Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Christmas Candle – Created in Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on November 2nd, 2011

Wax Painting to Christmas Card

Unique and Quirky : A painting of a candle in wax!

I recently painted this Christmas candle with some poinsettia flowers using encaustic coloured wax, this wax contains beeswax and when finished I polish the painting to give a beautiful sheen.

The painting is A5 in size and has a great texture as I melted the wax to form the ripples of wax running down the candle.Christmas Candle - Greetings Card This painting has also been featured on TV, you can read about it’s 15 minutes of fame in another blog post “as seen on TV“.

Christmas Candle – Greetings Card

Adrian (my husband) photographed my original painting and we added the “Seasons Greetings” sentiment before sending it to be professionally printed.

This is the first of my paintings to ever be printed in this way and the results look great, even if I do say so myself! the colours are true and the texture of the wax dripping on the original painting has been captured wonderfully (clever husband, knows his stuff behind the camera) and the gloss card emulates the sheen of the original picture.
