Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

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 …..

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.

2020 Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on January 14th, 2020

Just a few photos of the year …….

Dresses and Dressing Room Painting

The dresses and dressing room paintings are proving very popular and are such fun to paint .

I’ve painted many this year as well as Ladies, like these three chatting at the Ball. Others, the gentlemen suit piece was one of a collection now in a miniature property that is a shop with a men’s department. A dressing room for all occasions…..

Flowers

Flowers and plants are still one of my favourite subjects to paint . The pink peonies and purple flowers was one of my first pieces of 2020

Something different and Quirky

I love painting different styles and topics …… sometimes an idea just comes and I am often challenged by commissions  which can lead to new ideas . Painting for miniature and dollhouse properties is so varied and great fun.

This vintage sewing machine picture is off  to Canada today to hang in a dollhouse sewing room in a period dolls house.

I have painted many ice creams and ice cream billboards recently, they have always been well received and this year more so, many of which are in America now, with more than one in a 1:12th scale ice cream parlour so I’m told.

Likewise the chocolates, were a fun challenge and several are in a miniature chocolate shop here the in the U.K.

And then there is everything else …..

I have sold over 200 paintings in 2019 so these are just a taster of some of them, some are sold others currently in my Etsy shop. Ballerina paintings, landscape pieces, winter and Spring, by the river, with the Eiffel Tower, fairies of course, a cup of coffee and cake …….

Plus not shown here but featured on my blog in other posts ….. an Art Deco Collection, Billboards, window displays  and much much more

Video Demonstration Painting Encaustic Art Dollhouse Flower Basket :: Posted by: Hazel on August 9th, 2019

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.
