Great Filaments for lithophanes

The type of filament you choose has a lot of impact on the end result of your lithophane! On any normal day, a filament with Polymax is a much better filament, but not when you want some nice contrast and warm colors to your lithophane. That’s why we have selected the best filaments for lithophanes!

White PLA 1.75mm 1KG

If we need to pick our favorite filament for lithophanes, it will be Esun Cool White PLA+ Pro without a doubt. This filament accentuates the image of the lithophane. A point of consideration, the filament is not ideal for the windowsill. You get the best results with Esun Cool white using a bright light. 

An other great white PLA, which people really love is Hatchbox white. This filament fits the winowsill a lot better. The filament gives the lithophane a little orange glanze. 

Every white PLA we selected are known to accentuate the image very well. They all have their own unique details that makes it just a little different.

Silver/Grey PLA 1.75mm 1KG

Silver and grey filaments work also wonderfull for lithophanes. We highly recommend 3D Solutech Silver Metal, this PLA is really made to be a lithophane filament! Just like Esun Cool white, this one is definitely our favorite. 

Other awesome silver/grey filaments are Eryone Silky Shiny, CCtree grey and Hatchbox grey PLA. These filaments work also very well with lithophanes.

Colored PLA 1.75mm 1KG

Some images have a general color theme. In combination with colored filaments, it will give an awesome effect to your lithophane! For example, if you have an image with crystal clear water with fishes it will fit perfectly with 3D Soltech Aqua Blue.

When you are looking for colored filament for lithophanes, 3D Solutech is your brand. The filaments we picked from this brand are known to give great results!

Light sources

We would like to have a fitting light since lithophanes need a light source to shine through their true beauty. We have picked the best-known lights for lithophanes.

LED lights

LED lights work well for the use to light up your lithophane. We have selected two types of LED lights. Led bulbs are great when you create a sphere or pumpkin lithophane.

LED strips are overall great for the use of lithophanes. Certainly when you are making a framed box around the lithophane. LED strips often come with multiple colors. Because of this, you can create an additional effect in your lithophane!

LED puck lights

The LED puck lights are an easy way to lighten your lithophane. Itslitho provides you with a puck holder attribute to support these puck lights behind your lithophane.


With the ItsLitho lithophane maker tool you can add a nightlight attribute to your lithophane. The nightlights below are compatible with this attribute!

USB keychain lights

USB keychain lights are a great way to light up your lithophane. It is small, practical and easy to install.
