I like to stamp it with alcohol inks and etch it!

How tick is it and want is the finish?
I use copper a bit with my steampunk designs, often playing with simple patinas and crude solder joints.

It enamels well if you can get the piece clean, most of your fine frit will work though the colors can do some interesting things.
Copper is very easy to work with, and shapes super easy after an annealing cycle.
