This is a deep glitter orange from Proto-Pasta made with Tom Sanladerer the strange name is to spell out TOM. However I’m not sure where the gold comes in other than the gold flake used in the glitter. The color was meant to mimic the color of a Lotus car. As always with Proto-Pasta, the filament prints perfectly.

I'm becoming a huge fan of Proto-Pasta's opaque glitter filaments. The glitter is often more subtle than other brands but it still leaves a feeling of magic in the color. There are no concerns printing with a normal nozzle. The filament itself prints easy and hides lines and imperfections well. There is discussion about layer heights affecting the glitter shine, but I didn't notice it in testing. This filament is normally sold in half kilogram weight on a cardboard spool.
