats and the odd galleon !!

If you buy a listed piece from my dollhouse shop page on this website and you in the UK then postage is free. I’m happy mail overseas from Art In Wax but the postage needs to be added.
