I have a material that took some time to create. I want another one like that, except for the base colours (I'm using a toon setup found online and I want e.g. brown for wood and grey for metal). Please be advised that the question is NOT about copying a mat to another object. Thanks in advance.

You can use the plus sign on the right of the material name to copy and replace your current material.

As you can see below, the former material is still available.

This plus sign is available for many Blender objects, like textures, particle systems or others...

But you may notice that it does not work properly in the node editor :

So, use it in the properties panel...
