Self inductance of caps/ self capacitance of coils is a technique
sometimes used in radio freq. design... It can be done, but you would
need to carefully work it out. I doubt if a shop bought cap would
fortuitously work like this for a coil. Maybe consider the reverse:
aprimary coil wound of a flat ribbon wire such that there was a high
cap. between windings?
