Copper takes to soldering extremely well. Gluing work can be done with two component glue like, for example, those based on cyanoacrylate; in model making, UHU HARD or RUDERER plastic glue can also be used. The sheets can be cut with a SHEARS or a BLADE as long as it is not thicker than 0.2 mm. For larger thicknesses, METAL SNIPS or a saw with a metal blade are recommended. Interesting SURFACE EFFECTS can be achieved by means of a PATINATION AGENT or self-made chemical baths.
