Historical use

Linseed oil paint is a traditional paint for painting older houses and buildings, it gives a feeling that cannot be achieved with modern synthetic paint.


Linseed oil paint is very durable and protects surfaces from wear and weathering for a long time. This means that you do not need to repaint as often as with other types of paint.

Natural ingredients

Linseed oil paint is made from linseed oil, pigments and sometimes drying agents. These natural ingredients make linseed oil paint proven and easy to use.

Color fastness

When we break linseed oil paint, we do not use breaking machines or chemical pastes. This means that the color does not fade as easily in sunlight. This means that your house will look fresh and new for longer.

Easy to maintain

Linseed oil paint does not require much maintenance. If the linseed oil in the paint begins to dry and the paint looks dull and dull, you can easily add new linseed oil to the surface and thus make the paint regain its luster and last for many more years. In case of damage, you should always scrape off damaged paint and brush again.

Good adhesion

Linseed oil paint has excellent adhesion and adheres well to most surfaces, including wood, stone and metal. For best adhesion, make sure that the substrate is not too greasy when the paint is applied. It is always important that the paint you paint over adheres properly. The best result is always if you scrape the wood clean and get new paint to attach directly to the wood.
