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.

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

This is one of my new paintings, it is a 20 x 10 inch wildflower flower painting on a birch wood panel, the panel was primed in encaustic gesso before painting.

This painting is painted in Arts Encaustic brand of wax, the soft layers of wax in the background give a misty feel and a great backdrop to the dramatic colour of the flowers.

Art In Wax on Ampersand Art Supplies Encausticbord Video Demonstrations :: Posted by: Hazel on June 25th, 2014

Working with Ampersand Art Supply Encausticbord

Hazel Rayfield Artist

Video demonstrations Encausticbord

When I was approached by Karyn at Ampersand Art Supply earlier this year to create some demonstrations of me working with their wonderful products for their YouTube channel, I was really excited.

I love to paint in hot wax and have used the Encausticbord panels and cradle in the past when I reviewed the R&F Handmade Paints Starter kit on this blog last year and the kit included some of the panels and a cradle.

The Encausticbord has not been readily available in the UK other than in the kits as far as I am aware, but I am informed that Ampersand Art Supply who are based in Buda Texas, are looking to have UK supplier later this year.

Always up for a challenge

If you have read my blog before you know that I love to see what can be done in hot wax and I love to challenge myself and try new things, so when this opportunity came I was very excited to be working with Ampersand and with these wonderful encaustic supports.

Working with Ampersand Encausticbord

This is what Ampersand Arts Supply say about Encausticbord …….

A Creative Collaboration between Ampersand™ and R&F Handmade Paints
This creative collaboration began in 2008 when the two manufacturers, authorities in their respective fields of wood painting panels and encaustic paint colors, started working together to dream up the perfect surface for encaustic paints. This combination of Ampersand’s archival panel coating technology and R&F’s expertise in encaustics led to Encausticbord™, a unique wood panel that has the tooth to hold encaustic and mixed media unlike any other surface.

Quote taken June 2014 courtsey of www.ampersandart.com/encausticbord.html

Making the videos

My husband Adrian, a great amateur photographer in his own right, filmed as I painted. We are not professional film makers, we got the giggles a few times and had a few out-takes too …… but I have a passion for painting Art In Wax and I hope this comes over in the videos.

The two videos created especially for Ampersand Art Supply are now live and can be seen online on the Ampersand Art Supply YouTube Channel. I have posted the direct links to my demonstrations below :

I am using the wonderful and amazing colour wax paints by R & F Paints in these films.

Two video demonstrations

Cradled Encausticbord :
This film shows me working on an Encausticbord cradle which is 6 x 6 inches and a prefect size for this subject, in this film I demonstrate the stages of how I painted a Sunflower head.

The video can be watched here : Ampersand Art Supply : Hazel Rayfield Cradled Encausticbord.

Artist Trading Cards in Encaustic :
In this film I demonstrate the techniques working in miniature, onto Encaustic ACEO / ATC 2.5 x 3.5 inch size Encausticbord panels which are great fun to work with. Here I create three pieces using different styles and technique, from painting directly onto the surface, to a mixed media piece and a colorful abstract.

The video can be watched here : Ampersand Art Supply : Hazel Rayfield Artist Trading Cards in Encaustic.

The finished pieces

These are the finished pictures, this is been a great challenge / project. Ampersand Art Supply and their products have made painting my Art In Wax a pleasure.

The Lavender is on a 4 x 4 panel and the boat is 8 x 8 I sourced these panels at Jacksons art, they are plain wood, sanded plywood, with a 20mm depth, with reinforced bracing on the back. I applied a couple of coats of gesso (Encaustic Gesso) before painting onto them with the wax paints.
