Product Description

Uula Linseed Oil Paint is a traditional genuine oil paint made of boiled linseed oil (varnish) and colour pigments for wood surfaces. It is solvent-free, non-toxic and safe to use. Boiled linseed oil, used as oxidable binding agent, ensures that the paint coat develops a moisture permeating surface that ‘breaths’ with the wood. Moisture evaporates through the paint so that the paint does not peel and the wood underneath does not decay. The paint dries slowly, which ensures good absorption and adhesion

Colours available

See Uula Colour Chart, other colours can be made to order. Uula Linseed Oil Paint is tinted with colour pastes made from genuine colour pigments by weighing the amount of the paste on a precision scale.


Gloss that is characteristic of linseed oil paint, the texture will however fade over the years.
