The Admiral did not like the shiny copper look so I brushed on Modern Options Sophisticated Finishes Patina Green. It pretty much immeadiatley turns the copper green. Then I put on a coat of Poly. If you want it shiny I would guess plain wipe on poly. The dog ear issue comes down to just take care.

From the photos I've seen of real copper hulls, at the waterline would be green.  Below would be more like a old copper penny which is darkened copper.
