Introduction: How to Make a Smiley Face Orange

Hello. In this instructable I'll show you how to sculpt smiley faces in oranges. You can turn any orange into a Smiley Face Orange

You'll only need an orange, a marker and a very sharp knife. I used a ceramic knife but you can use any thin sharp knife.

Step 1: Draw the Mouth

Draw the mouth on the orange using a white board marker. Make sure you draw a large enough mouth to get a nice visible expression on the orange's face. Decide now if it's going to be a funny, sad, angry or smiley face or if it will have anything in the mouth (I used grapes for two of them).

Step 2: Peel Off the Orange Layer

Using a sharp knife peel off the orange layer inside the drawing so you're left with the white part of the skin. Make sure you don't go too deep. You don't want to get to the pulp just yet.

Step 3: Sculpting the Mouth

You can first draw the line where the jaws meet using a marker. You can also draw the teeth using a toothpick so you don't leave traces of the marker where you don't want them. Or you can go ahead and start sculpting like I did. After a few oranges you will be an expert. You should make the upper teeth a little bit bigger. When you sculpt the teeth you are basically taking out small triangles between the teeth so you're left with the white trapeze shape of the teeth. That's it!. Your smiley face is now finished. Post some pictures with it in the comment secion below. Also, if you liked my instructable please vote for me in the "Three Ingredients Challenge". Thank you.

No, unless you want to ruin your fruit sculpture.
