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.

Original Art as a dolls house Screen
As you will know if you read my blog I love painting in miniature with my dolls house paintings proving to be very popular including my original art miniature screens, these unique pieces of art are now in many dolls houses and miniature properties both here in the UK and internationally.
These are some new screens I have created this month.
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.

Christmas Minuarure Art
This latest blog post features a few of my range of miniature Christmas paintings ……
Christmas trees, snowmen, winter landscapes and even a Christmas fairy.
These are just a small sample, I have sold many pieces of miniature art recently including commissions for Christmas themed paintings, ideal for dolls houses and miniature themed room boxes. Some are being given as gifts to dolls house owners so I’m told and others as prizes at dolls house club raffles.
I love painting commission – I only paint in my style – so if you would like to commission a piece at a specific size and subject matter please contact me for details.

Flower Fairies miniature Art In Wax
The first three sold within hours of me showing them on Facebook. This lead to a commission for two more from America and then another commission from a miniature collector in Wales, and then another order for five more from a lady who collects BJD (ball jointed dolls) who wanted some and who is going to show to her friends and group members when they have their meet up next month at the Philadelphia miniaturia show.
I have also now now sold several more, they are great fun and a lovely fantasy subject to paint, which is different for me and I’m enjoying the challenge …..
Below you can see just a few of the miniature paintings.
