Seeing it now in the picture I realize I still don't like the black. Maybe I should do the sides with marble as well and then put like a red velvet carpet in the middle.
I used newspaper first to measure and cut the exact shapes. Not sure yet what to do with the wall. I could break off the hooks but the round thing can't be cut off.
There is also a pedestral at the bottom of the railing, at first I wanted to leave that off but then there would have been a hole. So I added marble paper to that as well to hide the holes left behind after I cut the figure from it.
For those interested, this is what the whole set would look like:
