Default How to make a Kickass (and cost effective) Statue Display!

My latest endevour and a quick tutorial...

With a little innovation, 'inexpensive' can be 'effective' as well!

Fantastic! How did you do the glyphs on the top? It looks like the top and base are from a piece of furniture.

Top and base are polystyrene (ORAC decor) painted to look like wood

Glyphs are sculpted in Apoxie sculpt and painted. Here's a close up.

Special no-prize for anyone who can tell what characters the middle row all represent!

Oh wow! Now that I can see it even closer it's even more amazing!

I'm guessing Asgardian but that realm isn't my forte.

Again, really outstanding!

Because for a fraction of the cost of a curio cabinet, you can have this customized, themed cabinet. That's the point.
You'll notice that this theme is 'Thor'...

Some more close ups...
The eventual plan is to have the statues in there correspond with the characters on the comic covers(so, yes, Colossus, Cyclops, Psylocke, Doom and Shellhead will be leaving)...

Right. The symbols over the middle cabinet are the head pieces to the characters I listed, right? Or did you mean all of them? Or did you mean the ones at the bottom? The suspense is killing me!
