    That's probably because copper is a very soft metal and doesn't lend itself well to applications such as screws. Couldn't you get some normal screws and paint them?

    Do you mean brass screws?

    Edit: quick look on Google shows its pretty easy to copper plate steel screws. best of both worlds there.
