Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Dolls House Cupcake Art Sign Pictures :: Posted by: Hazel on October 26th, 2018

New !! Miniature Dolls House Art

This is what I have been on working on today.

Collectible art for dollhouse cupcakes
A new miniature collection of dollhouse paintings.

These new paintings have a style that could be called a sign or plaque, this type of retro styling is very popular and the twist here is they are each a unique one of a kind piece of art. They are mixed media with a sweet treat theme…… I like a cupcake myself !

Mixed Media Art In Wax

I have in the past dabbled in using my Encaustic paints with other media and these new miniature paintings are a combination of ink and encaustic Wax paint. I used my computer and printed the ink lettering into a semi sheen (and semi absorbent card) then wax painted over the printing, this seals the print into the painting and then I paint the picture, in this case a theme of cupcakes and desserts. These are each a unique original painting. Only the text is printed.

Dolls House Miniature Feature Caravan :: Posted by: Hazel on October 3rd, 2018

Featured Miniature Property

i am very excited to be featuring this wonderful miniature project on my blog today.

“The Californian RV”

This amazing miniature property is a Vintage style RV (recreational vehicle) or caravan as we call them here in the UK which has been created by one of my American miniature art collectors. Darlene has several of my paintings in her collection and this is her  second miniature property project and is a gift for her friend in California. The travel trailer kit is by Green leaf Dolls houses in the USA.

I asked Darlene about some of the elements that she created and she says ……

I did make the curtains and awning from from heavy scrapbook paper and I also put that same paper on picnic table. My friends RV park backs up to Plumes National Forest in Cannon Dam California. The trees there are huge with pinecones on them. I used some of the baby pinecones and pine needles from her property.

Miniature dollhouse caravan

The detail is wonderful and a lot of work and time has gone into creating this miniature property, the RV or caravan as we say here in the UK is set in its own plot with garden accessories and a seating area.

The attention to detail in the miniature work is lovely I do like the hat on the bedpost. And of course a piece of my art features on the wall. The Egyptian style cat fits in perfectly to this setting.

Thank you Darlene for allowing me to share your project on my Blog. I do love seeing my art in its new home.

Yarn Shop Day Southend 2018

This post is a little bit off topic as it isn’t just about my Encaustic art as such……

Recently a new wool and yarn shop opened up in Southend and I am taking crochet lessons with the very patient owner and teacher Corinne.

I have also been commissioned to paint two miniature paintings for the shop.

“Wool Shop Bouquet” and “Crochet Fairy” which you can see photos of below ….
