Ottosson Linseed Oil Paint is manufactured with care at their facility in Genarp, Sweden. In the late 80's, Gunnar Ottosson dedicated himself to developing his own brand of traditional linseed oil paints, working to create a long-lasting and easy to use product inspired by past craftsmen.

The paint has two main ingredients: cold-pressed, raw linseed oil that has had the impurities removed and real, natural pigments. At Ottosson, a triple-cylinder mixer is used for "grinding" paint in order to incorporate the natural pigments evenly into the linseed oil. A technique documented in literature dating back to the 16th Century.  

Some paints are ground in modern dissolver mixers, while others require a special rolling mill to achieve best results. An important aspect in creating such intense yellows and bright blues for example. Ottosson Linseed Oil Paints are all formulated with zinc, a natural fungicide that creates a slightly harder surface.

Designed for both exterior and interior wood surfaces, Ottosson Linseed Oil Paint is also an excellent rust inhibitor and can be used on a wide variety of projects, including siding, trim, windows, with DANA Linseed Oil Putty, new and old construction, fittings, wood and metal fences, etc.

An excellent choice for professionals, as well as homeowners looking for a long-lasting, durable paint that does not trap moisture and cause wood rot. Appropriate for historic, Landmark status properties, as well as modern architecture. It is safe to use, safe to live with, and safe for the environment
