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.
Lesley in Scotland
I have 4 paintings done by Hazel Rayfield Scottish thistles and Highland cow they are fabulous I would highly recommend her
Amanda in Leeds
I have two of Hazel Rayfields painting and they are absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend her if you want something beautiful. Hazel did a commissioned painting for me and I’m sure if you asked her, she would be happy to do a special painting for you too
Sasha comments on my video
Absolutely fascinating to watch this video and gain a glimpse of what is involved with hot wax painting. Thank you so much for sharing it.
Veronica In Wales
To day I received the commissioned painting of a winter screen pictured above, and WOW WOW WOW its beauty blew me away. I cried when I saw it it is out of this world. I’m no conocer but I know what I like.
Hazel is a master of wax art and I would have no hesitation in recommending her work to anyone.
Thank you Hazel so much

Allium Landscape Art In Wax by Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on December 29th, 2015
Allium Landscape – last post of 2015
My newest painting – Art In Wax
I feels only right to make the last blog post of 2015 about the last painting of 2105, this is my latest piece of Art in Wax finished today, it is a colorful landscape in encaustic wax on specialist gloss card and is a large piece at A3 in size.
Alliums are one of my favorite flowers, I hope you like the painting, please feel free to leave me a comment below …..
Alliums, also known as ornamental onions, are grown for their showy flower heads, which come in wide range of sizes and shades of blue, purple, white and yellow. Even when the plants die back, the dried flower heads look attractive in the garden, or can be cut for indoor display.

4 years of Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on March 31st, 2015
Art In Wax 4 years on …..
Next weekend sees the 4th year anniversary of when I started to paint in wax. Blocks of Encaustic wax and heats tools were ordered and were delivered on the 5th April 2011, as it is also the date of Tax year end here in the UK it is an easy to remember date! I now have a wide and varied collection of heat tools, including several irons and stylus tools, my hotplate and heated air tool….. plus lots and lots of wax !
Art In Wax Evolving
My style and methods of working and painting in wax medium have evolved and developed over the years and my passion as an Encaustic artist has grown and grown.
Likewise, the Art In Wax website has expanded and now has Exhibiton pages which feature some of my painting subject series, we also have more shop sections for buying art direct from me the artist, including, a Wall Art section, and ACEO and a Miniature Dolls House Art section, plus the latest addition an Events page, which has information on the Events that we are attending to show my art, mostly miniature fairs at the moment, as this area of Art In Wax is where the most expansion has taken place, with miniature pieces of my Art now in many countries on three continents worldwide.
I have been painting in miniature a long time, with my ACEO (Art Card Editions and Originals) being very popular and in many collections and in 2013 I was asked to paint a commission for a lady who owns some of my larger art to paint a set of paintings tiny for her Dolls House, I then blogged about them, and that lead to more sales, then a feature in Dolls House and Miniature Scene magazine and now I sell as many Dolls House paintings as any other size. And since we started taking my Dolls House art to Dolls House and Miniatures fairs at the end of last year they have become even more popular.
I blogged about the first Dolls House fair here : www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/miniature-dolls-house-art-fair/
I may be a miniaturist artist at times but I still paint large and recently have been painting some even larger pictures as my A3 size pieces have been more popular than ever in 2015.
The Future @ Art In Wax
I have lots of plans for new paintings and expanding my range of painting subjects, this year, has seen lots of new themes, from flowers I haven’t painted before, to miniature steam trains and gypsy caravans in landscapes, from my tree of life series exhibition to unusual commissions : a silver tree on black, a bluebell cottage, pretty blue butterflies and pink lilies to name just a few.
