Patterns and Tools for making your Graduation Watermelon Carving

You can use any pattern you like for to carve a graduation watermelon carving fruit tray centerpiece. You can come up with your own patterns if you like. But we do have ready to carve patterns for Graduation as well as other special occasions and holidays. They are great for saving yourself some time. Just print and carve. The Graduation Pattern shown in this video is included in our set of patterns for various holidays and special occasions.

Here is the link to our Pattern Transfer Fabric. It’s the fastest easiest way to transfer patterns for carving on melons. Once you use it, you’ll never want to go back to old methods of transferring patterns.

Here is the link to our Thai Pro Knife with flexible blade. After trying lots and lots of different but similar looking knives, this one is my very favorite. The blade is the right combination of sharpness. thinness and flexibility. And the barrel handle allows you to maneuver the blade as easily as using a pen or pencil. The flexibility of the blade makes carving away the watermelon rind much smoother and easier than trying to use other types of paring knives.

Carving Letters and Words Video Lessons are the lessons that I mentioned in the video that show all the details for carving words and patterns. You’ll also find out how to make your own patterns. You’ll learn several ways to transfer you patterns and how to get great results. You’ll also see some advice on how to display your carvings. These detailed video lessons are very much like attending a live class – only better. It’s better because you have a front row seat at all times. There are now interruptions from other students. You can learn at your own convenience at your own location, at your own pace, and at any time. One of the advantages that I hear over and over from my student/customers is that you can always replay parts when you need to. Even years later, you can refresh your memory be re-watching the videos.

The skills learned in Carving Letters and Words are valuable for creating custom carvings for any occasion.
