The Gallery Miniature Art By Hazel Rayfield

So today I’ve been in The Gallery……

The Gallery is my 1:12th Miniature Art Gallery that my husband Adrian built for me a few years ago, and as I’m sure many miniature and dollhouse creators and collectors will be able to relate to …… it is forever evolving.

Adrian has never built a full miniature property before, he is very patient and meticulous making a beautiful miniature property that I have filled with tiny pieces of my art. I just love it !!!

As I say it is evolving and I like to add things and change thing around from time to time. Today I have been replacing some older pictures and adding a few in the gaps, there isn’t much wall space left now !

Just some of today’s changes, the parrot paintings replace the flowers pots and the roses replace the vase of blooms.

How about a little tour ….. Please see at the bottom of this post a tour of The Gallery today once I finished my picture hanging.

Filming yourself hanging a painting on the wall of a miniature property is not easy lol

Dolls House Miniature Art by Miniaturist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on March 4th, 2020

Modern Miniature Art

Collectible and “Grown Up” dolls houses comes in many different shapes and sizes and span an amazing array of styles. And many miniature properties are not dolls houses, but miniature diorama, room boxes, and of course shops, which leads me nicely into today’s blog post and the latest display in own own miniature property The Gallery.

Now on display in The Gallery (1:12th)

Very unique pieces …..
I have shown mixed media pieces before, but not often are they for sale but these are …..

Miniature dollhouse painting

For sale contact me to buy £12.95 each plus shipping

The framed paintings are for sale. Easel and accessories not included

how were these created, you may ask?

I have drawn these in “elegant writer” ink which is a soluble ink so when the wash is added it has a watercolour effect they are on Windsor and Newton paper, I then painted layers of encaustic clear wax to seal and give this lovely effect.

Backed in card and framed in handmade wooden frame (made for me by a UK craftsman) the frames are 2 x 2 1/2 inches. Painted white. They are front loading so the painting will be stuck in ……..

Selling Miniature Art Worldwide

I ship worldwide, in fact many of my paintings go to America with Canada and Europe having a few too 😉  About the same amount got to US as UK addresses I very proud to say, I have collectors who often contact me for commissions to, so please ask if you see a painting that is sold and maybe I can paint you one similar….. not the same though every one is different.

Encaustic Wax paintings in Miniature.

If you have read my blog before you will know I am an Encaustic artist with a passion for painting in hot wax paint….. especially in miniature

I paint using branded wax medium which I melt and paint with using a collection of heat tools. These range from specialist encaustic irons and stylus heat tools, with various nibs and tips some of which my husband has adapted the tips of so I can paint tiny. I also use a hot plate and craft heat gun, all of which go into the creating my paintings in varying ways.

Dolls House Cupcake Art Sign Pictures :: Posted by: Hazel on October 26th, 2018

New !! Miniature Dolls House Art

This is what I have been on working on today.

Collectible art for dollhouse cupcakes
A new miniature collection of dollhouse paintings.

These new paintings have a style that could be called a sign or plaque, this type of retro styling is very popular and the twist here is they are each a unique one of a kind piece of art. They are mixed media with a sweet treat theme…… I like a cupcake myself !

Mixed Media Art In Wax

I have in the past dabbled in using my Encaustic paints with other media and these new miniature paintings are a combination of ink and encaustic Wax paint. I used my computer and printed the ink lettering into a semi sheen (and semi absorbent card) then wax painted over the printing, this seals the print into the painting and then I paint the picture, in this case a theme of cupcakes and desserts. These are each a unique original painting. Only the text is printed.

A Collection of Six New Miniature Themed Dollhouse Paintings

Shown here on display in my Osn miniature property The Gallery which is my 1:12th Art Gallery.

These miniature paintings are for sale ….. please contact me via my website or Facebook
