I just changed my eBay ID. If I had known it was so easy I would have done it ages ago! It's now Maggie_Bennett. I'll post a link to Khonsu's auction when it goes live!

Computer problems

This evening my computer was giving me a "hard drive not found"-type of error. Tech support wasn't able to help since it's a hardware problem, but after I got off the phone with them I kept messing with it and was able to get it to work again. But I have a feeling it could fail any minute, so just in case it does please be aware that I'm not intentionally ignoring anything! I will do my best to keep up with email etc. if it does go out again. Khonsu's auction is already scheduled for Tuesday night so that should go live regardless of my computer issues. Hopefully when I talk to tech support again tomorrow they will help me get the computer fixed so this won't happen again!

"Khonsu"--CM Sham

That custom Sham from my last post is finally finished and named! He is "Khonsu", and I am quite pleased with him. I'm going to put the information from the page I'm working on for him here. He'll be going up on eBay next week--starting March 16.

Introducing "Khonsu"

Khonsu is a customized Breyer "Sham". Every inch of this sculpture has been resculpted by me, Maggie Bennett, leaving him entirely new--a true drastic custom. While he still maintains Sham's original pose, I have corrected flaws such as Sham's wildly differing leg lengths and odd proportions. I've also made him into a gelding, which I felt better fit his feel.

After completing the sculpture I have finished him to a softly dappled rose grey (bay gone grey). He is delicately detailed all over with his dapples following hair patterns. Also note his detailed mane and tail, showing the long lines of individual hairs. His finishwork includes acrylics (airbrushed and handpainted), archival ink, and colored pencil. He has been thoroughly sealed for durability.

Since he is a customized Breyer he is eligible to show at Breyer-only shows such BreyerFest Live. I would consider him LSQ (live show quality), but he has not been shown.

I have included many pictures of him; click on any of them to view them larger. If you'd like more pictures just contact me!
