This squash carving shows attempts of joining two roses with a few leaves inbetween.
This is my second term of attending carving classes and this term I have been practicing carving roses from vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, turnips, squash and different types of melons. Staring with carving basic single rose the next task is to try nad carve multiple roses on to the same fruit with aweave of inticate leaves in between.
You can get ideas of how to do these carvings by watching this video, although the video is showing a melon carving the basic principle is the same and as a learner it is easier to carve these roses on smaller vegetables such potato and pumpkin.
Here are more detailed videos.
