Raw Linseed Oil
Raw linseed oil is exactly that! It’s 100% natural, cold-pressed, matured linseed oil from Sweden. It’s a great multipurpose potion for any painter and decorator or keen DIYer to keep in their cupboard. Used for oiling interior wood, it offers superior preservative qualities. It’s also a fundamental tool for decorating with linseed paint as the oil is used to thin the paint down, allowing for application of thin coats which is essential. We recommend using raw linseed oil when painting very dry, porous wood.
Boiled Linseed Oil
Boiled linseed oil has a faster drying time than raw linseed oil, making it a very useful tool when treating indoor wood surfaces. Boiled linseed oil offers a rich, mellow patina to stripped or bare wood. Just like raw linseed oil, boiled linseed oil can also be used for diluting linseed paint.
Made from extracts of organic distilled resin from Arentinian pine trees, balsam turpentine is 100% natural. If you’re working with hard woods, we recommend using balsam turpentine to dilute linseed paint over raw or boiled linseed oil. What’s more, it’s an essential tool for cleaning painting equipment, which is why every painter, decorator or DIYer should have a small bottle in stock.
