I've tried it with no success. The arc needs to find the ground. I tried using copper foil over it leaves a mess under doesn't find the ground. Does make me wonder if a dicro coating could be enough to make something happen. I do have about a ton of dicro disks used for the space program. Never found a use for it. I think it's coated vycor or quartz slumping even at high temps yielded little results. I'll give it a go and report back. Please let me know if he discovers something new you never know unless you try.
