Ottosson linseed oil paint is safer to work with, safer to live with, and safer for the environment.

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 the best results. The grinding method is an important aspect in creating such intense yellows and bright blues for example. Additionally, all 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 can be applied to almost any clean, dry surface. It is an excellent rust inhibitor for interior and exterior metal surfaces. Used for a wide variety of applications, including siding, trim, windows, fencing, hardware, cabinetry, furniture, etc. 

Ottosson Linseed Oil Paint is 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 and deterioration. Appropriate for historic, Landmark status properties, as well as modern architecture and new construction. It is safe to use, safe to live with, and safe for the environment
