Application

To prepare the substrate for painting, first lightly abrade the surface to produce a key. Remove all dust thoroughly, then clean and degrease the surface ensuring it is free from any dirt loose particles or contamination.

Traditionally, painters would apply a fine coat of pure boiled linseed oil first to increase the life span of the paint. This is an optional priming coat to increase adhesion. Priming coats of Boiled Linseed Oil should be applied thinly.

Apply the Linseed Oil Paint to the prepared surface using a brush or medium pile roller allowing 24 hour between coats. Once applied, the paint will take around 3-7 day to fully cure depending on the weather.

Take care with application materials and soiled rags as they may self-ignite without warning. Dispose of safely by lying flat and allowing to dry or clean with warm soapy water to avoid fire risks.
