New Miniature Art In Wax Dolls House Paintings – Period Style !

“The Lady In The Sitting Room”

This new piece of my miniature art for a dollhouse has a lady of a period (you decide) with her sewing and her aspidistra planter on the table by the fire place, this is definitely the Lady of the house’s Room with her pink drapes at the window.
I have layered this painting on a rustic painted card for an antique look and it is for sale in a wood frame, the frame is handmade, especially for my art, bespoke in fact by a uk craftsman. Size 2 x 2 1/2 inches overall when framed. The frame is front loading so the painting is stuck in.

A Miniature Challenge

My husband likes to challenge me ….
And after recently seeing my miniature sewing machine painting said “you could do a spinning wheel “ so I thought why not I’ll give it a go !!! This what I’ve come up with…….

“The Cat In The Spinning Room”

A period style scene with a cat in the foreground and a lady using a spinning wheel in the background, this tiny painting has lots of details and is very much a new style for my miniature art. I felt this painting needed a more ornate frame so it is for sale in the gold effect frame, which is a Streets Ahead miniature. Overall size including the frame is 2 1/2 x 2 inches approx.

Dolls House Haberdashery Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on February 5th, 2019

Haberdashery In Miniature

Haberdashery sewing machine art
A collector of my miniature art, who is a dolls house collector and miniaturist contacted me a short while ago as she was starting her latest project, a miniature 1:12th scale haberdashery, come dress shop, come Ladies boutique, in a vintage period style, and she asked me to paint some specific pieces of miniature art for her new project.

Commissioned to paint for a themed property

So I have been commissioned to paint for this interesting project and I’m having a lot of fun painting in the theme, with an open brief my imagination and Wax has been flowing.

I have worked with Tricia before on her Dance Studio and she has quite a collection of my miniature Art In Wax. These are some of the paintings for her haberdashery store, which is now underway, the building shell of the shop can be seen in the picture above, once the property is complete I am hoping Tricia will let us see the finished shop, with all it’s Art In Wax on display.

Haberdashery paintings

The mannequin dress painted panels are 13 cm high and will be mounted in the wall. The panels tie in with the set of four miniature pieces each with the project theme, period style dresses, sewing, threads, wool and yarn. All these pieces are painted in Encaustic paint on specialist gloss card which is cream in colour. The most recent piece, finished this week is the antique style sewing machine and and basket of fabric painting.

The two mixed media advertising style plaques, are unusual and a unique challenge of their own.

Mixed Media Miniature Art In Wax

This painting style like a sign, plaque or advertisement works great as a miniature for a dollhouse size shop. Giving a very unique and personal feel to the art. I have in the past painted in this style for property signs and personalised art.
The paintings are a combination of ink and encaustic Wax paint. I used my computer and printed the ink lettering into a semi sheen (and semi absorbent) card support then wax painted over the printing, this seals the print into the painting and then I paint the picture. Only the text is printed.

Commission A Piece Of Dolls House Art.

Commissioning a piece of my art is easy …. so why not Contact me and have a painting commissioned for your dolls house or miniature property.

Dolls House Ballerina Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on January 5th, 2019

Miniature Ballet Paintings

Ballet Dancer miniature dollhouse art

Ballerina Dolls House Art

My first miniature art paintings for 2019 have a theme of Ballet.

These two small paintings on the right here; are a dolls house painting that co-ordinates with the the flower ballerinas screen below and the ACEO is entitled  “Ballet Practice”

Original Art as Dollhouse Furniture

My Dolls House screens (room dividers) have been very popular over the years and I like to try new topics and subjects but I haven’t done ballet before, even though my ballet dancer paintings are well received.

So for the new year, the theme is Ballet…..

The middle screen shown here is in fact twice the size of the other two and first one I painted last week. It’s for a 1:12th scale dolls house, I’m calling it “Flower Ballet” as the ballerinas are surrounded with flower bouquets as they might be at the end of the performance. This is a unique one of a kind piece of art as miniature furniture. This three panel screen is an original piece of art, the panels are painted in encaustic wax paint on card backed onto 2mm mount card and paper taped to give the concertina effect, the back has coloured paper backing.  The size of this piece is 12cm high, the outer panels are approximately 3cm wide and the middle one is 4cm.

In contrast the other two screens are for a 1:24th scale dolls house and are very tiny and delicate, with the height being just 7.5 cm and 8cm respectively.Dollhouse ballerina screens

New Horizons miniature dolls house art :: Posted by: Hazel on December 28th, 2018

New Horizons

Miniature Dolls House Art

I truly believe that art, as with beauty, is in the eye of the beholder and with this in mind my new miniature dollhouse paintings shown here say to me, that as we start a new year in 2019 I am looking at “New Horizons” and yet, I am also thinking about my roots and the ages that have gone before.

The strength of the old tree still standing strong, younger trees growing new branches and also to know the new life coming in the blooms of Spring leaves …..

What do you see ?

I am hoping these new pieces of my miniature art will mean and show different things to different people …… I know what I see …… But what do you see ?Original miniature art
