Traditional paints

Postby watkins » Sun Apr 12, 2009 7:51 pm

Dear Woodworkesr,

Has anyone used linseed oil based paints on weather-exposed wood?

It seems to be a better, and longer lasting option than solvent based paints.

I ask because I'm thinking of stripping off the existing paint on my window frames and re-painting using a linseed oil based paint.

This article may be of interest:

Interestingly, traditional paints are sold in RAL colours
