Drop the iso to 100, set the camera on a tripod, take an image on program mode.
Look at the recorded aperture and shutter speed.
Set the camera on manual
Adj the settings to match, shoot a frame.
Adjust the shutter speed to a longer exposure, take a frame
Revel in the fact that you get instant feedback on the camera back.
Repeat the twiddling till you get what you want.
You can even close the aperture to a really small pin hole, get awesome depth of field and take a 3 second exposure while playing a flashlight on your subject.
And you don't have to wait 2 days to see a contact sheet of your experiments!

The Shadow knows!
Try getting one really long piece ( matte white colored, nothing shiny ) and use it in one continuous piece for the back and curving it around for the bottom where the marker sits on it. Try not to conform the paper to the shape of your box, or fold it in any way, just drape it.
If you are comfortable using regular lights, you could always add a set just to light the background, using the current set to just to light the marker. Just make sure you flag off the back two lights.
