I’ve received many e-mails and photos from students who have succeeded in carving their first watermelon rose. I thought you might like to see them. Earlier on my blog, I showed pictures of beautiful beet rose carvings by beginner students. Now, you can see the first melon rose carvings, too.

You may have seen different watermelon rose carvings while on vacation at a resort or in pictures and thought, “Oh, that’s too hard” or “The carver must have had years of experience”.

Well, read on to see what these students were able to achieve with their very first watermelon rose carving, through my video instructions alone!

Beginner Watermelon Rose Carvings

One of my readers, Tahir Ali Butt, has really impressed me with his watermelon carvings. Look at this lovely watermelon rose that he made and decorated:

Much of my carving training has been in the Thai fruit carving style. Thai fruit carving often includes lots of detailed and intricate melon carving. The results are colorful and enchanting to the eyes. 

A couple of weeks ago our group brought carvings to celebrate what we have learned. I thought that you might enjoy seeing these photos. They may provide inspiration for you to learn fruit carving. If you are already an experienced carver, maybe you will get some new ideas for patterns to carve.

Take a look at these lovely Thai fruit carvings.

Rather than try to view these with the Pic Lens or Slide show links, it will most likely work best if you click the photo that you want to see. Then you can click the ‘Next’ and ‘Back’ links to view photos before it and after it. Enjoy!
