Platinum Jubilee Theme Miniatures :: Posted by: Hazel on May 6th, 2022

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Theme Miniatures 

1952 to 2022 Celebration of 70 years.

London – Royal – Celebration

Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating 70 years of her reign in this country, the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.

A Phenomenal Response

I have had a phenomenal response to my new Miniature Queens Jubilee theme painting so I decided to update my blog with this follow up post.

If you read my earlier post https://www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/the-queens-platinum-jubilee-miniature-art-collection/

You can see the exhibit on my miniature art gallery.  This lead to more ideas and inspiration, plus requests and commissions inspired new ideas too.

Thank you for supporting my miniature art  

I want to say a thank you to everyone for supporting my miniature art, it is my business as well as my passion.

And on this project especially Thank you  to my collectors Sarah for lots of great ideas and to Jackie for inspiration, both of your enthusiasm for this Royal Celebration and the Platinum Jubilee event and your love and appreciation of my miniature art has been a great encouragement for this very special and unique theme.

The Paintings …… so far !

Most of the paintings shown below are sold, there are a couple of new pieces added to my Etsy shop and of course I’m open to requests and commissions.

The Guards, The Beefeaters, Teddy Bears, Crowns of course, flags and bunting.

The street party food, the royal icing on the Victoria Sponge cake, afternoon tea and one of the Queens favourite Battenburg…. All great fun.

The plaque style posters with printed words, sealed in wax then painted over are some of my favourites plus of course the lady in blue walking home with her red umbrella after the Jubilee party (Sarah’s request )

Ask me to paint especially for you …..

If you would like me to paint especially for you please contact me. You can message me via my website or on Facebook messenger or Instagram.

A New Banner and New Paintings

Original Art for Dollhouse and Miniature Art Collectors

I decided it was time to revisit my Etsy banner, after all this is the shop sign to my online store. I like to keep the overall look in keeping with my branding naturally but the new blue background and update on the paintings brings a feel of the winter season.

Lots of New Paintings

It has been a great last quarter for my Art In Wax miniatures and many commissions too, my billboard mixed media pieces are proving especially popular for miniature ice cream parlour, some local but many going to the US.

This week I have been  painting winter landscapes, it’s turned colder here this week, so maybe I’ve been subliminally inspired !

Etsy and Art In Wax

Etsy plays a very important role in my business with many international orders coming via this market place.

Visit my Etsy Store @ Art In Wax on Etsy

Not all pictures make it onto Etsy ! I often show my paintings and some times work in progress pictures on Facebook and then they don’t always make it to Etsy, as the paintings are sold direct via Facebook and social media.

8 years of Art In Wax with Miniaturist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on September 3rd, 2019

Celebrating 8 years of Art In Wax

Celebrating 8 years with a little trip down memory lane …..

It’s been 8 years of Art In Wax online and blogging, so I thought it might be fun to take a look back at some of the posts. My blog has 245 posts and 375 comments so this is just a brief highlight of some of the posts, not in any specific order.

It was September 1st 2011 when the Art In Wax Blog was launched, designed and built by myself and my husband Adrian.

I am very proud to say my art has been very popular and I sell internationally, with pieces of my Art In Wax currently in 18 countries on 4 continents …… as far as I know. The first painting I sold was actually in August 2011 ….. you know who your are …. Margaret.

So on to the highlights …..

I had been painting and selling larger paintings and ACEO collectible miniature art when I was commissioned to paint for a Dolls House and as they say ….”the rest is history” and my dollhouse art is what I now concentrate on painting.

June 8th 2013 : First miniature Art In Wax specifically for a dolls house
https://www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/dolls-house-original-art/

As a miniaturist I needed a miniature property of my own of course !! And September 23rd 2013 I posted about Adrian finishing building The Gallery …… my 1:12th Art Gallery https://www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/grand-opening-the-gallery/

My art and my miniature Art Gallery have featured in magazines and blogs and even appeared on TV once …..

On the October 5th 2014 I blogged about my First Dolls House Fair

I did a year of fairs and exhibitions which was great fun, but as I sell my art worldwide, and the changes to the way we all Shop means I now only sell online, in my Etsy store and via my website and Facebook page.
