Uh, WHY do you want to attach balloon foil to fabric? This is screaming "horrible idea" to me in so many ways.

Reference pics? Is this for a wearable garment? Are you relying on the stretchiness of the material to remain stretchy? Is the thing you're gluing it to meant to move or flex? What are you trying to achieve? There's a lot you aren't telling us, and the answer to your question depends on that information.

E6000 is a great adhesive, yes, and it does flex, but gluing to fabric is not permanent. Also, you mentioned your fabric is stretchy. Applying E6000 to your fabric means it will no longer stretch. Also, your foil will probably tear.

On what? The fabric or the foil?
FF9 cosplay? Hit me up!

I now have a Tumblr. Sometimes I use it.

It ended up doing what I wanted it do after a few tests

Maybe try not to call me out on having horrible ideas, yeah?

By the way, I believe those balloons are made with mylar foil, in case you need to know that for internet searches.

mylar film is closer to plastic than than metal foil. I agree with EB, sounds like a terrible idea.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
My Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/penlowe I make non-fitted custom things to ship within the continental US. I only do fitted garments for those whom I can meet in person.
