Art In Wax Painting Highland Cows – First Commission of 2017 :: Posted by: Hazel on January 3rd, 2017
First Commission of 2017
Highland Cow – Modern Dolls House Art
Happy New Year to all my blog followers.
I was thinking of a subject for the first blog post of the new year when I received a commission to paint a miniature highland cow for a dolls house owner in Scotland, so I thought the first commission of the year would make a great first blog post of 2017.
Commissioned Art For Modern Dolls House
The miniature collector asked if I could paint a highland Cow picture for her dolls house, as this is a her favourite animal and she has several pictures in her home and it would be fun to have a miniature painting for her miniature property.
I painted two for choice and she has order both, the landscape has the cow in a heather filled grassland, this is an impressionist piece and has been supplied in a black wooden frame size 3 x 4 inches. The other piece of art is a on encaustic cream gloss card and is a modern, more of a portrait style just 2 1/2 inches high.
The photos shown here are on display in my own miniature property : The Gallery which is my 1:12 scale art gallery.

Step by step – painting a miniature dolls house art in wax :: Posted by: Hazel on July 21st, 2016
Step by step – painting a miniature dolls house painting using encaustic wax and heat tools.
Miniature Art In Wax
I thought it might be interesting to show how I painted this miniature dolls house piece of art.
This painting is of a miniature flower pot and shows the stages of the painting.
I am painting using a specialist heat tool called an encaustic stylus. Which I use to melt the encaustic wax and paint and blend with. The papers I am using as a support for this and the other miniatures shown in this post have an abstract design with a distressed styles, it is a Matt paper / card stock from a local craft supplier, the encaustic card I normally paint on is a gloss surface which allows the wax to move more freely. This Matt surface is a porous surface and when the wax is painted on it stays on, it can tricky working so small on this type of support as there is little room for error !!
Miniature Art In Wax- Painting a flower pot
- Using one of my smaller nibs on the heated painting stylus, I start by cutting my card or paper support to size, in this case 2 x 1.5 inches
- I used a mixture of brown, bronze and gold to paint the flower pot.
- Adding some grass to the bottom of the pot.
- Next using a mixture of purple and silver wax I paint the tiny lavender.
- Red poppies are added and then a variety of colours used to create an abundance of tiny bedding plants which I like to think of as in the style of busy lizzy flowers
- Once finished the wax has a light polish with a soft cloth and I have backed this painting onto card stock to give a little more support to the painting.
More Miniature Art In Wax on patterned papers
The paintings have a great texture and the wax paint has a lovely sheen which off set with the patterned paper background has a very striking effect.
These miniatures would be great in a modern dolls house or contemporary miniature setting.
Some of these paints may still be available for sale please contact me for more information on buying Art in wax
