The stages of a tiny Triptych by Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield
African Landscape Sunset Dolls House Painting
I thought it might be of interest to show the stages of my latest Triptych miniature painting.
I paint using heat tools and specialist encaustic wax paints.
I started with cutting the specialist encaustic gloss painting card into the size I wanted in this case each piece is 2 1/4 x 1 inch.
Using a mix of red, orange and yellow wax paints I paint the sunset sky using a combination of my iron shaped stylus tool and hot air.
Then the landscape and trees start to form, the lake has a reflection of the sun setting sky and as the landscape evolved the path the ladies carring their goods, perhaps clothes and a urn for water the foreground takes shape.
Once completed I have given the painting a light polish with a cloth. I don’t use polish, varnish or sealer, just a light buff up with a soft cloth. This brings out the sheen of the wax.
I hope you like this little painting it is a dolls house size miniature.
My Miniature paintings are collectible miniature art –
Not a toy and not suitable for children.

Inspiration : My Dolls House size Art
My miniature paintings especially my tiny “Dolls House Art” are very popular, I am proud that in the past few years several hundred of my small paintings have travelled to new dolls house homes and miniature collections across the world, I still paint larger pieces and these too continue to be as popular as ever.
I have, painted miniature versions of my larger pieces of art at different times, all my art is original, some inspired by nature and some just from my imagination. I don’t create prints or paint reproductions. Some of my art has a theme but no two paintings are them same even if in a similar theme.
I have sold larger pieces and miniature similar versions, which have been sold as sets, “one for you home and one for your dollhouse” !! I have also sold a few of these my “miniature meets wall art” paintings, in the same theme as this collection, so I thought it would be fun to work on a collection in this style for an exhibit feature, and as you can see below this is what I came up with ….
These paintings are for sale, this are painted on encaustic gloss card and backed with a coloured card, they are signed on the back and are £10 each plus postage and packaging.
Vintage Car Landscape Miniature Art By miniature artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on June 9th, 2016
Vintage Car Landscape
New Miniature Art
With father’s day approaching I thought I would try something different, so this miniature painting is for my Dad.
Its a landscape with a green vintage car, its not a specific car, we can in trouble saying its based on this or that but its in the style of a vintage car and my Dad will know what I was implying !!!
I have painted the picture on my encaustic card then layered it onto a linen textured card to give the effect of a mount then it has been framed in a handmade wooden frame (I recently commissioned this and several other frames in different sizes, colours and styles from a craftsman here in the UK).
This frame is 3 x 4 inches, black painted wood and has a recess so it looks like a box frame. I don’t normally add any covering to my miniature paintings but this frame has a perfex front. As the box of the frame is deep and the painting texture not too high in this picture the covering doesn’t come near the wax paint. As with most painting medium it is recommended that the picture does NOT touch the glass, with all my paintings, large or in miniature I recommend that if you are going to frame a piece of Art In Wax you ensure that the painting is mount in such a way that the glass does not touch the wax, equally I personally feel they look great without a covering at all, as the wax has a lovely texture and sheen.
This painting is not for sale as its for my Dad, but don’t forget I paint commissions too
