Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Dolls House Haberdashery Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on February 5th, 2019

Haberdashery In Miniature

Haberdashery sewing machine art
A collector of my miniature art, who is a dolls house collector and miniaturist contacted me a short while ago as she was starting her latest project, a miniature 1:12th scale haberdashery, come dress shop, come Ladies boutique, in a vintage period style, and she asked me to paint some specific pieces of miniature art for her new project.

Commissioned to paint for a themed property

So I have been commissioned to paint for this interesting project and I’m having a lot of fun painting in the theme, with an open brief my imagination and Wax has been flowing.

I have worked with Tricia before on her Dance Studio and she has quite a collection of my miniature Art In Wax. These are some of the paintings for her haberdashery store, which is now underway, the building shell of the shop can be seen in the picture above, once the property is complete I am hoping Tricia will let us see the finished shop, with all it’s Art In Wax on display.

Haberdashery paintings

The mannequin dress painted panels are 13 cm high and will be mounted in the wall. The panels tie in with the set of four miniature pieces each with the project theme, period style dresses, sewing, threads, wool and yarn. All these pieces are painted in Encaustic paint on specialist gloss card which is cream in colour. The most recent piece, finished this week is the antique style sewing machine and and basket of fabric painting.

The two mixed media advertising style plaques, are unusual and a unique challenge of their own.

Mixed Media Miniature Art In Wax

This painting style like a sign, plaque or advertisement works great as a miniature for a dollhouse size shop. Giving a very unique and personal feel to the art. I have in the past painted in this style for property signs and personalised art.
The paintings are a combination of ink and encaustic Wax paint. I used my computer and printed the ink lettering into a semi sheen (and semi absorbent) card support then wax painted over the printing, this seals the print into the painting and then I paint the picture. Only the text is printed.

The website is designed as a place for me to show and display my artwork in an online gallery, to find out more about me please visit the about Hazel page.

The art gallery shop has an array of new paintings, photographed by Adrian and now online. I have added a page about encaustic art, which I will expand on over time, there are also some useful links in the page including one to where I get most of my supplies from and a website with lots of information on painting with encaustic wax.

The encaustic art gallery will expand as I create more paintings, I am working on some larger A3 pictures, one of which was finished this morning and is ready to be mounted. I also intend to add an exhibitions page soon, this will be a place that will change periodically and where I will feature paintings on a theme.

So this may be the launch of the website but it is by far not the finish!
