Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Ballet Miniature Dolls House Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on September 7th, 2019

The Ballet

New collection of miniature art

Dollhouse ballerina paintings

Last week I painted 5 ballerina style paintings and put them on display in my miniature art gallery and one of my collectors asked if she could buy them, so they are off to Wales.

These were ….

Nutcracker ….. a Christmas tree in the background a tiny painting just 1 1/4 inches wide.

Swan Lake …… the blue one with a forest backdrop and a lake floor 2 x 1 1/2 inches

Cinderella …. her carriage just peeking into view  2 x 2 inches.

Plus “Ballet Practice” And Prima Ballerina with the curtailed call.

Great Fun to paint

They are great fun to paint and so I thought maybe do some other different ones, and they are proving very popular ….. some of these are still for sale in my etsy shop.

Fairy Ballerina …… from sleeping beauty maybe?
Swan Lake Balletahain this time with a green forest backdrop
Cinderella Ballerina a tiny piece with a carriage of course
Christmas Ballet ….. perhaps the nutcracker
Red Ballerina ….. taking a curtain call from the Firebird Ballet maybe ?

Commission a miniature dollhouse painting

I have also been asked to paint a couple paintings as a commission in this style, so the fun continues

Any requests ? Please contact me if  you like me to paint a miniature ballerina for you ?

New Dollhouse Original Art Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on June 17th, 2019

New Miniature Art In Wax

It’s been a busy time in the Art In Wax studio, with lots of new miniature paintings, painted and now online in my Etsy store.

I’ve also had my techie hat on, and have now added a page to this, my website blog that connects to Etsy and my miniature art store. Please take a look …….
www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/miniature-dollhouse-art-shop/ and see all my latest listings.

So what have I been painting…..

Well what haven’t I been painting!!

if you read my blog or look at my Facebook page you will know I am an eclectic artist, I love to try new things and this is reflected in my art miniatures.

Dressing Rooms

My “dressing room “ paintings have been very popular and they are such fun to paint I couldn’t resist painting more.

As you can see pictured below there are some new pieces in this style, the two period style gowns in the ladies dressing room and the larger piece 3.5 x 2.5 inches has a beautiful blue cocktail dress in a lady’s boudoir , a very tiny 1:24th scale framed (1 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches) has beautiful lilac and silver ball gown on a mannequin in a dressing room with a cabinet with a flower vase and a mirror on the wall.

Plus new today brides dressing room  with her gown on the mannequin.

Fairy Art and All sorts of other subjects

Steampunk fairies these are about  2 1/2 x 1 1/4 sizes one is slightly shorter than the other. And are media pieces. The cogs in the background I draw digitally then printed and waxed over before painting these gothic / steam punk fairy pieces. Both are holding a walking stick that’s really a wand 😉

……then we have a woodland fairy painting and a fairy godmother, not to mention a ballerina some very pretty flowers, landscapes, and cottage …..

The photos below are how the front page my shop looks today, why not check it out and see all the other dolls house, ACEO and other miniature art available to buy direct from me the artist.

Etsy Changes to Store Display 2019 :: Posted by: Hazel on March 17th, 2019

Etsy changes …..

I noticed today my Miniature Art Etsy store display has changed.
Etsy have been rolling out changes over the past few months and this is how my items are looking today.

Screen shot Etsy store dollhouse

Descriptions and paintings information is now on the side instead of underneath the photographs and there is now more information available.

I’m in the process of updating my listing so they have the best for keywords etc as Etsy search is very important and I need to fine tune my online presence with the changes, but my store is open as normal.

Shopping for Miniature and Dollhouse Collectible Art

Nothing much has changed for shoppers. All items are available! Just watch out to the side for more information including size and terms etc.

My store accepts both PayPal and Etsy pay payment options. Etsy pay allows payment with not need for a pay pal account as they take most major cards.

So if you looking for a unique OOAK piece of art or furniture for your collection or dollhouse please visit https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ArtInWax

Collectible Dolls house paintings : Not suitable for children.

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.
