What is your goal here? I googled and saw a guy doing just foil sticky paper that the diode seem to do just fine but are you trying to do something like etching on glassware or something?

I am sure with the reflection of the light foil is going to be tricky to begin with if not impossible although he seems to do it somehow. This might be a trial and error for you my friend most of the laser foil engraving sites show it for 40w CO2 tube engravers as they are more capable being the they operate at a different light frequency. As seen here on this plastics website for tips on using the laser foil http://s3.amazonaws.com/jpmagento-public/documents/techtips/JPP_TechTips_CreatingLaserEngravedInlays.pdf
