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.
