The "A rose by any other name is a Malma" mirror

Malma Mirror, clay, paint, varnish, glue

Using a self-hardening clay (no kiln needed), form your roses, then once dried, paint and varnish them. Glue them to the Malma mirror with bathroom-tile glue, to which you can add paint, so that it will blend in with your color of roses.
