Tested by generations and climatic conditions
Linseed oil paint has been used in Finland since the 18th century. Initially only prestigious buildings such as churches and mansions were painted with linseed oil paint and it wasn’t until later that its use spread onto townhouses and eventually farmhouses. In addition to exteriors, linseed oil paint has been used for interior walls, furniture, doors, windows and floor boards.
