Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Modern Miniature Dolls House Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on March 26th, 2020

Modern Miniature Dolls House Paintings

In these extraordinary times, staying at home, staying as safe as we can, caring for our family and being there at a distance for our friends and neighbours, we need to be mindful and for me creativity is so, so helpful.

So I’ve been in my studio this week, and this is what I’ve come up with, these are my latest miniature paintings. I love painting flowers and I’m sure I will be painting lots more over the coming weeks.

A New Collection “Flowers : Bringing The Outdoors In”

These four new flower pieces are painted in my Encaustic wax paint onto a mount card so 2mm deep, they have a modern canvas style, I’ve painted the background and the edges have some coverage by the card on the back is white. More paintings in different style will branch off from this collection I’m sure.

Miniature Dolls House Picture Hanging :: Posted by: Hazel on March 18th, 2020

The Gallery Miniature Art By Hazel Rayfield

So today I’ve been in The Gallery……

The Gallery is my 1:12th Miniature Art Gallery that my husband Adrian built for me a few years ago, and as I’m sure many miniature and dollhouse creators and collectors will be able to relate to …… it is forever evolving.

Adrian has never built a full miniature property before, he is very patient and meticulous making a beautiful miniature property that I have filled with tiny pieces of my art. I just love it !!!

As I say it is evolving and I like to add things and change thing around from time to time. Today I have been replacing some older pictures and adding a few in the gaps, there isn’t much wall space left now !

Just some of today’s changes, the parrot paintings replace the flowers pots and the roses replace the vase of blooms.

How about a little tour ….. Please see at the bottom of this post a tour of The Gallery today once I finished my picture hanging.

Filming yourself hanging a painting on the wall of a miniature property is not easy lol

Dolls House Miniature Art by Miniaturist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on March 4th, 2020

Modern Miniature Art

Collectible and “Grown Up” dolls houses comes in many different shapes and sizes and span an amazing array of styles. And many miniature properties are not dolls houses, but miniature diorama, room boxes, and of course shops, which leads me nicely into today’s blog post and the latest display in own own miniature property The Gallery.

Now on display in The Gallery (1:12th)

Very unique pieces …..
I have shown mixed media pieces before, but not often are they for sale but these are …..

Miniature dollhouse painting

For sale contact me to buy £12.95 each plus shipping

The framed paintings are for sale. Easel and accessories not included

how were these created, you may ask?

I have drawn these in “elegant writer” ink which is a soluble ink so when the wash is added it has a watercolour effect they are on Windsor and Newton paper, I then painted layers of encaustic clear wax to seal and give this lovely effect.

Backed in card and framed in handmade wooden frame (made for me by a UK craftsman) the frames are 2 x 2 1/2 inches. Painted white. They are front loading so the painting will be stuck in ……..

Selling Miniature Art Worldwide

I ship worldwide, in fact many of my paintings go to America with Canada and Europe having a few too 😉  About the same amount got to US as UK addresses I very proud to say, I have collectors who often contact me for commissions to, so please ask if you see a painting that is sold and maybe I can paint you one similar….. not the same though every one is different.

Five Miniature Stag Paintings

The Blue Stag which is framed in a Black wooden handmade frame and the silver Stag on a a dark green painted background in a White frame, wooden handmade as the other one are tiny at 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches. These are front loaded frames so the paintings will be stuck in.

The stag on the easel to the right is silver encaustic paint on a specialist black gloss card. And is the same size as the middle Stag which is very striking on a bronze card with a mix of black and silver wax paint making  this a very abstract style. They are approximately 1 3/4 by 1 3/8 inches each

And finally the front on stag, which is on white card and is 2 by 1 1/2 inches in size.
