SPECIAL NOTE:
Venture Foil has been discontinued by 3M.
We will be replacing Venture Foil with American Made foil by EDCO Supply.
THE FOLLOWING STYLES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE ONCE VENTURE IS GONE:

  • All 1.5 mil thickness foils

  • All New Wave styles

All foil sold by Sunshine Glassworks Ltd is made in the USA. Do not confuse this superior quality foil with other inferior quality foils made in China. Others try to pass themselves off as American Made with patriotic sounding names. These offshore brands lack the thickness, quality adhesive and the conformable alloy of Venture's foils making for frustration when foiling and reduced strength of the finished product.

Venture uses an extra thick, heat resistant adhesive providing "quick stick" initial tack and greater bonding power. MasterFoil is made in three thicknesses:

  • 1.5 MIL FOIL is the most popular thickness in the US. If you use a foiling machine or hand foiler, use 1.5 mil foil for best results. The preferred foil for lampshade work. Comes on a roll with red core.
    =All 1.5 mil foil has been discontinued and will no longer be available=

  • 1.25 and 1.0 MIL FOILS are thinner and fold over the edge easier.  Thinner foil is often easier for beginners.

SPECIALTY FOIL includes colored back foils, New Wave foil and copper foil sheets.  Color-backed foil was developed to overcome the copper edge that shows from the back side of your work when using clear glass or mirror.

  • BLACK BACKED FOIL is used when you use black patina. Not sure what foil to use? Black Backed is the safest choice if you're not sure which is best = goes with anything!.

  • SILVER BACKED FOIL is used when you leave the solder silver. 

  • SHEET FOIL comes in 12x12" squares with copper or black back. Cuts easily with a craft knife to make foil overlays, cut custom width foil, etc. 1.25 mil thick.

ALL FOIL IS SOLD ON 36 YARD (108 FT) ROLLS
