Step by step – painting a miniature dolls house art in wax :: Posted by: Hazel on July 21st, 2016

Step by step – painting a miniature dolls house painting using encaustic wax and heat tools.

Miniature Art In Wax

I thought it might be interesting to show how I painted this miniature dolls house piece of art.
This painting is of a miniature flower pot and shows the stages of the painting.

I am painting using a specialist heat tool called an encaustic stylus. Which I use to melt the encaustic wax and paint and blend with. The papers I am using as a support for this and the other miniatures shown in this post have an abstract design with a distressed styles, it is a Matt paper / card stock from a local craft supplier, the encaustic card I normally paint on is a gloss surface which allows the wax to move more freely. This Matt surface is a porous surface and when the wax is painted on it stays on, it can tricky working so small on this type of support as there is little room for error !!

Miniature Art In Wax- Painting a flower pot

  • Using one of my smaller nibs on the heated painting stylus, I start by cutting my card or paper support to size, in this case 2 x 1.5 inches
  • I used a mixture of brown, bronze and gold to paint the flower pot.
  • Adding some grass to the bottom of the pot.
  • Next using a mixture of purple and silver wax I paint the tiny lavender.
  • Red poppies are added and then a variety of colours used to create an abundance of tiny bedding plants which I like to think of as in the style of busy lizzy flowers
  • Once finished the wax has a light polish with a soft cloth and I have backed this painting onto card stock to give a little more support to the painting.

More Miniature Art In Wax on patterned papers

The paintings have a great texture and the wax paint has a lovely sheen which off set with the patterned paper background has a very striking effect.

These miniatures would be great in a modern dolls house or contemporary miniature setting.
