New Dollhouse Miniature Paintings and Commissioned Art :: Posted by: Hazel on October 9th, 2019

New Dollhouse and Miniature Painting Commissioned Art

I have been very busy with new paintings and lots of exciting and challenging commissions.  I haven’t had as much time as usual to do many blog posts so I’m doing one today to catch up and to show just some of what’s been going on ……

 

Stag and Doe miniature paintings

Stag and Doe

There is a little story behind these two miniature paintings which I was commissioned to paint a few weeks ago.

These “Moonlight Landscapes” are dollhouse size, as you can see, on display above  in my 1 12th size Art Gallery, but they are not going into a dolls house, the owners don’t even have a miniature property!

Framed size 2 x 21/2 inches the tiny pieces of art are going to be displayed in a cabinet. There is more to this story which I will share next month, as I was also commissioned by this couple to paint for their wedding, in fact their wedding stationery is very unique….. and I will be blogging about that in future.

Varied and Electic

Last month saw an array of commission requested, all varied and fun challenges…..

Dollhouse paintings
The Donut Hole – The Brief

“Hi Hazel. Could you please paint me a sign for my bakery? It will need to hang on the wall. I would like it to read “The Donut Hole” Maybe paint a couple donuts on it?”

I painted two mixed media pieces so Darlene had a choice and she had the both. The text is printed on using my own design on the computer and the I painted around with my encaustic wax paint.


Amberly Willow is a bjd (Ball Jointed Doll) doll who’s owner asked me to design and paint an A Board sign for her miniature dolls shop, in the style of a specific type of dolls, doll, yes there are beautiful dolls for your doll.  The miniature doll paintings has also gone to this collector in Maryland USA.


The Parisian Boutique street scene, with hat and dress shops in the foreground and the Eiffel  Tower  in the distance was a commission that is now in America and is going to be in a “ Paris Hat and Clothing Store” the dollhouse owner is creating. This piece is framed in a handmade wooden frame made especially for me by a UK craftsman.


The Gentleman Department. These are the latest paintings for a collector of my work, Tricia is building a haberdashery store with both ladies and gentlemen departments, these are the latest additions, Men’s accessories and ties and hanker chiefs.  Tricia properties have featured in my blog before and the haberdashery store will be, in the future. I’m loving the challenges I’m set by Tricia.


Maybe would you like to commission a miniature painting ?

Please  contact me to discuss your request

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 Art In Wax

It’s been a busy time in the Art In Wax studio, with lots of new miniature paintings, painted and now online in my Etsy store.

I’ve also had my techie hat on, and have now added a page to this, my website blog that connects to Etsy and my miniature art store. Please take a look …….
www.artinwax.co.uk/blog/miniature-dollhouse-art-shop/ and see all my latest listings.

So what have I been painting…..

Well what haven’t I been painting!!

if you read my blog or look at my Facebook page you will know I am an eclectic artist, I love to try new things and this is reflected in my art miniatures.

Dressing Rooms

My “dressing room “ paintings have been very popular and they are such fun to paint I couldn’t resist painting more.

As you can see pictured below there are some new pieces in this style, the two period style gowns in the ladies dressing room and the larger piece 3.5 x 2.5 inches has a beautiful blue cocktail dress in a lady’s boudoir , a very tiny 1:24th scale framed (1 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches) has beautiful lilac and silver ball gown on a mannequin in a dressing room with a cabinet with a flower vase and a mirror on the wall.

Plus new today brides dressing room  with her gown on the mannequin.

Fairy Art and All sorts of other subjects

Steampunk fairies these are about  2 1/2 x 1 1/4 sizes one is slightly shorter than the other. And are media pieces. The cogs in the background I draw digitally then printed and waxed over before painting these gothic / steam punk fairy pieces. Both are holding a walking stick that’s really a wand 😉

……then we have a woodland fairy painting and a fairy godmother, not to mention a ballerina some very pretty flowers, landscapes, and cottage …..

The photos below are how the front page my shop looks today, why not check it out and see all the other dolls house, ACEO and other miniature art available to buy direct from me the artist.
