Thai Carving Techniques On Melons And Squash

>>  9/11/2009

It is a good time in September to practise thai carving techniques on fruit and vegetables. There are a few reasons why you should to do that in September.

1. It is a harvest time. You can get vegetables for free from your garden. We grow pumpkins and squash ourselves. They are easy to cultivate. 
Pick medium size squash for improving your carving skills. It is a pleasure to carve on its soft skin.

2. September is perfect time to give farmer market a visit. You will come across amazingly cute baby pumpkins and squash there that will give you an idea for new creating. 

Why I say the squash and young pumpkins are perfect for THAI carving is that they are the right condition for carving the intricate Thai designs. Just take a time to compare a soft squash with a hard-as-stone watermelon which usually grown on western continents. You will understand what I am talikng about. The other reason for the squash is it's price. The squash and pumpkins are cheaper than watrmelon.

After improving your knife skills on squash you will be much confident with carving watermelons. With having more carving pracice you are able to carve beautiful designs and you can do it for money.

Pumpkin Lights

>>  9/10/2009

Do you do pumpkin lights for Halloween only? 

I carve pumpkins every time when I get one to my hands. I can't miss the amazing season of the Fall festivals, harvest fairs and Halloween. The baby pumpkins are my favorite materials. I hunt for them at the local farmer markets or at my mom's garden, and sometimes bring them from the other countries (huh, that sounds like a pumpkin addiction).

These lights were my very first try of carving pumpkins. To do this I picked up dark green pumpkins of a size right of a candle to set inside.

The baby pumpkins are soft, easy and fast to work with. For your first pumpkin designs you may want to choose simple tattoo images as a scorpion, Hard Rock's heart, flowers and any suitable patterns
.
Silly faces and Moon cat are the must-have images for Halloween along with a spider on the net and all of "Boo" and "Spooky".
You will quickly turn a few small pumpkins to the lights in an hour.

Enjoy your pumpkin carving together with your family members. Remember to take photographs of yours with pumpkins to save remembrances of the wonderful time you spent together.

Wedding Fruit Buffet With Sea Themed Fruit Sculptures

It was a signifacnt day for Igor and Yana, a young couple whose wedding party was arranged in a marine style. The recieption hall was decorated with baloon figures in shape of octopus, shrimps and seahorses. The wedding flower bouquets were arranged in vases with sand and seashells. 

My job was to decorate a buffet table with fruit carving arrangements picturing underwater world. We decided on making the following fruit sculptures and platters as a watermelon sailing boat, coral reef and a melon shell with tropical fish.

The sailing boat was filled with watermelon balls.
