burnishing raku pieces with copper or brass

Hmmmm...... this has me thinking. If I do that and little bits of
copper or brass get on the piece, does that make for interesting
colors on my piece when it's fired?

And if I did burnish with bits of copper and then used a clear crackle
glaze, would I have that neat pinkish color?
