Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

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.

Fairy Ballerina …… from sleeping beauty maybe?
Swan Lake Balletahain this time with a green forest backdrop
Cinderella Ballerina a tiny piece with a carriage of course
Christmas Ballet ….. perhaps the nutcracker
Red Ballerina ….. taking a curtain call from the Firebird Ballet maybe ?

Commission a miniature dollhouse painting

I have also been asked to paint a couple paintings as a commission in this style, so the fun continues

Any requests ? Please contact me if  you like me to paint a miniature ballerina for you ?

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

Advertising Board and Posters Dolls House :: Posted by: Hazel on August 13th, 2019

Mixed Media Original Miniature Art Furniture

My latest commissions have been in my mixed media style of art.

I have painted pictures with the addition of printed words in the posts but these two new projects were a little bit different.

The Brief #1

Design a advertising bill board to go out side a miniature haberdashery shop. The shop is a period style and the signs I designed and painted reflect the tone and theme of the clients miniature shop.

For this project I just had to make the advertising boards, the lady is going to make her own frame structure for them to go into.

These are the two options I made so the lady had a choice, she has chosen the ones on the right with the gold colour lettering. They are 3 inches by 2 approximately.

The Brief #2

I was commissioned to design and paint two posters for a performance of the Nutcracker in a miniature Dolls house 1:12th scale size theatre. These are very detailed and tiny.

This collector has several of my ballerina paintings in her miniature Ballet studio.

Mixed Media. Printed Wording and Encaustic Painting

1:12th scale advertising poster and bill board
I designed the layout on my computer and printed the wording then painting each individually. For the bill boards, the cotton reels, threads and needles and dresses are all painted in Encaustic Wax after the print had dried.

The posters are made in a similar way, a mixed media piece of art is in this way a unique piece dollhouse furniture.

The Gallery

I’ve been painting for my own miniature dollhouse size property too. This A board style piece is now on display in The Gallery.
The Gallery is my 1:12th Art Gallery.
A Victorian Double fronted Shop but inside is a contemporary art gallery. My husband built it for me including building a bespoke floor, piece by piece, added ceiling lights and built me easels a browser and some of the frames ……

Painting Sweet Peas Encaustic Art Video :: Posted by: Hazel on July 8th, 2019

Painting Miniature Art In Wax

Miniature Art

This week we have taken some video snippets of me painting in my studio, using both my heated stylus tools and mini hot plate and of course encaustic wax paint.

These tiny flower vases are very small …. as are the snippets of me painting, these are not demonstration videos just a bit of fun to show a little of what’s been going on this week. Plus to be honest we got the giggles …. and no the out takes have been deleted.

I do love painting flowers, and they are very popular with miniature dollhouse and miniature art collectors, as they suit many types of dolls house setting, from period to modern, from houses to shops and diorama.

Here you can see me painting some pretty bright flowers in hot wax using my mini hot plate as I add some background to the flowers I will paint later in the next video.

I do love painting flowers ….. flower vase part 1 As you may know I’m a encaustic artist painting in miniature for dollhouse and miniature art collectors. Here you can see me painting in hot wax using my mini hot plate as I add some background to the flowers I will paint later …. see the next video for that.
