Get Magnetic with this unique filament
Proto-Pasta's Magnetic Iron PLA is truly one of a kind! Like pure Iron, this filament is attracted to magnetic fields. Translation: magnets stick to it! It also rusts like real iron. To get a rusty iron look, "polish" your finished print with a wire brush to expose more of the iron particles to the air. Then, submerge print in a salty solution for about 2-3 days. Soak for a longer period to achieve a rustier finish. Let the magnetic power of Proto-Pasta's Magnetic Iron PLA draw you in and bring your creative ideas to life! With this unique material at your fingertips, you can create a range of projects with a stunning, rustic metal look, right from the comfort of your home.
