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.

Art In Wax by Southend based artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on July 21st, 2016

Painting onto a different type of Card

Recently I have been working painting with my encaustic wax on some patterned papers I bought from a local craft shop and they have a very different effect so I thought I would show some here today.

These design papers have an abstract print in what, I feel are rustic / distressed / shabby paper chic style. They are a 200gsm Matt paper support, unlike the encaustic card I mostly paint on which is a gloss. The gloss card allows the wax to move and flow, it allows for blending on the support. The Matt surface is porous so when the wax is on its on !! I blend colours before applying more and a little by reheating the wax once in place. It gives an interesting effect and the wax has a great contrast in texture to the paper background.

I have painted these three pictures : Red Poppies : Purple and red poppies : Flower pot in this style recently and as you can see the results are modern style pieces of wall art. Each of these paintings are 6 inches wide, and different heights I have cropped the photos for this blog post but they are for sale and I can send more information on sizes and if you would like them mounted or not. Please contact me for more details on how to buy Art in Wax.

I have also painted some miniatures in this way using tiny pieces of these patterned paper. And in the next blog post I will show photos of me painting in miniature in this way.

Encaustic Art Bold and Beautiful :: Posted by: Hazel on March 19th, 2016

New Encaustic Art – Hot Wax Painting

This is my latest encaustic wax painting.

Bold and Beautiful

Painting in encaustic wax is great fun and a very versatile medium to work with. The medium lends itself to both the subtle tones and in this garden flower painting to the colourful and bold.

This painting is painted in “Arts Encaustic” brand of hot wax paints on specialist card and shown here mounted in a double mount 10 x 8 inches. I have used both my iron and stylus tools to paint this picture which has an array of bright flowers and a pretty blue and silver butterfly.

edit : NOW SOLD This painting is currently for sale £25 plus postage. Please contact me to buy direct from me the artist 🙂

Zentangle ink drawings for sale :: Posted by: Hazel on March 19th, 2016

Ink drawings – Zentangle Style

I have decided that I will offer some of my Zentangle inspired fantasy flowers for sale.

If you are interested contact me direct please via my website.

These four are each A4 in size and have been drawn using archival ink on white card stock.

I have taken a couple of pictures of them in mounts to try out how they might look, these mounts are 10 x 12 inches so if mounting I would need to trim the picture to fit them.

For just the drawing as is …. signed on the back and initialed on the front they will be £10 each plus postage.

If you would like it with the mount as shown here (I only have one of these mounts at the moment – I have other styles too) let me know and I can quote you a price.

Payment is via PayPal and we can arrange this when you contact me.
