Its been a long time since I wanted to write something about fruit carving... But I need to get my facts right first. Last Friday I conduct a fruit carving class for may student, they were all excited as they never done it before.. so I explain to them that fruit carving originated from Asian countries such as Thai, and China... In China the technique of carving that they use are: they use chisel to carve, they carve a live shaped sculpture, such as bird, tiger and so on.... where as in Thai the technique are different, the use knives, curved knives, they carve in to floral shaped master pieces... Another thing in Thailand the ladies who do the fruit carving but when the skill has evolve into its neighbor country such as Malaysia, its the opposite... the man can do better fruit carving then the ladies...
Here are the tools that I use to do my fruit carving
Steps of making the fruit carving come alive..
