Yes, you can go to a supply house for T.V. repair parts and get Aquadag
spray, this might be conductive enough but if it isn't use it as a
conductor and plate a layer of copper onto it. I have heard of the use of
brass powders and various adhesives used to make a non-conductive toroid or
sphere conductive but I've never tried those techniques.
