DIY Indoor Outdoor concrete lamp 2
This is scrap from printing shops. They produce probably hundreds of pounds of scrap strips trimmed from the edges of their print jobs every day.

You won't be able to put pants on this mannequin with the feet permanently attached to the bottom of the frame like that. I have two options:1) construct the frame so that it can be taken apart just behind the heels and just in front of the toes. You'll need to lay the mannequin down to put pants on and take them off, so this may not be especially convenient if you're using it as a sewing form. But it will work.2) Skip the standing base and instead embed a sturdy suit/coat hanger in the shoulders and neck when you pour the foam in the torso. This will let you hang the mannequin from a closet rod, coat rack, hook in the ceiling, where ever you can find a sturdy hanging point.

Nice project! You might be able to dye the baby oil too, with candy colors meant for coloring white chocolate. (I'm not positive because mineral oil doesn't always mix with vegetable based oil. Get the candy colors at a confectioner's supply store or online.) If that doesn't work, substitute dyed veggie oil for the baby oil. Then you'll have a two-tone "lava lamp" notebook, instead of color and clear.
I'm sure this wouldn't fool someone familiar with kintsuge, but to my untrained eye it looks like a great alternative! Your mother's lion is beautiful. You did a great job!
