African Sunset miniature art :: Posted by: Hazel on February 5th, 2017
New Sunset Landscape Paintings
African Landscape Miniature Paintings
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.
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 !!
ACEO Flower fairy Painting Exhibition :: Posted by: Hazel on November 11th, 2016
New Art In Wax Painting Exhibition.
If you are follower of my blog you will know that from time to time I like to paint a series of pictures within a theme that I feature on my Art In Wax website online exhibition page.
This time the feature is a collection of ACEO miniature paintings. This is the first time I have made an exhibition featuring miniature paintings.
ACEO are a popular art collectible.
ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals and are a miniature type work of art, an ATC or ACEO can come in a wide variety of styles, materials and subjects. The only criteria is that the size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
Fantasy Art In Wax
Fantasy art is a new area for me, I haven’t really painted very much before this year. With my recent new fantasy paintings proving very popular, fairies and dragon in particular, I thought that an miniature ACEO / flower fairy format would make a great combination for an exhibition.
Flower Fairy – The ACEO Collection
This collection of Art In Wax are mixed media, as I have used my computer to print onto the card a birder and words before painting the flower fairies. Painted using my specialist heat tools, onto a green semi sheen card, in my encaustic wax paints each is 2.5 x 3.5 inches approx.
These paintings are not yet listed in my shop but are for sale contact me to buy direct from me the artist.
To view the full collection of 9 paintings please …..

Miniature Mermaids :: Posted by: Hazel on May 25th, 2016
I painted these three miniature dolls house paintings last week and made a new display in The Gallery as you can see below.
The Gallery is 1:12 scale. Built for me by my very clever husband Adrian.
These three paintings are all new Art In Wax miniatures. Each is an original picture painted in encaustic paint I have layered them on gold card to give a lovely border.
Pearl mermaid (large ) 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches including mounting card
Pearl mermaid 2 1/4 x 1 3/4 inches including mounting card
Flower mermaid 2 1/4 x 1 3/4 inches including mounting card
I showed them in my Facebook page on Monday and they are now all sold and on there way to a collector in Hereford UK
If you see a piece of my art is sold, in the group or my website and would like something similar please just ask and I may be able to paint one “just for you”
I paint commissions In my Art In Wax style naturally (I don’t do copies) I am an original artist and none of my paintings are the same. Some are of similar subjects but each is a one of a kind original piece of art.
Commissions are not much more expensive than my pictures shown online.

Painting this miniature dolls house screen – unique original art as furniture
Watch me paint in miniature
This week we filmed me painting in miniature, here I am putting the finishing touches to a three panel seascape painting that I then made into a miniature dolls house screen, creating a unique piece of furniture for a dolls house.
I showed this film direct to my Art In Wax Facebook page and it got over 1000 views at the weekend ……
It was fun to make, I hope you enjoy watching, if you would like to leave me a comment that would be great …..
Buying Art In Wax Miniatures
I have lots of miniature art for Dolls Houses and Collectors in my Art in Wax Miniatures Shop including some more screens.
Sunset Tree Encaustic Art Painting Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on May 20th, 2015
I thought it might be fun to show my latest painting on the blog today. This is an A3 size picture that I have mounted in a 16 x 20 inch mount and is shown here in a frame just for display.
This painting is currently for sale at the time of posting, contact me if you would like to buy it – it is £60 including the mount and UK postage but not including the frame, I am happy to ship worldwide but that would increase the postage costs.
In large and miniature too …..
As you can see below there are also two tiny versions of this painting, I couldn’t resist painting smaller ones too ….. ideal for a dolls house at just 56 x 37 mm and 28 x 20 mm compared to the larger one which was 420 x 295 mm before mounting !!!
