Flowers For The Lady :: Posted by: Hazel on July 3rd, 2013

New Paintings : Flowers For The Lady

I have recently had lots of comments about my Lady paintings, it all started a year ago when I painted a series of “Lady” style paintings for an Art In Wax Exhibit, which can be viewed “Lady Day Fashion” since then I have painted several different styles of Lady, several of which have been sold.

These new pictures have a theme as each are holding flowers ……

How I Paint My Encaustic Daisy :: Posted by: Hazel on October 15th, 2011

How I paint an Encaustic Daisy

Daisies are one of my favourite shape of flower, and lots of flowers have this shape, Asters, Sunflowers, Cone flowers, and of course the beautiful Marguerite daisy, which comes in many colours and looks wonderful in great swaves.

The daisy features a lot in Art In Wax, it is the basis for the logo, website design and blog theme, it is also one of the first flowers I painted in encaustic wax. So I thought this would make a great demonstration of how I paint in wax.

My husband Adrian has taken a series of photos of the stages and hopefully you can see how I work, bringing together the coloured wax to form this cute little picture of a daisy.

Tools and Materials I used :
Encaustic Iron
Encaustic Gloss Paper A6 size
Encaustic Wax – Colours : White, Pastel Mint, Leaf Green, Mid Yellow and Orange
Scribing Tool
Tissues
Polishing Cloth

Background
The first thing I do is create a light background for the painting. I coat the iron with White wax and add two small bands of the Pastel Mint wax and with one passing onto the card create a light background.

Stem and Leaves
Using the edge of the iron with some of the green wax, I make one stroke to create the stem, the leaves are then pushed out from the base of the stem to create two leaf shapes.

Petals
I use the tip of the iron and add a small ring of Yellow wax in drops to the card about where I imagine the top of the diasy will be. The petals are formed by gently pushing the wax drops into a petal shapes.
The number of petals varies every time I do this and can depend on how the wax flows.

Center – Seed Head
Next comes the center of the daisy, I use the tip of the iron and some Orange wax to form a small round just touching the Yellow of the petals, being careful not to bleed the Orange into the Yellow too much. Although when this happens it can give a nice Orange stripe to the finished flower.

Finishing
The wax has a light polish and I add a few dots with the scribing tool to the edge of the flower head for a little bit of texture.

Just need to sign it into the wax and I’m all done!

More demonstrations in the future

I hope you like this little demonstration of encaustic art, we hope to create some videos in the coming months to demonstrate how I paint in action!

Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on September 21st, 2011

New Website and now my stationary

Leaflet and Business Cards


I was recently asked if I had any literature about Art In Wax, to which I naturally replied yes its all online on our website. As a web designer for business, Adrian (my husband) and I built this website as a natural progression to display my artwork, however this made me realise that I needed some hard copy literature too.

So I set to work this week and have designed a business card and leaflet for Art In Wax, the artwork was send to the printers on Monday and I have just had an email from UPS to say they will be delivered today. Exciting stuff!
