Copper hydroxide electroplating

i just noticed by scrubbing some sandpapered titanium with copper hydroxide, then using the titanium as cathode that it turned the copper hydroxide into copper oxide and copper metal
i thought it was gonna come off by touch, but it didnt, it adheres very well and it forms in a second or less at just 12V1A

this may be possible with other hydroxides, my idea is that the hydroxide is directly reduced to metal, maybe submerging a cathode into a suspension of a metal hydroxide could do

i came across this when i was fooling around with a failed electrolytic dissolution setup for copper and a toothbrush- the way science was meant to be.

~25 drops = 1mL @dH2O viscocity - STP
Truth is ever growing - but without context theres barely any such.
