Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Painting a candle in hot wax :: Posted by: Hazel on October 9th, 2012

New Video Demonstration : Painting a candle in hot wax

We have just uploaded a new demonstration video to the Art In Wax You Tube Channel. The channel has been open since January this year when Adrian and I produced our first short film of me painting a Rose in hot wax and has had lots of views and interest. The channel now has five films of me painting in Encaustic wax.

Latest Encaustic Art Video

The latest film demonstration is a candle painting. With the festive season approaching I thought it would be fun to create a short film of this subject as it would make a fun little Christmas card.

The painting is an A6 size, on gloss card using red and gold wax to create the candle giving it a shine, then purple and yellow wax for the base and the candle wick and flame, together with some gold wax for highlight on the dripping wax that runs down the candle giving it a realistic look of flowing wax.

Expanding The Channel

We have great fun creating these short movies, the outtakes (now in the recycle bin!) while making this one in particular film were very funny as once I got the giggles it was hard to concentrate on the wax ….. so we had to have a few takes with this one!

More You Tube demonstrations are planned soon, showing some more techniques and how I like to paint in Encaustic.

More hot wax candles!

The painting shown here with the pine cones is another picture created while filming, this was one from the outtakes ……..

Christmas Card – last year we used one of my artworks to create our Christmas card, view that picture on the Christmas Candle blog post from last year.
