Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Dolls House Furniture Art Painting :: Posted by: Hazel on October 22nd, 2018

New Dolls House Furniture

Last weekend I went to the Rayleigh Dolls House Fair, shopping not selling. I have had a stand at the Dolls House fairs at The Mill in Rayleigh in the past but I haven’t done fairs in 3 years now and sell my work online or by direct contact and commission only now a days.

Setting the Scene

I like to show my paintings in the best way possible when displaying them for sale online. I often take photographs in my own 1:12th Art Gallery or in my 1:24th scale set. And I thought it might be fun to make a room setting as a lounge to show how they might look displayed on the wall.

And this is what I came up with.

There were some wonderful stalls at the fairs and I managed to get these and a few other bits and pieces including some new frames too.

These three themed fairies I have just finished.

They were a commission a lady who has already bought miniature art from me showed her daughter one of my fairy art paintings and her daughter asked me to paint one for her, the mop and bucket was her idea and I know she has a new puppy so I thought I’d do these for her to choose from and she is having them all !!

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

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.

Strictly “Miniature” Come Dancing …………

New Ideas …… Ballroom Dancing

We have been having some extreme weather here the south of England this week last and its been very cold in my studio, so I haven’t been painting very much, however with a change to the weather I have now been back painting, I haven’t been idle while not in the studio and have been sketching and “doodling” as I call it, And the ideas for some new paintings have been awaiting me being able to get my time back with the encaustic wax flowing ……

New subject are always Fun

These Dolls house miniature paintings are shown here on display in my 1:12 Art Gallery. If you read my blog you will know I have my own miniature Property that houses my own collection of miniature Art In Wax and where I display my new paintings for photographing.

These three new pieces each feature some dancers, maybe in a dancing competition like we used to see on the TV in “Come Dancing” (I’m showing my age now ) or “Strictly Come Dancing”, or at a Ball or dance in a period setting, these dolls house pieces have lots of opportunity for display.
