Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

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.

Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield Sunset Dolls House Painting :: Posted by: Hazel on March 23rd, 2017

The stages of a tiny Triptych by Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield

Dolls House Triptych painting

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.

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.
