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 ?

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.

Dolls House Feature Miniature Art :: Posted by: Hazel on July 24th, 2019

Miniature Property with my Dollhouse Art on display

Firstly I would like to thank Danielle in Ohio who have very kindly sent me photos of her wonderful dollhouse miniature property with my Art In Wax paintings on display.

I’m always thrilled to see and hear about where my art is on display.Dollhouse featuring my miniature paintings

I love seeing where my art now resides so I’m very proud to show today, pieces of my art in this amazing dolls house, which is itself a work of art, with such care attention to detail this house created and decorated over the past seven years, and I’m told “I’m is still adding and taking away from it today” ….. we all know that feeling.

Paintings On Display

Currently four of my paintings are in this dollhouse, two hats mixed media pieces and a period style dressed mannequin are in the Haberdashery Room and the framed vase of Hydrangea flowers in a bedroom.

Look closely and you will see, her dresser with the yarns, ribbons and the sewing machine which are just so adorable.

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.
