You could use Copper sulfate or copper nitrate with heat. One will give a bluer color the other a greener color. Sodium Thio Sulphate (B&W photographic fixer) can be used to change the colors. There are a zillion potenital "greens" that can be applied to copper materials,,,, get a patina book and overwhelm yourself,,,, I do every time I open one of mine up and look!!!! Also, Art Nevou (spelling) (in the resources section on the AM site) AKA Ron Young has a couple of "propritary" Greens available for copper, that are VERY fast and easy.
