Video demonstration : painting flowers in hot wax :: Posted by: Hazel on May 17th, 2013

Painting flowers in hot wax

Video Demonstration : Encaustic Art

This latest video from Art In Wax show me painting in hot wax some summer flowers.
The flowers are based on a clematis style flower, we have many clematis coming into flower in our garden at the moment. Clematis come in many shapes and sizes and wonderful colours, we have three varieties ourselves with the small compact pink blooms coming early in May to larger white and a purple variety blooming as the summer progresses.

The flowers I have painted here are “in the style of” a clematis, with so many types to choose from this is my own interpretation, as with many of my paintings I consider the subject to be an impression of.


The film shows how the flower is painting in hot wax, and gives reference to the watercolour I painted a few days ago. I have recently rekindled my fondness for watercolors and using them in parallel with the wax is great fun.

See for yourself

The pictures below show what I’ve been working on in this subject. The watercolour I used as a reference in the video below is the pink one on the right and the center picture is done using watercolour pencils, which I find great to sketch with, the framed paintings are both Encaustic paintings and approximatley A5 in size and are for sale, contact me for details and availability.

Painting a candle in hot wax :: Posted by: Hazel on October 9th, 2012

New Video Demonstration : Painting a candle in hot wax

We have just uploaded a new demonstration video to the Art In Wax You Tube Channel. The channel has been open since January this year when Adrian and I produced our first short film of me painting a Rose in hot wax and has had lots of views and interest. The channel now has five films of me painting in Encaustic wax.

Latest Encaustic Art Video

The latest film demonstration is a candle painting. With the festive season approaching I thought it would be fun to create a short film of this subject as it would make a fun little Christmas card.

The painting is an A6 size, on gloss card using red and gold wax to create the candle giving it a shine, then purple and yellow wax for the base and the candle wick and flame, together with some gold wax for highlight on the dripping wax that runs down the candle giving it a realistic look of flowing wax.

Expanding The Channel

We have great fun creating these short movies, the outtakes (now in the recycle bin!) while making this one in particular film were very funny as once I got the giggles it was hard to concentrate on the wax ….. so we had to have a few takes with this one!
Encaustic Candle
More You Tube demonstrations are planned soon, showing some more techniques and how I like to paint in Encaustic.

More hot wax candles!

The painting shown here with the pine cones is another picture created while filming, this was one from the outtakes ……..

Christmas Card – last year we used one of my artworks to create our Christmas card, view that picture on the Christmas Candle blog post from last year.

Pink Roses : Valentines Day Flowers :: Posted by: Hazel on January 20th, 2012

Pink Roses

New Paintings in Encaustic Wax

I have been painting a lot of Roses lately, we have recently created two video films of me painting pink roses in encaustic wax they are currently online at youtube which can be view via the Art In Wax You Tube Channel.

Video One : Painting a single stem pink rose, including demonstrating how I create a light coloured background then paint a single stem rose using the encaustic iron.

Video Two : This video demonstration takes a look in more detail, giving a closer view of me painting a rose with rose buds and a leafy stem, it also show more detailing using the encaustic stylus.

Valentines : Say it with flowers

Flowers are a wonderful way to celebrate Valentines Day and giving a gift of flowers in Art gives pleasure that lasts.

Encaustic Paintings, my artwork is created using encaustic wax, the finished paintings have a texture and wonderful sheen, they can be displayed framed or not (if they are to be framed they should be mounted so that the wax doesn’t touch the glass), I also like to display the smaller pieces on small display easels, I get many comments from people who once they see the paintings in real life say how the online pictures don’t capture the sense of sheen and texture as they really are.
