I started off with carving carrot and cucumber leaves in week one. Controlling the knife which believe me is very sharp and one that has a mind of its own needs a lot of skill and manual dexterity!!!My cut fingers will vouch for this, having invested in a whole box of bandaids.
Week two and three progressed to carrot flowers , which came in all shapes and sizes.I am yet to master the perfectly shaped flower.
Week four and I am onto carving turnips, these being larger are I guess easier to manipulate as there is more surface area.Although I must say taming the knife is yet a challenge.
Now on to week five and along came the melon. My knife skills are improving and have only used two plasters all week. :)
I hope to continue for a few more lessons, I will update my progress if my fingers are still intact!!lolz.
Here are some clicks of my amateur carvings.
