Osmo Country Colour is a natural wood oil that penetrates and nourishes, providing long term protection for external wood.

Osmo Country Colour is a Wood Paint designed for use on exterior woods. Based on natural vegetable oils, Osmo Country Colour penetrates deeply into the wood keeping it elasticated and healthy.

Osmo Country Colour is an opaque, satin wood finish and is great for all exterior uses due to its extreme durability. The deep rich colours of Osmo Country Colour will hide any natural colours and grain, especially when it comes to wood, but it will still provide a natural feel and the original texture. This paint is created from natural vegetable oils, this allows the wood to breath and now crack, blister or peel.

This versatile, paint-like opaque finish is brilliant for use throughout the garden and home, it's great for a range of projects such as wooden sidings, cladding, trim, cupboards, shutters, fences, shakes, pergolas, shingles, summer houses, sheds, log cabins, boat houses, garden furniture and much more. Although Osmo Country Colour is labelled as an exterior product, it can equally be used indoors too, especially on interior wood, Osmo Country Colour will provide a good effect. The product does contain a lot of solvent which means it has a strong smell, it's also recommended that interior items should be painted and left to dry outside.
