Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Dollhouse Artist New Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on June 17th, 2020

New miniature dollhouse paintings

An Eclectic Artist

I have been painting lots of new subjects these past few weeks and I thought maybe a post to show the diverse Themes I have working on and I fully admit I am a very eclectic Artist.

Today I painted the Strawberry cottage, which is shown here in a gold effect frame, size 2 x 2 1/2 inches. The Peacock in full feather was a challenge and is a very pretty piece in a frame 3 x 4 inches, one of my larger miniature paintings and works as a statement piece in a miniature dollhouse or as a piece of miniature art in a life size home

Lots of new paintings listed and many now on their way to new homes …..

Some of these are sold now but if you see a subject you would like please get in touch and I maybe able to paint a commission in a similar style for you  no two of my paintings are the same, as each is original and unique.

Five Miniature Stag Paintings

The Blue Stag which is framed in a Black wooden handmade frame and the silver Stag on a a dark green painted background in a White frame, wooden handmade as the other one are tiny at 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 inches. These are front loaded frames so the paintings will be stuck in.

The stag on the easel to the right is silver encaustic paint on a specialist black gloss card. And is the same size as the middle Stag which is very striking on a bronze card with a mix of black and silver wax paint making  this a very abstract style. They are approximately 1 3/4 by 1 3/8 inches each

And finally the front on stag, which is on white card and is 2 by 1 1/2 inches in size.

Halloween  is always popular and the Glamorous Witch above is a new piece painted for the occasion.

Christmas

Christmas is my favourite….. I get to paint sparkles and Christmas trees, what’s not to love.
This year I also did some new Christmas themes such as my ballerina pieces and the fireplace and window paintings, plus one of my shop A Boards, which you can see more of in my blog post from last month. Miniature Dollhouse Billboard Signs

Christmas paintings for your dollhouse

Miniatures as gifts

Miniature Art also makes a lovely gift too, for both dollhouse and miniature collectors and as a very unique present of an original painting for someone who likes special one of a kind ornament or objet da.

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
https://www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/dolls-house-original-art/

As a miniaturist I needed a miniature property of my own of course !! And September 23rd 2013 I posted about Adrian finishing building The Gallery …… my 1:12th Art Gallery https://www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/grand-opening-the-gallery/

My art and my miniature Art Gallery have featured in magazines and blogs and even appeared on TV once …..

On the October 5th 2014 I blogged about my First Dolls House Fair

I did a year of fairs and exhibitions which was great fun, but as I sell my art worldwide, and the changes to the way we all Shop means I now only sell online, in my Etsy store and via my website and Facebook page.
