Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Painting in Encaustic Wax in Miniature

Flower basket dollhouse painting
This what I’ve been getting up to today …..

Finishing my latest painting, a floral basket arrangement. This painting would be great in a period dollhouse or as a retro or vintage painting in a more modern miniature property

Video of me Painting

While I painted the final part of this miniature painting my husband Adrian filmed me, as it’s always fun to see how people create their work isn’t it

You can see in the film, I’m using encaustic wax paint and specialist encaustic tools to paint with. These tools have been adapted for me so I can paint tiny. The way I paint Is similar to painting with a knife at times but the wax is solid until I heat it. I use the ArtsEncaustic brand.

The painting is 2 x 2 1/2 inches in size and is now listed for sale in my Etsy store.

The snippets of me painting may jump about a bit ….. we had several goes as the noise in the background meant we had to stop a few times.

Toucan dolls house painting :: Posted by: Hazel on August 8th, 2017

Painting a Toucan

Toucan dolls house painting

Step by step painting a miniature painting of a Toucan

I thought it might be fun to show pictures of the stages of me painting my latest miniature Dolls House picture, this is a first for me. I have never painted a Toucan before.

Being a miniature artist is great fun and painting miniature Dolls House Art in hot wax can be a challenge…..

I do like a challenge !

Painitng a miniature Toucan for a dollhouse

These photos show the stages of how this little piece of Art In Wax came to be.

First I painted the background. I did this using my encaustic iron, using a mixture of leaf green and white wax paint.

Note : I use Arts Encaustic Wax Paints on specialist encaustic gloss card support.

I then roughly plan the layout of the picture and stat to paint.

Painting in his beak then the body of the bird.

I used a mix or dark purple and navy blue to paint his feathers as black would be a bit harsh I feel.

The exotic flowers and the foliage are next. I use my tiny heat tool to get the details and my iron shape mini stylus for the greenery.

The neon pink wax gives a great highlight to the tropical style flowers.

Before finishing with a light polish I decided to trim the painting which is now 2 x 1 1/2 inches.

I hope you like see the process of this project please leave me a comment below.

Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield Sunset Dolls House Painting :: Posted by: Hazel on March 23rd, 2017

The stages of a tiny Triptych by Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield

Dolls House Triptych painting

African Landscape Sunset Dolls House Painting

I thought it might be of interest to show the stages of my latest Triptych miniature painting.

I paint using heat tools and specialist encaustic wax paints.

I started with cutting the specialist encaustic gloss painting card into the size I wanted in this case each piece is 2 1/4 x 1 inch.

Using a mix of red, orange and yellow wax paints I paint the sunset sky using a combination of my iron shaped stylus tool and hot air.

Then the landscape and trees start to form, the lake has a reflection of the sun setting sky and as the landscape evolved the path the ladies carring their goods, perhaps clothes and a urn for water the foreground takes shape.
Step by step painting dolls house art
Once completed I have given the painting a light polish with a cloth. I don’t use polish, varnish or sealer, just a light buff up with a soft cloth. This brings out the sheen of the wax.
I hope you like this little painting it is a dolls house size miniature.

My Miniature paintings are collectible miniature art –
Not a toy and not suitable for children.

Painting Dolls House Art By Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on January 21st, 2015

Painting Dolls House Art

Painting Tiny in Encaustic Wax

I thought it might be fun to show some pictures of me painting my miniature Dolls House art pictures, this is blog post shows a little demonstration of me painting a landscape and a Lady in miniature.

Being a miniature artist is great fun, painting miniature Dolls House Art in hot wax can be a challenge.

Landscape Miniature Painting

This painting of a countryside view is a landscape picture measuring 24 x 38 mm so 1 1/2 inches by under an inch in size. After creating the sky and background landscape I added some darker wax in the foreground, melting the wax on an up turned Encaustic iron which I use as mini hotplate. I then use a variety of heated stylus tools to paint with, heating the wax and applying and painting as I go.

A Sassy Lady : Lady Juliette

Meet Lady Juliette in her pretty purple hat with flowers on and her long flowing auburn locks of hair ….

She could fit nicely into a period property (dollhouse) or a modern setting depending on the setting, the overall painting measures 1 1/2 x 2 inches approx so plenty of room to cut it down to fit a frame maybe.
