ACEO ( Art Card Originals and Editions) are size 3.5 x 2.5 inches.

My “winter Wonderland” style paintings have always been popular from tiny miniatures to wall size paintings, so it seemed apt that my latest series for the Exhibition page would be in this seasonal theme.

Please visit the Exhibit page to see this new series of miniatures pictures on display. Winter Theme Miniature Art In Wax Exhibition.

If you would like to purchase one of my miniature ACEO paintings please visit the ACEO shop page. These paintings are for sale, if you don’t see them in the shop please contact me. If the painting you especially like is sold, I am happy to paint commissions in this style too.

Original Miniature Art A Gift For Christmas :: Posted by: Hazel on October 12th, 2017

Original Miniature Art – A Special and Unique Gift

Miniature Art is not just for Dolls Houses

As you may know my miniature dolls house art paintings are very popular, they are all over the world and grace walls in doll houses and miniature properties from Manor Houses to country cottages and Tea shops and boutiques to Grand houses.

But my tiny miniatures are also owned by collectors of miniature art, I have seen photos of them displayed in many ways, on shelves, on stands and easels, in frames and as ornaments.

I also sell ACEO size Art card miniature which are a special format size art which it 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Which are collectible artworks.

Art makes a great gift for Christmas.

I have been told over the years of many of my paintings (large and in miniature) have been given as gifts and I think this is a great honour to have my work shared in this way.

But Do you hesitate when thinking of Art as a gift?

“How will they display it” or “Where will they put it”, this is a good question, not everyone wants to be drilling walls to hang paintings, so what about a miniature painting?

Not just as small as a tiny dollhouse piece maybe – unless you want a gift for a dollhouse owner of course ? but a miniature ACEO size collectible original art work 3.5 x 2.5 inches or one of my A6 size pieces can be displayed on a stand or mini easel. This makes the artwork movable and as much an ornament as a piece of Art.

Artwork Provenance :
“Definition of provenance noun [mass noun] the place of origin or earliest known history of something:
[count noun] a record of ownership of a work of art or an antique, used as a guide to authenticity or quality: “
quoted via oxforddictionaries.com

Art provenance is the history of a piece of art / painting, and how it was created and the ownership thereof. So buying direct from the artist gives you the knowledge of where your piece of art has come from.

Direct from the Artist ……

As all my Art In Wax have been painted by me Hazel Rayfield you know where the painting has come from and have contact with the artist, my paintings are signed and dated on the back, some also have my initials in the wax too. Each painting comes with a leaflet which can be included in with the gift giving the recipient more information about Art In Wax.

I have lots of paintings online in my web shop and in my Etsy store, so lots of choice, from flowers and landscapes to birds like my new Toucan pieces, hummingbirds, parrots and peacocks, and much more !!! I also do commissions if you want something special painted for Christmas just get in touch.

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.
Step by step painting dolls house art
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.
