Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Cottage Collection Miniature Dolls House Art :: Posted by: Hazel on November 22nd, 2017

Cottage Landscape Miniature Art

Dollhouse and Miniature Art

Just a very quick post today as I have been very busy with painting and not had a lot of time for blogging, but I wanted to show my latest pieces of Art In Wax ….

These new paintings are all in a pretty soft and colorful style and each features a pretty cottage in the landscape.

They are proving very popular and this month several have gone to new homes for dolls houses and miniature collectors both here in the UK and overseas. In fact of the five paintings shown here currently the only one still available is the one in the black frame …. but never fear there will be more of these ….

Why not check out my Art In Wax Etsy store or follow my Art In Wax page on Facebook where I show all my new pictures first.

Encaustic Art winter landscape :: Posted by: Hazel on December 5th, 2016

Winter Valley Landscape

New seasonal painting

This winter scene is an A5 painting mounted in a 12 x 10 inch cream mount. It is for sale at the time of this blog post – £35 including UK postage. Contact me to arrange to buy.

I have temporarily framed it in a plain white frame to show how it can maybe be displayed, the frame has no glass, I personally think my Art In Wax looks great without glass as the sheen of the wax paints can be seen much more displayed this way

The frame is NOT for sale. The painting comes mounted in a quality cream mount with backing board attached. This painting would make a great Christmas gift for someone who likes unusual unique things.


Original Art Makes a great gift

From feedback I get from my Art I know that it often given as a gift, many people come back for more after they buy a piece of my art. I have got to know some of my collectors over the years and they tell me that my work of often a talking point as people haven’t heard of Encaustic Art or hot wax painting and are interested to know more.

Likewise I am told they make great gifts, again as they can be a talking point and that they are often something the gift receiver likes as it is unique and original.

Showing and Display Art Online :: Posted by: Hazel on November 28th, 2012

Art Online

How we display and show art online

I have written a couple of posts about how I like to display my art :
Art Display : Beauty is in the eye of the beholder which talks about how beauty may well be in the eye of the beholder, and what we all like or dislike about art is the same – individual and personal choice, and also how display plays a part in this too.
What a difference a frame makes! how displaying in a frame can make a difference to the look and feel of a piece of art.

What people are saying about Art In Wax

The feedback I have received recently about my paintings such as ……

“Paintings has just arrived , and they are absolutely beautiful – the photos don’t do them justice”

“The paintings arrived yesterday and they are gorgeous. So vibrant and you just don’t see the texture in the photos. Fabulous!”

“Got the painting and it is so beautiful. The colours are fabulous and the texture is lovely. It’s really so different from anything I’ve seen before”

…. just goes to show that when looking online on our wonderful computers we can not see the true beauty in some types of art online. I personally feel this is especially true when looking at Encaustic paintings, as part of the beauty comes from the sheen of the wax that can not be captured to its fullness in a photograph. The texture can also look clumsy online whereas in real life it is often much more subtle and gentle and yet the colours more bold and vibrant at times.

New Painting : Country Stream

Country Stream is a brand new painting from me …… hot off the iron so to speak!

It is approximately 10 x 8 inches in size, look how different it looks from the plain photograph to showing it mounted and displayed on a easel to double mounted and framed in a slightly fancy edged frame.
Original Landscape Painting

It just goes to show ……

Even just showing them displayed in a different way can make a difference – would you agree?

Have you seen an encaustic wax painting in real life – they do look different than online photographs.

View more Landscape paintings in the Art In Wax Landscape Gallery and many pictures are available in my web art shop.

One Year On – An Encaustic Journey :: Posted by: Hazel on April 4th, 2012

A Year On ….. And still just beginning!

It is just a year this week when I started painting in encaustic wax. I ordered my encaustic iron and stylus on the 2nd April 2011 and it arrive a couple of days later, and I haven’t looked back. To read my history of art and how I discovered encaustic art please read my artist profile page on the Art In Wax website.

It is a great journey of discovery

A3 Landscapes
Over the last year I have discovered the wonders of working with wax, how this medium lends itself to many different techniques, I have tried many of these and still lots to try. I have experimented with different ways of painting in wax and on different surfaces and materials.

I have started to develop my style of painting in wax and although I still love some of my earlier work I can achieve much more now than then, details and texture are now much more part of my finished works. As you can see from the paintings here, this “Poppy” landscape was painted in March 2012 and the other “Wisteria Lake” last year in the summer time, both A3 in size but very different.

What a lot has happened

After painting for a few months it was suggested that I might show my work and maybe sell some of my pictures, which to my delight was what has happened! and my paintings are now as far a field as the US and Greece, plus many nationally in the UK.

I have online stores in two large retail outlets Folksy and Etsy. As a web developer for my business it also seemed natural to have a website which we built and launched in September 2011, mainly as a gallery for my work, which has already grown to include three catalogued gallery pages, an exhibits page, an online shop and this blog, which I love to write and share all things encaustic that are going on with me and my art in wax.

My paintings have also been seen on TV – Michael Bossom asked me if he could use some of my pictures as part of his demonstration show last year, which was very exciting seeing my paintings on screen! Some sceen shots from the show can be viewed in this article about the show.

More recently in January 2012 Adrian and I created two video demonstrations of me painting my encaustic roses, which are online at youtube and we are amazed by the response they have received.

And I have met (virtually) some amazing artists, especially when I became a member of, an online encaustic artist network based in Canada and other people with a passion for encaustics and painting in wax.

Art In Wax – Going Forward

Next week sees the opening of the #twitterartexhibit in Moss Norway where one of my painting will be displayed as part of a special twitter artist exhibition – more details can be read in this recent blog post about the event.

Popular Crafts Magazine are featuring my artwork, coming up in June as part of their Jubilee issue, which has a photo project demonstration of me painting and encaustic Rose card, which Adrian photographed and I wrote for them.

And Art In Wax is hitting the High Street, April also sees some of my paintings going on sale in store in Colchester Essex – more on this after the launch in a few weeks.

Art In Wax – An Amazing Year

I can’t believe where this year has gone! It has been an amazing year, I love my new found passion for painting in this wonderful medium – it is great fun, I love the way it flows and how I can create with it, pictures unlike anything I have before, the wonders of WAX!
