Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

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.

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

Dolls House Art

This month has seen Art In Wax celebrate 5 years of me painting in Encaustic wax.

You can read my story and how I got started painting in hot wax on my website profile page. To celebrate I have been have an Art In Wax promotion on my Etsy store and have had an amazing response with this month seeing more sales of miniature Dolls House Art in a short space of time than ever before.

So as some of these have been sold via Etsy as well as my website store here and via direct sales on Facebook I thought it might be fun to show “some” of the paintings in miniature and screens that have been sold this month (so far) …… these are a few of my favorites 🙂

These miniature paintings have gone all over the world, to the USA, Canada and Australia plus many staying here in Europe too …..

The Framed Red Poppies and the Art Deco Screen are now in a miniature house in Massachusetts, with the pretty sunflowers in Hawaii and the retro caravan landscape and the framed cottage picture now in new homes in Texas. The beach screen and the seahorse are in a beach themed property and the dresses in a Ladies shop in miniature, with the tiny sunset with palm tree now in a mini artist studio and the blue night screen in a dollhouse in the north of England ….. so I’m told …..
