Have you ever wanted to carve watermelon roses?
To a newcomer, fruit carving can seem daunting. Especially when you see lots of photos of carvings by experts and pros.
Carving watermelon roses can be easier than it looks when you get good instructions.
Today, I’ll be showing you watermelons carved with roses by students . In many cases these are their first or second attempts at carving the rose design. Some have carved their rose patterns into watermelons and some have carved cantaloupe, honeydew and other melons. All of these students have learned to carve watermelon roses from my video lessons.
You can see from the first carvings of these students that it is not as difficult as it may seem.
Students Who Have Shared Their Photo While Learning to Carve Watermelon Roses
You can learn how to carve the patterns of roses, buds and leaves in my Carving Watermelons video lessons. The Carving Watermelons – Roses, Buds and Leaves lessons are one of the set of lesson taught in my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners.
Keep in mind that these are not professional photos. They are simply photos taken by each student that they sent to me.
Rose Flores used her watermelon carving to decorate the center of a fruit salad.
Naz Begun carved a white rose for either a light color small melon or she was practicing with potato. I can’t exactly tell from the photo. I know she has used potatoes while practicing carving flowers as taught in the Yam and Turnip Flower lessons. Potatoes are great for practice because they are easily available and very inexpensive. Before you practice with potatoes, you should know that they do oxidize and turn brown very easily. For that reason, potatoes are NOT good for making finished carvings that you will want to display. They are only good for practicing.
The next three rose carvings in watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew were carved by Amali Vishwanathan who lives in the Netherlands. She is also a student of my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners.
Remember that all of these photos show some of the first attempt for each student to carve watermelon roses and other melons. If they can do it, then so can you!
Now that you have seen how others have carved some of their first watermelon roses, you might want to carve watermelon roses of your own. You can learn exactly how, with detailed step-by-step instructions in my video lessons, Carving Watermelons – Roses, Buds and Leaves. This lesson is part of the 11 week Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners. It is also available as an individual DVD. And you get online access so that you can get started right away.
