Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Etsy the place to buy miniature dollhouse art :: Posted by: Hazel on November 13th, 2019

A New Banner and New Paintings

Original Art for Dollhouse and Miniature Art Collectors

I decided it was time to revisit my Etsy banner, after all this is the shop sign to my online store. I like to keep the overall look in keeping with my branding naturally but the new blue background and update on the paintings brings a feel of the winter season.

Lots of New Paintings

It has been a great last quarter for my Art In Wax miniatures and many commissions too, my billboard mixed media pieces are proving especially popular for miniature ice cream parlour, some local but many going to the US.

This week I have been  painting winter landscapes, it’s turned colder here this week, so maybe I’ve been subliminally inspired !

Etsy and Art In Wax

Etsy plays a very important role in my business with many international orders coming via this market place.

Visit my Etsy Store @ Art In Wax on Etsy

Not all pictures make it onto Etsy ! I often show my paintings and some times work in progress pictures on Facebook and then they don’t always make it to Etsy, as the paintings are sold direct via Facebook and social media.

Original Miniature Art Wedding Stationery :: Posted by: Hazel on November 10th, 2019

How Miniature Art In Wax became part of a very special day.

Earlier this year a friend asked me to help her create the place cards for her wedding.

She and her husband to be, love country style and with a special infinity for all things “Stag and Doe”. She showed me the cake topper she had bought for the cake and with this in mind I painted the little miniature painting of the kissing Stag and Doe heads. The cake was a silver birch style which you can see in the photographs below.

Miniature Art

Painted in my Encaustic wax paints onto gloss card, the miniature painting is just 2 x 1 1/2 inches and is shown below in a tiny wooden frame painted black 2 x 2 1/2 inches. My husband took a photograph of the painting which after cropping became part of the wedding place card design.

Now the wedding has taken place I can show these …..

Wedding Stationery

As the idea evolved my friend and I designed her wedding invitations to match, and the wedding stationery theme was created.

Using my miniature painting, (a rarity ! I don’t often allow prints of my artwork) we created the wedding stationery design, which was then printed and the bride made her invitations and place cards, layering the printed card on gold and green card stock.

Unique Table Settings

The card holders were individually made by the grooms son, beautiful walnut wood craved and with a tree of life medallion set in. A very talented craftsman, he also made a wonderful Oak centre piece and Pine cake stand for the occasion. The wood was also local and sourced In the Southend and Wakering area by the family as they are arborists for their business.

Original art at your wedding

I’m very proud to have my painting part of this wonderful occasion, we have had a fabulous week being part of the wedding with our great friends.
