Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Painting Sweet Peas Encaustic Art Video :: Posted by: Hazel on July 8th, 2019

Painting Miniature Art In Wax

Miniature Art

This week we have taken some video snippets of me painting in my studio, using both my heated stylus tools and mini hot plate and of course encaustic wax paint.

These tiny flower vases are very small …. as are the snippets of me painting, these are not demonstration videos just a bit of fun to show a little of what’s been going on this week. Plus to be honest we got the giggles …. and no the out takes have been deleted.

I do love painting flowers, and they are very popular with miniature dollhouse and miniature art collectors, as they suit many types of dolls house setting, from period to modern, from houses to shops and diorama.

Here you can see me painting some pretty bright flowers in hot wax using my mini hot plate as I add some background to the flowers I will paint later in the next video.

The Gallery 1:12 Scale Miniature Scene Art Gallery :: Posted by: Hazel on January 21st, 2015

The Gallery 1:12 Scale Art Gallery

Painting Art In Wax In Miniature

As many of you who read my blog know I have a passion for painting in hot wax – using many techniques, different wax formula and on various supports.

I also paint in many styles and sizes, including miniature.

I really enjoy the challenge and the results when painting encaustic in miniature.

Again if you have read my blog in the past you will know that I also own a miniature property a 1:12 scale Art Gallery which my very clever and patient husband Adrian built for me.

The Gallery as it is called resides in our home and houses a collection of my tiny Art, it is a fun addition to our home.

The Gallery had its grand opening in 2013 and since then Adrian has also built some easels and an Art Browser for display and the paintings change from time to time too.

The Gallery : The Back Story

When we were planning and building The Gallery we chatted and a “back story” developed over time so just for fun I thought I might share our (frictional) story …….

The property at 27 Coast Road is a Victorian double fronted shop property which started life as a bakery called The Granary.

It has seen many changes over the years, starting as a bakery where the bakers worked long hours and mostly baked bread that they delivered, sold at market or was collected from the shop. Then moving into an era where cakes and sweet treats became popular and Ladies would browse and shop for delicious sweets and later having part of the shop became a small tea room, where tea in China cups graced the tables and cakes and pastries were enjoyed.

But in time with post war rationing and the rise of convenience foods and supermarkets the family business closed and the shop stood empty for some years, still owned by the family but no longer a going concern.

In the 1990’s a Mr Rayfield moved to this part of town, he was a builder by trade and as he past the shop in disrepair, each day on his way to work and thought what a shame it was that should a wonderful building was no longer being used.

Some years later, Mr R married and settled down, his wife was a very keen artist and with his encouragement starting showing her art in exhibitions and selling her paintings on the Internet.

So when an opportunity came to buy the Old Granary from a distance relative of the original baker the couple bought the property and set about restoring the building, keeping the exterior as it was with its Victorian panel features but inside it became a modern contemporary Art Gallery with a high gloss floor and spot lighting just right for displaying lots of Art ………

All in miniature of course 😉 wink !!!!!

And just for fun I have made a graphic interpretation of The Granary …… along side some pictures of The Gallery
