Hi Angelica - there is no traditional size for writing Copperplate. The appropriate size is determined by composition you are working out.

I recommend 1/4 inch x-height for learning and practice as it allows us to see what is happening with the shades and transitions easier than at smaller x-heights. Besides, it is quite difficult to write well at smaller x-heights :-)
