10 years of Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on July 25th, 2021

Celebrating 10 Years of Art In Wax

This year, 2021 see lots of mile stones as I celebrate my 10th anniversary of painting in encaustics, hot wax painting .

August was when I sold my first ever painting and when I opened my Etsy shop.

Celebrating

To celebrate, I am created a limited edition series of my paintings.
There will be two styles with just 10 pieces in each, they will be numbered #1 to #10

Limited Edition Art In Wax

So far I have painted four  of the “celebrating” style and three of the “anniversary” style, which you can see below. Some of these are for sale, please contact me or take a look in my Etsy shop.

How it all began

In early 2011 I created my first hot wax Encaustic painting, Having painted in oils, acrylic and watercolours, just as a past time for many years, But when I discovered Encaustics I knew I had found something special.

My passion is for painting in hot wax, it is a fabulous medium to work in, What started as a hobby evolved and I sold my first encaustic painting in August 2011 and this year marks the 10th anniversary of my Art In Wax.

In 2013 I was asked if I could paint some original paintings for a Georgian Dolls House, I took the commission without a second thought! And as they say the rest is history……

As far as I know there are pieces of my Art In Wax in 23 countries on 4 continents……. who knew !!!!

And yes I have to pinch myself.

I am very honoured and every painting that goes to a new home is exciting, the feeling when someone buys one of my paintings never gets old or taken for granted.

Miniature Art Commission Canada Rocky Mountains :: Posted by: Hazel on July 15th, 2020

Commissioning Miniature ArtFour paintings of Canadian winter scenes

New Commission Canadian Landscape Paintings

Today I airmailed four miniature paintings to Ottawa.

Last week I was contacted by lady in Canada who has a growing “little collection” of my miniature paintings, and whom I painted a special commission in a January.

This time she sent me photographs she had taken in Canada spanning the last 10 years, the brief being could I paint her a set of miniature paintings in the style of these landscape scenes……

As you will be aware if you have read my blog before, I’m an original artist, so when, like in this case, working from photos, the paintings still have a style of my own work and therefore I like to think of it as giving an impression of the scene not a direct copy, thus making it an original piece of my “Art In Wax”.

This commission was a challenge I must admit, when I first saw the photos I thought “this is going to be a fun project” which it was, I love to paint sunsets and winter landscapes, however it was the sunset that was the most challenging of these and took as many hours as the others paintings all put together….. it’s funny how that happens sometimes, but I’m happy with the results and so is the buyers I’m really happy to say.

To quote her …. “Wow – I love them all – Thank you so much”

4 paintings with the photos taken from

A few facts …..

The mountain landscape I’m told the photograph was taken in Jasper BC is the largest of the paintings and 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. The lady asked me to frame this one so framed the overall size is 4 x 3 inches

Snow river, as I’m calling it was the smallest and is 2 x 1 5/8th inches

Sunset lake, a real challenge ! Is 2 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches

Autumn Lane, the path leading off into the distance is 2 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches.

Commissioning Hazel Rayfield

If you would like a miniature painting for your dollhouse or just a a piece of miniature art, why not get in touch and see if I can paint one especially for you.

Original Miniature Art Wedding Stationery :: Posted by: Hazel on November 10th, 2019

How Miniature Art In Wax became part of a very special day.

Earlier this year a friend asked me to help her create the place cards for her wedding.

She and her husband to be, love country style and with a special infinity for all things “Stag and Doe”. She showed me the cake topper she had bought for the cake and with this in mind I painted the little miniature painting of the kissing Stag and Doe heads. The cake was a silver birch style which you can see in the photographs below.

Miniature Art

Painted in my Encaustic wax paints onto gloss card, the miniature painting is just 2 x 1 1/2 inches and is shown below in a tiny wooden frame painted black 2 x 2 1/2 inches. My husband took a photograph of the painting which after cropping became part of the wedding place card design.

Now the wedding has taken place I can show these …..

Wedding Stationery

As the idea evolved my friend and I designed her wedding invitations to match, and the wedding stationery theme was created.

Using my miniature painting, (a rarity ! I don’t often allow prints of my artwork) we created the wedding stationery design, which was then printed and the bride made her invitations and place cards, layering the printed card on gold and green card stock.

Unique Table Settings

The card holders were individually made by the grooms son, beautiful walnut wood craved and with a tree of life medallion set in. A very talented craftsman, he also made a wonderful Oak centre piece and Pine cake stand for the occasion. The wood was also local and sourced In the Southend and Wakering area by the family as they are arborists for their business.

Original art at your wedding

I’m very proud to have my painting part of this wonderful occasion, we have had a fabulous week being part of the wedding with our great friends.
