This lavender is a bit more blue than expected. I’d call it a slate blue. However I really like this color and I can’t wait to find a project for it. Let me know what you think would make a good print in Push Plastic Lavender.

Push Plastic has a very well rounded selection of colors which is great news if you are looking for one stop shopping.  Push Plastic PLA is usually sold in 1KG rolls on a plastic spool but they also have larger weights available up to 25kg! In full disclosure I was sent 200g samples of the PLA. The good thing about the large samples is I will be able to add pictures of bigger prints later . The 200g samples are very easy to tangle, I recommend printing the spool holder or buy a full 1kg spool.
