Want to print metal objects? Tired of that plastic look? Why not try our speciality metal filaments. ColorFabb BronzeFill is a PLA mixed with Bronze particles so you can actually print in bronze; make your own bronze statues. This is a 750g spool available in 1.75mm or 2.85mm bronzeFill metal 3D printer filament.
When it first comes off the 3D printer your model will have that laser sintered matte finish.If you want something shinier just sand and polish to give it a fantastic bronze finish. Its ideal for making jewelry and because of the bronze particles, it even has that heavier, metal, feel.
For best results you will need to increase the flow rate by 4-8% although this will depend on your machine. For the best shiny finish start sanding with 120-180 grit sand paper then work your way up through the grades to 600 and finish off with a soft cloth and copper polish. The filament sands easily so be careful that you do not over-sand.
