This Real Gold PLA has a nice golden brown color. To me it appears more bronze than gold but it still looks great as long as you know what you are buying. The color is actually very good. It would work well for your next antique looking prop or a steam punk addition. This color slightly reacts to UV light.

3D Solutech is a quality made in USA filament. They have a wide selection and are budget friendly. 3D Solutech is a great source for transparent, silk (called Ultra), and normal filaments. I only had one bad roll and  they replaced it very quickly without hesitation. A bad roll can happen to anyone. 3D Solutech is sold in 1KG sizes on plastic spools. They also include stickers with their rolls.
