How to paint a dolls house street scene :: Posted by: Hazel on April 13th, 2020

Painting A Dollhouse Miniature Street Landscape Window shopping dolls house picture

Window Shopping

Today I thought I would paint a street scene, I have painted this type of pictures in the past and I do love the challeng.

As I was painting this piece seemed to evolve and I’m calling it “Window Shopping” the lady is out walking her dog and looking at the dresses in the boutique windows.

It’s set in Spring and the blossom is in the tree and the window boxes are trailing pretty flowers.

On Display in The Gallery

The finished piece is shown here on display in my miniature 1:12th Art Gallery. It is 1 5/8th by 2 3/4 inches in size, painted on semi sheen card in encaustic wax paint.

I took some photographs as I started and then got a little carried away so the progress jumps a bit, but I hope you can see how it was painted.

Video Demonstration Painting Encaustic Art Dollhouse Flower Basket :: Posted by: Hazel on August 9th, 2019

Painting in Encaustic Wax in Miniature

Flower basket dollhouse painting
This what I’ve been getting up to today …..

Finishing my latest painting, a floral basket arrangement. This painting would be great in a period dollhouse or as a retro or vintage painting in a more modern miniature property

Video of me Painting

While I painted the final part of this miniature painting my husband Adrian filmed me, as it’s always fun to see how people create their work isn’t it

You can see in the film, I’m using encaustic wax paint and specialist encaustic tools to paint with. These tools have been adapted for me so I can paint tiny. The way I paint Is similar to painting with a knife at times but the wax is solid until I heat it. I use the ArtsEncaustic brand.

The painting is 2 x 2 1/2 inches in size and is now listed for sale in my Etsy store.

The snippets of me painting may jump about a bit ….. we had several goes as the noise in the background meant we had to stop a few times.

This what I’ve been getting up to today …..Finishing my latest painting a floral basket arrangement. This painting…

How to paint a dolls house miniature painting :: Posted by: Hazel on March 13th, 2019

How this went from this to this dollhouse art

How I painted this dolls house miniature painting

I’ve been taking some step by step photos of how I painted this new floral arrangement miniature dollhouse painting.

As I am an encaustic artist, painting using heat tools it was not easy to paint and hold the camera!

The stages of my latest miniature painting

You can see the stages as I layered the wax paint, I started with an Encaustic gloss card with was cream colour, layering gold wax to start the background.

Putting in the basis of the basket and then the leaves and the flowers, the edge is painted on in a silver wax paint to give a nice finish and highlight to the piece.

The painting then gets a light polish with a soft cloth, painting the wax is Matt in finish this little polish brings the depth and sheen to life.

This painting is in a Streets Ahead frame and shown here in my own 1:12th Gallery.
