Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

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

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.

New Dollhouse Miniature Paintings and Commissioned Art :: Posted by: Hazel on October 9th, 2019

New Dollhouse and Miniature Painting Commissioned Art

I have been very busy with new paintings and lots of exciting and challenging commissions.  I haven’t had as much time as usual to do many blog posts so I’m doing one today to catch up and to show just some of what’s been going on ……

 

Stag and Doe miniature paintings

Stag and Doe

There is a little story behind these two miniature paintings which I was commissioned to paint a few weeks ago.

These “Moonlight Landscapes” are dollhouse size, as you can see, on display above  in my 1 12th size Art Gallery, but they are not going into a dolls house, the owners don’t even have a miniature property!

Framed size 2 x 21/2 inches the tiny pieces of art are going to be displayed in a cabinet. There is more to this story which I will share next month, as I was also commissioned by this couple to paint for their wedding, in fact their wedding stationery is very unique….. and I will be blogging about that in future.

Varied and Electic

Last month saw an array of commission requested, all varied and fun challenges…..

Dollhouse paintings
The Donut Hole – The Brief

“Hi Hazel. Could you please paint me a sign for my bakery? It will need to hang on the wall. I would like it to read “The Donut Hole” Maybe paint a couple donuts on it?”

I painted two mixed media pieces so Darlene had a choice and she had the both. The text is printed on using my own design on the computer and the I painted around with my encaustic wax paint.


Amberly Willow is a bjd (Ball Jointed Doll) doll who’s owner asked me to design and paint an A Board sign for her miniature dolls shop, in the style of a specific type of dolls, doll, yes there are beautiful dolls for your doll.  The miniature doll paintings has also gone to this collector in Maryland USA.


The Parisian Boutique street scene, with hat and dress shops in the foreground and the Eiffel  Tower  in the distance was a commission that is now in America and is going to be in a “ Paris Hat and Clothing Store” the dollhouse owner is creating. This piece is framed in a handmade wooden frame made especially for me by a UK craftsman.


The Gentleman Department. These are the latest paintings for a collector of my work, Tricia is building a haberdashery store with both ladies and gentlemen departments, these are the latest additions, Men’s accessories and ties and hanker chiefs.  Tricia properties have featured in my blog before and the haberdashery store will be, in the future. I’m loving the challenges I’m set by Tricia.


Maybe would you like to commission a miniature painting ?

Please  contact me to discuss your request

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.

Swan Lake Balletahain this time with a green forest backdrop
Cinderella Ballerina a tiny piece with a carriage of course
