I was trying to see how the copper paint would mix with the bear paint. It seems to be that you need 3 parts copper paint to 1 part bear. At that point I would rather just use a pigment paint. I will be looking into how to mix acrylic and copper paint.
One capacitor is simply playing with the stretchy fabric while the other is connected to conductive thread which is sown through the canvas. The canvas has copper paint on it which is extremely conductive. It is interesting because the other conductive thread sown into the canvas becomes non responsive.
