Silk Gold 3D Printer PLA Filament 1.75 mm 1 KG (2.2 LBS) Spool 3D Printing Material CC3D Shine Silky Shiny PLA Metal Gold Like Metallic PLA Filament [link]
Printed a Sleeping Beauty's crown for my wife.
I bought two rolls of TECBEARS PLA, one black one white, and they printed fine. So I bought a roll of their shiny silk silver and, oh, that stuff is crap. The only time I got any layer adhesion was when I switch to a 0.6mm nozzle. I'd avoid their silk stuff.
This actually reminds me that I picked up several rolls of CC3D Silk Gold. It's a little difficult to work with finding the right temperature (I have to run at 215-220C), but it is gorgeous when printed. There's a picture of a Rose Vase printed with the gold in the Amazon reviews and, in person, it's even prettier than the picture lets on.
Thanks in advance for any input!
I just switched to this brand of filament (details below). Old filament had a visible z seam, but none of this extra stuff or the stringing. I am using the same cura settings and temperature settings for both filaments (old filament was hatchbox black pla). I was even printing the same file with the other filament. I am getting these extra sections hanging off my print right near my z seam (beginning about 1 cm counter-clockwise of the z seam (the z seam is exactly at the back of my printer, if that is relevant). There is also stringing inside the print, not sure if that is related. I suspect that it has something to do with the ‘wipe between layers’ setting (which is enabled), since they are only happening in that one spot on the print, it is near the z seam, and they are all going in the same direction, for the same length. What do you think?

Here is the a link. I threw the box away and I don't see it on the roll.
It was this from amazon!
I can't get over how amazing this filament looks. This is my 5th "gold" filament purchase and I think I've finally found a filament that actually looks like gold!
Most "gold" filaments look like bronze or worse, goldenrod (yellow). This is Zhuopu New Materials (ugh, someone tell this company about branding) "Silk Gold" PLA. Now that my second 1kg spool has been ordered I feel better about sharing it (because... They might run out... forever!):
IMPORTANT: I have absolutely no affiliation with this company. I simply bought a whole bunch of filaments labeled "gold" from Amazon with my own money and this one just happened to blow my mind.
I was so excited about how well this print turned out I made a video!
Here's the model if too you're interested in printing your own Low-poly Rose Twist Vase:

To understand why I'm so excited about this filament find, here's a comparison between what most manufacturers consider "gold" filament and this filament:
How can BamTack! call their filament "gold"?! It's bronze!

Can't be sure, but it looks like Silk Gold filament. I bought some [link] and it's shiny and beautiful. It takes more than a month to ship from China, though.
It looks like SainSmart is doing Silk filaments now: [link]
The filament might be by this company.... if you look at on one of the reviewers photos of benchy, it looks pretty cool. Note this link is for a gold color.... 3D Printer Filament PLA 1.75 mm Silk Gold 1 KG ( 2.2 LBS ) Spool 3D PLA Printing Material [link]
