I still don't own any of them yet, but awhile back I asked the same question. Here's a link to the other poll.

I love my aged copper HH!!! I keep a little bit of steel wool in the tin to rub off some of the 'aging' so that it has a different look, or highlights a different area. HTH

I have all three and use different ones depending on the colors I'm using. I mostly used pewter at first but have been drawn to antique brass lately. Overall, I have used pewter the most though.

I started with pewter, but find myself reaching for copper everytime now!

Pewter for me, but I would love to also have the copper.

I am so glad you asked this. I am getting ready to order some for the first time and was wondering which one to get. I am drawn to pewter, since it is so versatile. But I made a card at a stamp convention that used the copper set and really liked it. I still don't know which I will be getting, but this thread has helped a little. Thank you!!

I am spoiled enough to have all three, but my fave is pewter. I would prefer the copper if it stayed bright and shinny, that is my favorite way with copper. Any suggestions from the copper fans?? (sorry for the mini hijack), but I think it might help some people decide which one they like.

I also have all three, but pewter meets my needs most often. I was a little disappointed in the copper also because many of the pieces are almost pewter colored and very little copper color shows. I think that steel wool trick is a good idea and I'll try that.

I love the pewter and the copper and only like the brass!

I'd love to see them add in antique gold and antique silver.

I love my copper so much, I just sit and look at it. When I pet it, I am almost sure it purrs.
