Help designing a high voltage capacitorNot sure how to work the math backwards

I made a few caps for a project out of mason jars and did the math and they seem to be only about .05mf eachI need closer to 6.33I also need caps that can withstand about 10,000 volts so we decided to use 1/8th inch glass as the dielectricWere planning to use cut out pieces of copper on each sideHow much surface area would we need on each side to reach 6.33 mf? Would layering the glass and making a thicker dielectric increase or decrease capacitance? Would you recommend another method like tinfoil and wax paper with several run in parallel?Other related question
