Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Dolls House Cupcake Art Sign Pictures :: Posted by: Hazel on October 26th, 2018

New !! Miniature Dolls House Art

This is what I have been on working on today.

Collectible art for dollhouse cupcakes
A new miniature collection of dollhouse paintings.

These new paintings have a style that could be called a sign or plaque, this type of retro styling is very popular and the twist here is they are each a unique one of a kind piece of art. They are mixed media with a sweet treat theme…… I like a cupcake myself !

Mixed Media Art In Wax

I have in the past dabbled in using my Encaustic paints with other media and these new miniature paintings are a combination of ink and encaustic Wax paint. I used my computer and printed the ink lettering into a semi sheen (and semi absorbent card) then wax painted over the printing, this seals the print into the painting and then I paint the picture, in this case a theme of cupcakes and desserts. These are each a unique original painting. Only the text is printed.

A Collection of Six New Miniature Themed Dollhouse Paintings

Shown here on display in my Osn miniature property The Gallery which is my 1:12th Art Gallery.

These miniature paintings are for sale ….. please contact me via my website or Facebook

Wildflowers- Original Dolls House Art

I thought it might be fun to take some photos as I painted this pretty wildflower LandscapeHow to paint a dolls house landscape

As you can see I paint, not using a brush but a stylus tool, it’s not unlike painting with a knife as people do when working with different medium. As you will know from reading my blog and website I’m an Encaustic artist. I paint in specialist Encaustic wax paints on for purpose card.

The wax paint had a great texture and sheen when finished.

This painting is 2 x 2 1/2 inches and is for sale along with other of my art on Etsy

1:24 dollhouse miniature furniture original art :: Posted by: Hazel on March 24th, 2018

1:24 Scale Dolls House Furniture

Painting Tiny Art

I was recently asked if I painted for 1:24 scale. Which I hadn’t before, but I took the commission as you may know from reading my blog I do love a challenge …… I painted a tiny cottage landscape just 1 inch by 1 1/4 inches, following showing this I have sold a couple more paintings for this scale dolls house and been asked to do more commissions.

I showed these tiny pieces on Facebook and have had a lot of comments, this has lead me to paint more pictures in the scale and this week I decided to try something different.

My 1:12 (the size I mostly paint for ) dolls house screens / room dividers have always been very popular. Each being an original painting as a unique piece of miniature furniture. So I decided to try some at this smaller scale.

Quote about dolls house scales

“The most common standard for
adult collectors is 1:12 scale, also called 1″ or one inch scale (where 1 foot is represented by 1 inch.) Among adult collectors there are also smaller scales which are much more common in the United States than in Britain. 1:24 or half inch scale (1 foot is 1/2″) was popular in Marx dollhouses in the 1950s but only became widely available in collectible houses after 2002, about the same time that even smaller scales became more popular, like 1:48 or quarter inch scale (1 foot is 1/4″) and 1:144 or “dollhouse for a dollhouse” scale.”

1:24 Dolls’ House Room Dividers
1:24 dollhouse art furniture

Painted in Encaustic Wax paints on specialist gloss card. I have backed the panels with card and the back has a coloured card backing to cover up the paper tape that creates the concertina effect.

Approximately 7.5 cm high with each panel 2 cm wide. They are delicate pieces of furniture.

It is great fun and very challenging painting this tiny.

Hope you like these new tiny pieces of art and furniture. My Husband Adrian made me this little set up help me get my eye in for this tiny scale. And it makes a lovely way to display the art and screens.

1:24 scale dollhouse art

I will be painting more in this scale, in fact I have four to paint as a commission for a collector in Scotland who has a country cottage style dolls house 1:24 scale. I will also be listing pieces in my Etsy show over the next few weeks too.
