Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

4 years of Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on March 31st, 2015

4 years Art In Wax

Art In Wax 4 years on …..

Next weekend sees the 4th year anniversary of when I started to paint in wax. Blocks of Encaustic wax and heats tools were ordered and were delivered on the 5th April 2011, as it is also the date of Tax year end here in the UK it is an easy to remember date! I now have a wide and varied collection of heat tools, including several irons and stylus tools, my hotplate and heated air tool….. plus lots and lots of wax !

Art In Wax Evolving

My style and methods of working and painting in wax medium have evolved and developed over the years and my passion as an Encaustic artist has grown and grown.

Likewise, the Art In Wax website has expanded and now has Exhibiton pages which feature some of my painting subject series, we also have more shop sections for buying art direct from me the artist, including, a Wall Art section, and ACEO and a Miniature Dolls House Art section, plus the latest addition an Events page, which has information on the Events that we are attending to show my art, mostly miniature fairs at the moment, as this area of Art In Wax is where the most expansion has taken place, with miniature pieces of my Art now in many countries on three continents worldwide.

I have been painting in miniature a long time, with my ACEO (Art Card Editions and Originals) being very popular and in many collections and in 2013 I was asked to paint a commission for a lady who owns some of my larger art to paint a set of paintings tiny for her Dolls House, I then blogged about them, and that lead to more sales, then a feature in Dolls House and Miniature Scene magazine and now I sell as many Dolls House paintings as any other size. And since we started taking my Dolls House art to Dolls House and Miniatures fairs at the end of last year they have become even more popular.

I blogged about the first Dolls House fair here :

I may be a miniaturist artist at times but I still paint large and recently have been painting some even larger pictures as my A3 size pieces have been more popular than ever in 2015.

The Future @ Art In Wax

I have lots of plans for new paintings and expanding my range of painting subjects, this year, has seen lots of new themes, from flowers I haven’t painted before, to miniature steam trains and gypsy caravans in landscapes, from my tree of life series exhibition to unusual commissions : a silver tree on black, a bluebell cottage, pretty blue butterflies and pink lilies to name just a few.

These are just a few of my latest pictures, which will be online for sale soon – or contact me for more information if you would like them or to commission a similar piece.

Celebrating 4 years of Art In Wax

Thank you everyone, who has encouraged me, given me inspiration and of course bought my pieces of Art, something that never gets old or taken for granted, I am as delighted with every purchase as I was from the very first (and you know who you were) and thank you especially Adrian my wonderful husband, who bought me my first starter kit of Encaustic wax and iron four years ago and has been with me all the way in this wonderful artistic journey.

    I am honoured to own some wonderful pieces of Art In Wax by Hazel Rayfield, I have 6 in total so far which I have put in my doll’s houses to display. The detail and colours in the paintings are done to perfection and catch your eye at the different angles you look at them, they are very reasonably priced and perfect for every home big or small or in my case dolls house small too. Thank you Hazel for producing some beautiful art work.

    Fascinating stuff. I’ve seen encaustics at fairs a while ago but nothing recently. I’ve just skimmed today but I will be back.

    It is an amazing medium to work in Francis. You can even watch me do it on my demonstration page videos 🙂

    I’ve lost count now of the number of Art in Wax paintings I own! They are always superb and look even nicer in real life than on screen. It’s always a thrill to open a package of encaustic art from Hazel. I have several of her larger pictures framed in various rooms and quite a number of ACEOs which I mostly keep in photo albums. There are postcard sized ones framed and displayed on various surfaces and some tiny dolls house sized pictures too. I love that there’s so much choice of sizes, and a good range of prices too so anyone can afford to have some Art in Wax in their lives! Well done on all your successes over the last 4 years and I wish you and your art well for many years to come.

    Thank you for your kind words Margaret – I am honoured to have some of my pictures in your art collection.

    You will always be part of the Art In Wax story as you bought the first painting I ever sold online – a pretty poppy landscape as I recall 🙂
