As title suggests, I'm planning as follows:

1. Various sized cheap polystyrene rings (e.g 4x1 inch)
2. Prime with nickle or graphite spray paint.
3. Brush copper plate.
4. Polish/Buff

The purpose is for primary charge induction and trap terminals in a Kelvin
thunderstom machine, and for investigating constuction of cheap Corona

Has anyone tried this method previously, or have any
suggestions/recommendations? Note this is intended as a cheap method even
If the results are not 'perfect'.

Adhesive aluminum tape is good for this purpose. No need for any priming and the result is quite good.
