Although I have picked up some carving techniques by watching other carvers, these more recent carvings were done with the help of your videos…. I would not have been able to pick up these other techniques without the understanding of the basics which I learned from your videos….thank you Rose Flores
If you would like to learn a similar pattern, check out my Watermelon Carving Scroll Pattern lesson. The same carving techniques can be used for carving squashes. the carrots flowers were made with a carrot curler and the radishes are taught in the lessons, Amazing Carving with Jimmy Zhang, all of which you can get in our online shop.
