Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

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.

Norfolk Broads Paintings Father and Daughter :: Posted by: Hazel on June 23rd, 2019

Father and Daughter Artists.

Miniature and full size Norfolk Broads cottage
Norfolk Broads 1958

My dad has been painting, as a hobby for many many years, he painted this cottage landscape  in 2003 from a photographic slide he took when he was on a boating holiday on the Norfolk Broads in 1958.

I took the photograph of the painting on the fence in his garden a couple of weeks ago
The painting which we call “Dads Place” is approximately 32 x 24 inches and is actually one of his smaller pieces, Dad paints on hardboard in Acrylic and then seals with varnish so they can stay outside. Some come in for the winter. We jokingly call this his “hardboard art”

My Miniature Interpretation

So this week I have painted this cottage landscape picture, well my interpretation of it, in my style using my Encaustic paint and in miniature of course. My piece is 2 3\4 inches by 1 3/4 inches approximately.

If you have read my blog or Facebook feed, you will know I don’t paint copies of paintings, all my work is original, I’m inspired by what I see and what I have in my imagination…. I do work from photographs occasionally and my own doodles. But this was one of my most challenging paintings to date, I hope I do justice to Dad’s work.


My Dad is in his 80’s now and we thought it would be fun to show some of his work here today. So together with this picture in question these are a couple of Dads other hardboard art pieces. The pink windmill is called “Horning Mill” my husband and I actually stumbled upon it ourselves a few years ago when visiting Norfolk, great to see it in person after seeing the painting all these years.

Impressionist dolls house paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on December 23rd, 2018

New Miniature Paintings

I finished these two new miniature pieces of my original encaustic art this week.

A new subject for me, and definitely a little more impressionistic……

Street café dollhouse painting

I’m calling them “Spring Café” which is 45 x 60 mm and the framed one is 4×3 inches is “Meeting up at the café.

Spring Café has ladies outside a café on a tree lined avenue, featuring building and shops with flowers and flower boxes on the walls.

As I say, I’ve gone a little more impressionist with my paintings for these pictures. The street scene, Meeting up at the café is a fun piece with people gathering for coffee at a street café. Their is lots of details to keep the interest and this was a fun challenge to paint.

You can own these paintings

These two miniature paintings are currently listed in my Etsy store for sale : https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ArtInWax
