Reactive vessels?

I am a relative newbie at henna :).

I have a question about the vessel in which you prepare the henna for
application. Most 'how-tos' I've read on the Internet say that
ceramic or stainless steel is preferred - however, I was wondering if
anyone had experimented with copper - either boiling the lemon/sugar
mixture in it or 'resting' the paste (waiting for it to release it's
dye) in it.

I know that some of the reactive qualities in copper are desired in
the culinary sense - just wondering if it would make some difference
here.
