Matte Black Cinefoil is a matte black aluminum material that virtually soaks up light.
It is aluminum foil, thicker than the one used for cooking, coated with black finish.

Cinefoil is also used to make animatable clothes and other props. For example, as Kubo starts his show, his characters are conjured from flat pieces of paper that fly into the sky and magically fold into characters and objects. Stop-motion origami is something new for a Laika film and presented animators with a challenge. "They would just leave me with a bunch of sheets of paper and say, ‘Go figure it out,’” Mr. Parry recalled. He eventually decided to use cinefoil, a kind of malleable aluminum material. That was covered with paper towels and painted.

If you buy several feet of foil, they will be 1 piece, continuous length, 12" wide by number of feet you select.
