I've never done this but have seen an article in FSM. You can boil the foil with eggshells or vinegar added to water. You'll get different colors with each.
I hope this helps.

Or simply blotting vinegar, with a Qtip, can mildly "age" it. Another one that works, is a solution of phosphoric acid... but you need to keep soda handy as a neutralizing agent... or it will keep attacking the metal, beyond the effect you likely are looking for. Jantz Supply, in Davis Oklahoma is a knifemaking company, that stocks various chemicals for etching and aging metals. They may have something beyond what I just told you, to treat aluminum with, to age it.
