Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

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.

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.

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.

Watch me paint in miniature !!

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 …..

Commission a piece of miniature dollhouse art from a miniaturist artist :: Posted by: Hazel on January 8th, 2018

Commission a Piece of Original Miniature Art

Following on from my previous post, 2018 sees some changes to the Art In Wax focus, bringing my miniaturist work to the fore. Nearly all my work is paintings miniature now, with last year seeing them go to more countries than ever before. At the last count my Art is in 17 countries on 4 continents. I have to pinch myself when I think about it. Who knew !! when I started painting Encaustic how my journey would be. It has been and continues to be my passion to paint miniature art in Encaustic hot Wax paints.

Commission Page Update

I’ve been updating my website this weekend revamping the miniature art commissions page and as a result looking back at some of my sold paintings…… which reminds me …..

Maybe I should paint another a hot air balloon landscape, and perhaps a different style vintage caravan, I still love painting poppies, to think of something new for the seahorses, my “under the sea, dolphins and mermaids were popular a couple of years ago, but I haven’t painted any in a while…… I don’t know how I forgot them !

Good to look back

It seems at this time of year, the start of a new year with all the possibilities this will hold, that looking back is a fond occupation. I have enjoyed looking at the commissions I have done in the past, not all these paintings shown in this graphic were commissions but they are all sold, and with that in mind. If you see a piece of my art that is sold but would like one similar, it won’t be the same as each piece is unique and original, then why not get in touch and see if I can paint a piece of miniature original art …. just for you.

It is not as expensive as you may think……

Commissions can be a single piece or a set of two or more paintings, the cost is dependant on your requirements and will be quoted together with my payment terms before the commission is started. They don’t cost much more than the paintings I have already online.

I look forward to painting lots of commissions in 2018 ….. maybe one will be for you ?
