I recently participated in a watermelon carving competition for which I carved a Watermelon Swan (or is it a peacock?) that won the second place award. I posted lots of photos of all the other winners and participants in an earlier blog post about the watermelon carving competition.
As a result of seeing the photos of my carved watermelon swan, I got a lot a requests asking for more details and information about my watermelon swan. So I made up this short video to show you more details.
Details of Carved Watermelon Swan
If you are an intermediate or advanced carver, this may give you some ideas for creating your own watermelon swan. If you are a beginner, perhaps you will be inspired to learn more. Take a look.
Would you like to carve a watermelon swan?
You can learn to carve simple apple swans in my Hearts and Roses video lessons. When you order your Hearts and Roses DVD, you will also get immediate online access to your lessons so that you can start carving right away.
Students who have learned to carve apple swans from my Hearts and Roses video lessons have taken the same carving design and used it to carve swans from watermelons, honeydew and cantaloupe.
If you are inspired to learn the art of watermelon carving, you may be pleased when you find out that it is easier than you may think.
I show you exactly how, step-by-step in my “Carving Watermelons – Roses, Buds and Leaves” video lessons. There you will learn how to carve patterns of roses, rose buds and leaves in watermelon and other melons.
Why Carve Watermelon Swans?
Swans are great to use a decorations for weddings and for anniversary celebrations. Because swans mate for life, they are graceful symbol of long term marriage. Guests are enchanted and delighted when they see beautiful carved fruit swans as part of a table setting or buffet display.
Whether you carve a simple apple swan or a detailed watermelon swan, I hope that you enjoy the creative process.
