Recommendations for weathered stone filament?

Any recommendations for filament that creates a nice weathered stone look? Sure I can create it with paint but if I can save the time...

Any material is okay.

I'm not going by the pictures on the internet, I actually have the colors here in front of me, but I think Paramount 3D "ABS" Castle Limestone Gray & Primordial Earth are two very close bets. your still going to have to take them out and kick them around the yard for a great weathered rock look though.

No problem, I'm good at kicking stuff around the yard 🙂

I've never used Paramount filament before, they have an interesting range of colors. Did you by any chance look at their Medusa Stone Gray? Looks interesting too. Great to see they offer reasonable samples. I just ordered a handful.

I've printed with every single one of their ABS filaments I love their ABS, I've also printed there PLA's but I find them a tad bit on the soft side, meaning they print at really low temps and don't have high or even as high as something like Hatchbox heat resistance for a PLA class of material. Their PETG's are top notch wonderful colors of course. I also have purchased their TPU 92A the colors,,.... the colors,,,,

I'm looking into an ASA purchase from them soon, I maintain a relationship with them, and they are Chicago based.

 

Good Luck, I hope you find what your looking for.

Just dawned on me that I didn't address Medusa Stone Gray.

Relative to the Medusa Stone Gray, you said weathered  stone the Medusa Stone Gray is more green not jade but IMO not weathered. I would also avoid their PETG's they are very bright regardless of choice of color.
