The bright metallic coloured foils are manufactured by adding a coloured dye to an anodized layer on the surface of an aluminium foil. Except for traces of dye, they are 100% aluminium.
These coloured foils are all 'light weight' ;2 mil thickness which is approximately four times as thick as a heavyweight aluminium kitchen foil. ;Each sheet is extra large - a total of 5 feet (152 cm) in length. A special manufacturing process makes ArtEmboss extremely soft and pliable.
