    Oricalcum

    Raw linseed oil

    £7.75

    Use for thinning of linseed oil paint.

    Oricalcum

    Boiled linseed oil

    £15.90

    Ideal for diluting linseed oil paint and treating wood.

    This is original cold-pressed, matured and boiled linseed oil from Sweden. It’s what linseed oil paint is made from, so it’s the perfect thinner.

    This linseed oil has faster drying times than raw linseed oil, however, so if you’re painting very dry, porous wood we’d recommend raw linseed oil instead.

    Boiled linseed oil can also be used for oiling and surface-treating indoor wood – giving a rich, mellow patina to stripped or bare wood.

    Available in 1L size.

    £26.00

    Protect your paint from leaking sap.

    If you’ve ever painted bare wood without using a knotting sealer, you may have seen a yellow stain appearing on your beautiful paintwork weeks, months or even years later – just above where the knots are. This is because knots continue to leak sap as time passes, and they will discolour your paintwork.

    By applying Shellac Knotting Primer to the knots in your wood before painting, you’ll seal them and prevent their sap from leaking.

    Available in 125ml and 1L sizes.

    Oakum is a rope made of flax fibers drenched in pine tar (or Stockholm tar) and makes for a terrific caulking method to seal joints or fill gaps in timber. These fibers are driven into the wedge-shaped seam between planks or in large holes. The caulking is then covered over with a putty. Originally this was used in the shipping industry to fill crack between timber boards.

  • Clarity Oil

    Clarity Oil

    £29.00

    v

    Oricalcum

    Clarity Oil

    £29.00

    The clearest, most transparent linseed oil you can buy for untreated light soft woods like (pitch) pine and red cedar.

    Natural linseed oil has a wonderful rich golden patina, but sometimes you may want your wood to have a colourless, transparent finish without that ‘yellowing’ effect. When used on dark woods, it could leave a white sheen on the surface, which will eventually wear off - however, if you don't like this, please don't use the oil.

    Clarity is made from raw linseed oil plus a small amount of white and grey pigment – and nothing else. When first applied to timber, it has the appearance of a whitish/grey wash, transforming over 4-8 weeks to a perfectly clear linseed oil finish.

    Clarity linseed oil is ideal for all kinds of wood and timber, and for both interior and exterior use.

    How to apply

    • Apply Clarity linseed oil using a brush and work it really well into your wood.
    • Apply in 2-3 very thin coats. Different types of timber may required more or fewer coats, depending on the absorption level.
    • Wipe off any excess oil after 1-2 hours.
    • To maintain the finish, re-oil whenever required.

    Coverage

    1 litre of Clarity linseed oil will cover approximately 20-23 m2 of timber.

    Size

    Clarity linseed oil is available 1-litre and 3-litre tins.
