Best Risers for Bowen Busts

I've seen many pictures of collections with acrylic risers that lets you display your collection better making the busts on the back of curio cabinets visible. It seems like a no brainier. Would be interested in hearing recommendations about sizes and brands.

I've been asking about these in the FB groups, but I think I forgot to ask this here.

Brand names, links, and photos would be appreciated!

I don't really know about brand names as far as acryllic risers go, but I go on ebay and look at what they have. There was a specific seller I went through, but it's been a while.

Go to a hardware store and get some plastic tubing, chose the right diameter tubes for your statue or bust base, cut to length making sure both end are cut level, paint them or drape a nice looking silk cloth over them.

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.

I buy Rosetta blocks from Lowe’s and gorilla glue them together then paint them black. Cheap and makes a great looking and solid foundation.
