Re: tin can sculptures

Aluminum soda cans are MUCH thinner than tin cans. We didn't have any
trouble with cuts or sliced fingers. One way to finish a raw edge (like on
a wing) is to make small cuts along the edge and then fold under, but it's
not alwyas necessary.

>tried making some tin can jewelry and gave up because of all the cuts.
>also, is there a way to make the edges dull when complete?
