Paint it to look shiny?

You might let it weather to the natural green
patina, and then paint over that to get the
copper color you want. But you do have to re-
paint from time to time. The onion domes on
St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow are painted copper
over a wood frame, and that was built in the
1460's.
