I've got alot of aluminum flashing around the windows on the front of my
house. These would look much better if they were copper colored...any
suggestions on paint or some kind of way to change the color?

This is actually a lot of work for a slight cosmetic improvement! If
Aluminum is not frosted nor oxidized, first lightly sand or steel wool the
aluminum, clean with thinner on a rag, dry, then prime with an
aluminum/galvanized metal primer. From there, find a good copper colored
matte or semigloss exterior oil based paint as a topcoat. I would avoid
metallic paints, as they may not last, and the key is to match real copper.
You could even have your paint dealer computer match the color value a piece
of copper plumbing or flashing, to assure a realistic look.
