Hi !! friends first time am carving a watermelon am not sure how it gonna work because i dont have carving tools and didnt practice on any thing its a direct attack on it but blindly went on doing it after it is finished am happy by the out put ..i know it was not perfect and neat but for the first attempt it was not that bad too...Thanks for the youtube i watched the rose carving on melon.. i have taken pics while carving ..
First take a watermelon i took the small melon because i cant carve the big one as am doing it first time so selected the small one ..and tools i used are a normal kitchen knife small ,craft knife and a pen knife..
First peel the skin where you gonna work.. i peeled the half of the watermelon skin..
Marked the circle with a smooth edge glass..
Then mark the another line out side the circle and peel it so that the red colour of melon expose..
Made the petals by peeling the sections going round
And the inner part is completed and working on the outer petals ..
Then carved leaves at the bottom you cant see them clearly bcoz leaves i carved looks like petals :P
Peel the skin around the whole carving so that the carving done is exposed with outlines.
Tadaa here we done carving ..i have cut a small piece of melon so that it can stand..and i have taken pics in 3 views front,side and top views.. :)
its the front view
Top view ..
Hope u liked it..
Thanks for stopping by..have a nice day..
