Hi there - noob question as Iím just starting out and working out what is useful to buy...
I thought I might have a go with copper first to learn soldering skills (plus I quite like the colour). Iíve seen various discussions about using silver solder and then hiding it with decoration or gold to blend in. Iíve also seen an Etsy store that sells copper solder (I think in the US).
I can get 1mm copper solder wire on eBay that claims to be Ďideal for hobbies & jewellery makingí but I noticed that Cookson Gold donít list copper solder in their own clearly more specialist catalogue. And that makes me think that perhaps there is something more I need to know about using copper.

So folks, what do I need to know?
