Adding color to copper organ pipes


I work for one of the largest pipe organ manufacturers in the united states-we are always trying new things-for many years we have used copper to make pipes-the visual effect is guite stunning in the proper setting-we have used a process that we know as "flaming"-to give a different look to the copper-we would like to enhance it even further-but don't know what to do-the only thing we do to flame the copper is heat the clean surface with a small blow torch- would any one know of a chemical that could be applied to bring out the colors created during the flaming process? hoping to hear some great ideas
