I'm thinking it might because a capacitive stylus doesn't need to be continuously conductive: it just needs enough conductive material in it to cause a distortion of the screen's electrostatic field.

If nobody has tried it, could somebody please? Take a chunk of alumide with a flat surface of at least the size of a flattened fingertip and see if a phone or tablet screen reacts to it.
