This python plug-in strokes or fills the current selection and creates a 3D glossy effect with a dropped shadow. The color, brush, lighting, and shadow are adjustable through the initial dialog. Use the Filters/Light and Shadow/GlossyStroke 3D menu.
Note: Depending on the color, adjusting the opacity of the "volume" layers can give better results.
It is my first GIMP plugin, so any comment, criticism or improvement is appreciated. The 3D effect parameter could certainly be improved.

- The light direction is now opposite to the shadow.
