Im making candle holders from recycled bottles by cutting the bottles. I know I can sand the glass edges to smooth them... but I really wanted to add a nice touch by covering the edges. Ive seen vintage bowls and cups that have a nice (metal, silver plate?) cover over the rims... Im wanting to get that look.

Like this:

I work with my hands and dont have anything to bend or soldier.......... but I really want to get this type of RIM look while also covering any sharp glass edges...

......................any suggestions?

Thanks.

Welcome!  Smiley

If you could find a really soft lead that is mailable by hand. Otherwise perhaps a paint.
