Inside The Gallery this morning….
A new art exhibition…… “Mannequin” the video below shows what I’ve been painting recently.

The Gallery is my 1:12th scale Art gallery which today has on display my latest collection of dolls house paintings. These miniature paintings are based on the theme of mannequin dressed with Vintage style lingerie….. there is also a dress painting which ties to the theme as a Dressing Room perhaps a ladies maid getting the dresses ready or it could be a dress shop.

Encaustic Wax paintings in Miniature.

If you have read my blog before you will know I am an Encaustic artist with a passion for painting in hot wax paint….. especially in miniature

I paint using branded wax medium which I melt and paint with using a collection of heat tools. These range from specialist encaustic irons and stylus heat tools, with various nibs and tips some of which my husband has adapted the tips of so I can paint tiny. I also use a hot plate and craft heat gun, all of which go into the creating my paintings in varying ways.

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.

Commission A Piece Of Dolls House Art.

Commissioning a piece of my art is easy …. so why not Contact me and have a painting commissioned for your dolls house or miniature property.

New Horizons miniature dolls house art :: Posted by: Hazel on December 28th, 2018

New Horizons

Miniature Dolls House Art

I truly believe that art, as with beauty, is in the eye of the beholder and with this in mind my new miniature dollhouse paintings shown here say to me, that as we start a new year in 2019 I am looking at “New Horizons” and yet, I am also thinking about my roots and the ages that have gone before.

The strength of the old tree still standing strong, younger trees growing new branches and also to know the new life coming in the blooms of Spring leaves …..

What do you see ?

I am hoping these new pieces of my miniature art will mean and show different things to different people …… I know what I see …… But what do you see ?Original miniature art
