Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

How to paint a dolls house miniature painting :: Posted by: Hazel on March 13th, 2019

How this went from this to this dollhouse art

How I painted this dolls house miniature painting

I’ve been taking some step by step photos of how I painted this new floral arrangement miniature dollhouse painting.

As I am an encaustic artist, painting using heat tools it was not easy to paint and hold the camera!

The stages of my latest miniature painting

You can see the stages as I layered the wax paint, I started with an Encaustic gloss card with was cream colour, layering gold wax to start the background.

Putting in the basis of the basket and then the leaves and the flowers, the edge is painted on in a silver wax paint to give a nice finish and highlight to the piece.

The painting then gets a light polish with a soft cloth, painting the wax is Matt in finish this little polish brings the depth and sheen to life.

This painting is in a Streets Ahead frame and shown here in my own 1:12th Gallery.

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.

Bluebell Wood Dolls House Painting
