Ranger Memory Foil Tape~ Although
this item is discontinued by the mfg, I did find a vendor who still had some and this has been a very popular item.
This tape is 1/4" wide and has 15 feet on a roll. You can use this tape to wrap glass, embellish cards, scrapbooks,
altered projects, etc. This tape is not for use when you are using solder though. This is aluminum and is a bright
silver color. It is also self-adhesive.
Memory Foil Tape, Copper~ This is a self adhesive tape that can be used to add to glass, paper, altered art, etc.
This tape is suitable to use with solder.
It measures 1/4" wide and is 15 feet long.
Amaco Brass Metal Foil Tape~Decorative, self adhesive metal tape for use in wrapping
glass for soldering or just as a purely decorative element on the glass. You can change its color by using the Alcohol
Inks. You can rubber stamp for an interesting pattern or sandpaper for a burnished look. You can also use
it to edge cards, scrapbook pages, books, etc. You are also able to emboss a design into it by placing on a soft surface
like a mouse pad. This tape measures 1/4" wide and 16 feet long. I don't see any difference in it from the
Ranger self adhesive foil tape, so I don't understand the price difference.
Real Metal Copper Foil Tape~ Measures 1/4" x 9 feet. This is real copper, so unless it is sealed,
over time it would gather a patina. This is also acid free. Sandwich your artwork between 2 microscope slides
and create a stained glass type look by wrapping around the perimeter of the slides. Great Look! Try accenting
it also with beads and wire. Since it is real copper, it may have variations in color due to patination--but it looks
great. You can polish it if you want a completely solid copper color.
Silver Foil Tape~ Similar to copper tape but it is NOT metal or coated with
metal so it is striclty for decoration- not for soldering. Package of 1/4" x 9'.
DID YOU KNOW??? I had a customer order some of the 1/2" copper metal tape (no longer comes
in that size) to deter the slugs in her yard from eating all her plants. Evidently, when the slugs try to cross
the tape- they get a little shock.. and they don't even need the collars on. So we have a new use for the
copper tape. This customer lives in Washington state and it is obviously a challenge there to keep the critters out
of the garden.
Thanks Lori for that tip.
Wave Foil Tape~ This tape is approx. 5/16" wide and comes in brass color. Similar to the above
tape but has the nice scalloped edging for a unique look to your soldered pieces or as is as a nice decorative embellishment.

Find 1x3, 2x2 and 1x1 glass here
My sample using the 1x1 glass, soldered and I have attached a small square jump ring at the top. These
are soooo much easier to solder on than the round ones.
