I have aluminium foil with me - there's nothing written on it's box - so I'd assume its standard aluminium foil used to wrap food? I have a solder unit - which I don't have much experience with - but I think it could be used to solder wires to the foil.

You cannot solder to aluminum with lead or tin-based electrical solders. You can solder to aluminum with special low-melting point aluminum alloys such as Alumaloy, but that is rather expensive.

Aluminum would need a mechanical or conductive paint attachment. You can temporarily connect wires to aluminum foil with alligator clips or paper clips.

You can solder to copper foil. I just found my copper foil today.

Even scrap circuit board salvaged from junk electronics will work. You can use a piece that has some groundplane copper on the surface. Just sand off the paint where you need to connect to it. You can sand or grind it thinner, but do not inhale the dust -- use a dust mask.

Can you get copper foil? Is this for temporary use (recovery)?
