Fillamentum Extrafill PLA contains an awesome amount of glitter within. This filament prints very easy, hides layer lines well, and has great color. There is discussion about layer heights affecting the glitter shine, but I didn’t notice it in testing. Too bad its hard to find in the states. This Vertigo Galaxy (don’t confuse with Vertigo Grey) is a black filament with gold flake. Fillamentum comes in 750 gram size on a plastic spool.

(This source has it in stock and although shipping is high the filament is much cheaper here. The costs balance out to normal US prices if you order 3 rolls from 3D Jake. Shipping took nearly a month to arrive. 🙁 )
