Toner Plastics released a limited edition pearl PLA. The lustrous shine on this filament seems deeper than other silk PLAs. I’m not sure how much longer this will be available. This prints just like a PLA but your hot end needs to be a bit hotter. Toner Plastics are made in the USA. The filament is sold in 1kg sizes on a plastic spool.
