Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Miniature Art @ Home by Essex Artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on August 23rd, 2017

Miniature Art In Wax @ Home

Miniature Art In Wax @ Home ….. I love to see my art in their new homes and quite people often send me messages or we connect via Facebook or Etsy and show me photographs of the pieces of my mini art they have bought and how they are on display in their dolls houses or miniature properties.

Last year I did a blog post showing lots of dollhouses and room boxes with miniature art in wax on display you can see that post : “Miniature dolls houses displaying Art In Wax”

Miniature Art for Dolls Houses but Not Just For Dolls Houses !

This post shows some more miniature properties with paintings on display and also how my miniature art is “not just for dolls houses”. I am very fortunate to have collectors of my miniature art whom have miniature art collections.

I know from communication with collectors, some of whom I have got to know very well and are friends now, sharing a passion for all things miniature, that my art is displayed in many ways from dolls houses to room boxes and in albums, on display shelves and made into collectible frames for the wall. I too have miniature art on display in this way. As you may know if you have read my blog I have my own miniature 1 :12 scale property – an Art Gallery which is a Victorian double front shop with a contemporary interior called The Gallery. I also have miniature art on display on miniature easels on shelves in our lounge, my office and of course my studio.

Some of the owners of my mini art have given me permission to show their photos here on this blog post today.

Thank you everyone who has contributed. My art is sold worldwide and below are some photo from both local and international collectors.

Lesley from Scotland has several pieces of my art In here house, the thistle, stag landscape and the highland cattle, which was painted as a commission for her, look great in her house.

Alison in Essex has dolls houses but is also a collectors whom love to display my art in different ways has made the frame below to display some of her collection of Art In Wax. Some of these pieces are very unique as Alison commissioned me to paint specifically for her collection….. including a very cheeky monkey !!!

The artist studio set below with lots of paintings including a peacock and exotic birds is not a dollhouse house but a shelf. Susan in Washington state USA has this collection of my art in a very cleverly put together “set display” on a shelving unit in her home. It is very effective and I love the idea of creating a set from miniatures like this.

Jan had the paneled frame style screen (shown below)and asked me to paint pictures to go into it, with a theme on poppies and cakes for her mini cafe.

Sam has several dollhouses and here shows us one of her houses with my art on display. The detail of her houses is wonderful, I especially like the bedroom with the framed lavender painting over the bed and the sweet-pea bouquet in the lovely kitchen.

Toucan dolls house painting :: Posted by: Hazel on August 8th, 2017

Painting a Toucan

Toucan dolls house painting

Step by step painting a miniature painting of a Toucan

I thought it might be fun to show pictures of the stages of me painting my latest miniature Dolls House picture, this is a first for me. I have never painted a Toucan before.

Being a miniature artist is great fun and painting miniature Dolls House Art in hot wax can be a challenge…..

I do like a challenge !

Painitng a miniature Toucan for a dollhouse

These photos show the stages of how this little piece of Art In Wax came to be.

First I painted the background. I did this using my encaustic iron, using a mixture of leaf green and white wax paint.

Note : I use Arts Encaustic Wax Paints on specialist encaustic gloss card support.

I then roughly plan the layout of the picture and stat to paint.

Painting in his beak then the body of the bird.

I used a mix or dark purple and navy blue to paint his feathers as black would be a bit harsh I feel.

The exotic flowers and the foliage are next. I use my tiny heat tool to get the details and my iron shape mini stylus for the greenery.

The neon pink wax gives a great highlight to the tropical style flowers.

Before finishing with a light polish I decided to trim the painting which is now 2 x 1 1/2 inches.

I hope you like see the process of this project please leave me a comment below.

Hummingbirds Original Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on July 26th, 2017

My latest Commissioned painting was for a Hummingbird !!

IMG_1749

My Original miniature dollhouse art is very popular and this week it has been all about the birds ! Hummingbirds in fact.

The orange flower hummingbird miniature painting is my latest commissioned piece. A lady who owns a couple of my paintings and whom I met a couple of years ago at a dolls house fair in Essex, found my Etsy store online and, having seen a hummingbird painting that I had recently sold contacted me to ask if I could paint one especially for her.

I painted more than one for her to choose and supplied it in the frame shown. The frame is wooden handmade frame I had bespokely made for me by a craftsman here in the UK and is 2 x 2 1/2 inches in size.

The other two miniature hummingbird pieces I painted for choice, have now been snapped up by a miniatures collector in Wales :-)

Not just in miniature

Inspired by these tiny paintings I decided to paint a larger piece of Art In Wax ….

This hummingbird painting is also painted in Encaustic hot wax paints on an A5 size Encaustic card support and is shown here mounted and framed to 10 x 12 inches.

These paintings are 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size so ACEO collectible size miniature art. But these are going into a large miniature dolls house property with is a hotel. I have supplied them framed in handmade (by a craftsman here in the UK) 3 x 4 inch wooden painted black frames.

African sunset paintings

Original Art in Miniature

All my paintings are original and are painted in encaustic hot wax paints using specialist heat tools and mostly on Encaustic gloss card although I do also paint in other supports, Matt card, mount board and wood.

My miniatures are very popular as Dolls House paintings or ACEO collectibles but you don’t have to have a dolls house to own miniature art !! Looks great as an ornament too and make a great way to own original paintings without the need for lots of wall space

Commission piece of art.

I love to paint in miniature and as well as my paintings for sale I also do commissions.

All Original Art In Wax – if you would like a special picture just for you. In my style naturally I don’t do copies / reproductions so please contact me for more information.

I am happy to ship worldwide if you are happy to pay postage.
Art In Wax is now in 15 countries on 3 continents – as far as I know !!
