10 Watermelon Portraits by Edson Oliveira

I’ve recently been publishing some photos of watermelon portraits and pizza portraits and today, I’m sharing some photos of watermelon carvings of people by professional fruit carver Edson Oliveira of Brazil.

Since I am not familiar with Brazilian culture and current events, I cannot tell you if these carved watermelon portraits are of celebrities or if they are of ordinary people. Ultimately, I suppose it does not really matter. Besides showing off Edsons carving skills, the point of this article is to share with you some more images of watermelon portraits to give you some ideas of your own. You can see how Edson carved watermelon portraits with people with glasses and men with beards. You’ll see some with couples. Carved watermelon with images of couples can make great buffet table centerpieces for weddings.

Carving watermelon portraits is a fun hobby that can also be profitable. Caterers who learn to carve watermelon portraits (or have their staff learn to carve watermelons) can really stand out from the competition. Very few catering services currently have the knowledge and skills to create watermelon portraits like these. Freelancers who learn to carve watermelon portraits can offer their services to catering companies who don’t have the ability to carve.

Customers find watermelon portraits to be very memorable decorations that delight their guests and especially please the guest(s) of honor who are the subjects of watermelon carvings.

      You CAN do this. It’s not that hard once you are shown how. And, that is exactly what I teach step-by-step in my Portrait Carving Course.
