Take a look at the pretty Autumn fruit baskets that student / customer Mary Freeman created.
Here is what Mary had to say:
I carved my 1st ever basket weave for a special event last night & wanted to share some photos with you. They were a huge success & I received so many wonderful comments on them.
I made the leaves from finely sliced jicama & used food coloring to “paint” the leaves – this added to the whole fall presentation. The melons also have a hint of spray food coloring to enhance the over all appearance.
Thank you for such wonderful instructional videos!
Creating the Autumn colors
As you can see, Mary “painted” her leaves with fall colors using food coloring and added a bit of spray food coloring to the bowls themselves to get this pretty Autumn look.
