Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

New Miniature and Dollhouse Art Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on May 5th, 2019

New Miniature Painting

I have been very busy painting and realised that I haven’t blogged in a while so this post is a little catch and viewing of some of my recent pieces of miniature art.

I’ve been having fun experimenting with my Dolls House paintings and Collectible miniature art, my mannequin style pieces, some of which are referred to as my “Dressing Room” Collection  have been especially well received and have been very popular in both 1:12th scale and ACEO size, these shown below are the ones currently available in my Etsy store, the pastel dresses in the dressing room, the bridal gown boudoir are  toy dolls house size and “Starlet” is 3.5 x 2.5 inches so Art Card .

The most recent of the paintings shown below, finished today are the two Street Scene pictures, the Café scene is in a black frame 3×4 inches, some of my paintings this size appear in dolls houses as a statement piece but equally they are popular as a way to own a piece of miniature art. The other street Scene is a smaller piece just 2 x 1 3/4 inches which has a florist and dress shop in a courtyard.

Dolls House Ballerina Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on January 5th, 2019

Miniature Ballet Paintings

Ballet Dancer miniature dollhouse art

Ballerina Dolls House Art

My first miniature art paintings for 2019 have a theme of Ballet.

These two small paintings on the right here; are a dolls house painting that co-ordinates with the the flower ballerinas screen below and the ACEO is entitled  “Ballet Practice”

Original Art as Dollhouse Furniture

My Dolls House screens (room dividers) have been very popular over the years and I like to try new topics and subjects but I haven’t done ballet before, even though my ballet dancer paintings are well received.

So for the new year, the theme is Ballet…..

The middle screen shown here is in fact twice the size of the other two and first one I painted last week. It’s for a 1:12th scale dolls house, I’m calling it “Flower Ballet” as the ballerinas are surrounded with flower bouquets as they might be at the end of the performance. This is a unique one of a kind piece of art as miniature furniture. This three panel screen is an original piece of art, the panels are painted in encaustic wax paint on card backed onto 2mm mount card and paper taped to give the concertina effect, the back has coloured paper backing.  The size of this piece is 12cm high, the outer panels are approximately 3cm wide and the middle one is 4cm.

In contrast the other two screens are for a 1:24th scale dolls house and are very tiny and delicate, with the height being just 7.5 cm and 8cm respectively.Dollhouse ballerina screens

These three themed fairies I have just finished.

They were a commission a lady who has already bought miniature art from me showed her daughter one of my fairy art paintings and her daughter asked me to paint one for her, the mop and bucket was her idea and I know she has a new puppy so I thought I’d do these for her to choose from and she is having them all !!

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 …..
