Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

2020 Miniature Artist Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on January 14th, 2020

Just a few photos of the year …….

Dresses and Dressing Room Painting

The dresses and dressing room paintings are proving very popular and are such fun to paint .

I’ve painted many this year as well as Ladies, like these three chatting at the Ball. Others, the gentlemen suit piece was one of a collection now in a miniature property that is a shop with a men’s department. A dressing room for all occasions…..

Flowers

Flowers and plants are still one of my favourite subjects to paint . The pink peonies and purple flowers was one of my first pieces of 2020

Something different and Quirky

I love painting different styles and topics …… sometimes an idea just comes and I am often challenged by commissions  which can lead to new ideas . Painting for miniature and dollhouse properties is so varied and great fun.

This vintage sewing machine picture is off  to Canada today to hang in a dollhouse sewing room in a period dolls house.

I have painted many ice creams and ice cream billboards recently, they have always been well received and this year more so, many of which are in America now, with more than one in a 1:12th scale ice cream parlour so I’m told.

Likewise the chocolates, were a fun challenge and several are in a miniature chocolate shop here the in the U.K.

And then there is everything else …..

I have sold over 200 paintings in 2019 so these are just a taster of some of them, some are sold others currently in my Etsy shop. Ballerina paintings, landscape pieces, winter and Spring, by the river, with the Eiffel Tower, fairies of course, a cup of coffee and cake …….

Plus not shown here but featured on my blog in other posts ….. an Art Deco Collection, Billboards, window displays  and much much more

Video Demonstration Painting Encaustic Art Dollhouse Flower Basket :: Posted by: Hazel on August 9th, 2019

Painting in Encaustic Wax in Miniature

Flower basket dollhouse painting
This what I’ve been getting up to today …..

Finishing my latest painting, a floral basket arrangement. This painting would be great in a period dollhouse or as a retro or vintage painting in a more modern miniature property

Video of me Painting

While I painted the final part of this miniature painting my husband Adrian filmed me, as it’s always fun to see how people create their work isn’t it

You can see in the film, I’m using encaustic wax paint and specialist encaustic tools to paint with. These tools have been adapted for me so I can paint tiny. The way I paint Is similar to painting with a knife at times but the wax is solid until I heat it. I use the ArtsEncaustic brand.

The painting is 2 x 2 1/2 inches in size and is now listed for sale in my Etsy store.

The snippets of me painting may jump about a bit ….. we had several goes as the noise in the background meant we had to stop a few times.

This what I’ve been getting up to today …..Finishing my latest painting a floral basket arrangement. This painting…

New Miniature and Dollhouse Art Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on May 5th, 2019

New Miniature Painting

I have been very busy painting and realised that I haven’t blogged in a while so this post is a little catch and viewing of some of my recent pieces of miniature art.

I’ve been having fun experimenting with my Dolls House paintings and Collectible miniature art, my mannequin style pieces, some of which are referred to as my “Dressing Room” Collection  have been especially well received and have been very popular in both 1:12th scale and ACEO size, these shown below are the ones currently available in my Etsy store, the pastel dresses in the dressing room, the bridal gown boudoir are  toy dolls house size and “Starlet” is 3.5 x 2.5 inches so Art Card .

The most recent of the paintings shown below, finished today are the two Street Scene pictures, the Café scene is in a black frame 3×4 inches, some of my paintings this size appear in dolls houses as a statement piece but equally they are popular as a way to own a piece of miniature art. The other street Scene is a smaller piece just 2 x 1 3/4 inches which has a florist and dress shop in a courtyard.

I hope you like these new pieces and please remember if you would like to see more of my latest miniature paintings why not check out my Facebook page …….

Miniature dollhouse miniature painting by Hazel Rayfield
This month I have been painting fairies. They are great fun to paint, great to let my imagination just flow with the Wax!

Below are some of my new fairy pieces. And you can also see how I put the finishing touches to this pretty “Flower Bouquet Fairy” which is just 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size.

This week Adrian filmed me painting the finishing touches This fairy painting that is now for sale in my Etsy store.

I have also shownthis film direct to my Art In Wax Facebook page and it has had lots of comments and views, I love to see how people create their miniatures so I thought it would be fun to show this little insight into how I paint. It’s been a while since we did any videos for the blog etc. But this year I hope to do more.

I hope you enjoy watching, if you would like to leave me a comment that would be great …..
