Intro: Dexter Trophy Case for UNDER $20
The best cost DIY Dexter TV Series Trophy Case.
Step 1: Materials (Amazon)
Here is what you will need ($) TOTAL=$18.50
-United Scientific WSB050 Wooden Slide Storage Box, Holds 50 Slides
-72-Pieces Blank Microscope Slides & 100-Pieces Square Cover Glass
What I Already Had:
- Red Acrylic Paint
- Wood Glue
- Paper Plate
- Tooth Picks
- Screw Driver
Step 2: Start Collecting
-Make the Slides, that way they aren't as wet and fragile
-Mix the wood glue and red acrylic paint till a nice Blood color forms.
-Trial and error is the key for the correct amout for the right circle. You have 72 slides and only need 38 so don't be worried if you mess up.
- There are 4 screws for each hinge and 4 pin nails for each latch that will need to be removed (I used a knife to pry up the nails). That way you can reposition them so it matches more to the Real thing.
Step 3: Dark Passanger
-Add the names. It is easier to do so while its all apart. I chose some names that weren't Tropheys yet still kills from this list:
-Move the 2 hinges to the rear of the box equally apart and lined up with the joint for smooth operation.
-Only 1 of the latches will be used to more resemble the TV Show.
