You can buy a plastic strip in many colours. But this has to be put on while tiling!
I think you missed the boat here. I put it in my office bathroom, its great, easy to clean!
No grout on the tops to worry about.
By the way…. nice feature tile, I used it a few times when they came out!

This was my #1 tool back in my days as a tiling apprentice (lots and lots and lots of grouting).

Don't think they are designed for double brick. WA has a particular way of building and unfortunately that's the way a large amount of sills are finished.
