As mentioned, maybe sleeve some other method inside thin wall copper tubing probably the lesser expense option, then there is no mimicking involved you have real aged copperUsing it for exposed work on a outdoor gazebo, trying to mimic how copper ages when left exposed to the elements

They fixed that in the 2020 code. There was never an intent to prohibit red brass from other applications, but that code language prior to the 2020 code did exactly that.What's the application? 344.10 seems to have some limitations.
344.10 (A) Atmospheric Conditions and Occupancies.
(1) Galvanized Steel, Stainless Steel, and Red Brass RMC.
Galvanized steel, stainless steel, and red brass RMC shall be permitted under all atmospheric conditions and occupancies.
I would think UF could be pulled through copper tubing.
If you are going to make a copper covering why not just cover some UF?Nominal 3/4" pvc conduit has an OD of 1.050 inches.
Nominal 1" copper 'type M' tubing has an OD of 1.125" and a wall of 0.035", meaning an ID of 1.055 inches.
By the nominal dimensions it 'should' fit, but with no room for tolerances and no room for things like fittings.
I wonder if you could get hard temper copper sheet formed into a coil that would wrap around the conduit with a seam that you could hide against the wall.
Cover it all in matching wood??
