Self-capacitance and material properties.

While looking at some basic capacitor information I ran into a concept I hadn't really thought about before, self-capacitance. While perusing the article section on wiki I began to wonder if the material type would have an effect on the self-capacitance of a material.

Essentially, my question is this:
For two objects of identical geometry and volume, and same applied voltage, would a difference in the relative permittivity (or perhaps some other property of the material making up either object) lead to a difference in the self capacitance of the material.

Thanks for any help.
