When is Linseed Paint not Linseed Paint ?
We are aware that "Linseed Oil Emulsion" is being produced by petrochemical paint companies in response to the emerging popularity of pure Linseed Oil Paint. We want to make sure you are not being conned into using an inferior product that won't give you the results you want.
Emulsions contain water, emulsifiers, drying agents as well as oil, and even if that oil base is Linseed Oil, mixing it with these other ingredients will not give you the same results as pure linseed oil paint, and you will see cracking and flaking in the same way you would if you had used other petrochemical paints.
So-called "Linseed Oil Emulsions" are cheaper, inferior products that will not perform as you would expect.
