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

Miniature Ballet Paintings

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

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.”

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.
