Hi Victor -

I haven’t done this since the early 80’s, but when I had access to an
electroforming rectifier I used to apply lacquer to an item, then
roll in, or sprinkle with copper dust I had made by filing the edge of
a sheet of copper. I suppose any durable binding agent that keeps the
surface of the copper dust exposed would work. Clear nail polish?
Epoxy?

Good luck,

Dave
