Paint and The Environment. Organic linseed
oil paint is made from cold pressed purified
linseed oil, earth pigment, and is the only real environmentally
safe paint on the market today.
- There is never any paint to dispose of. Any left over paint
can be mixed into one can and used as a base coat in your next
project. You will never have to bring paint to any recycling center.
- Linseed oil paint is not sensitive
to freezing or very hot weather. You can apply the linseed oil
paint or just the oil in direct sunlight.
- Organic linseed oil actually gets better over time. In old time
painter manuals you could find recommendations for the painters
to store the cold pressed linseed oil for 2 years before it was
made into paint. Linseed oil is basically like fine wine, it gets
better over time.
- Organic linseed oil paint covers
twice the surface area compared to any acrylic/petrochemical paints
you find in a paint store because it does not contain any form
of solvent. It is 100% dry weight.
We receive many questions why you can not purchase organic linseed
oil paint in a regular paint store. The answer is simple. Paint
stores require a very high margin to handle their products. We market
our organic linseed oil paint directly online to save you an amazing
amount of money in more than one way:
- Organic linseed oil paint will
provide you with an exponential savings over time because it does
not crack, peel, fade and it will never trap moisture that will
cause the wood to rot.
- Organic linseed oil paint is
very easy to maintain by simply applying the organic boiled linseed
oil onto the dry and aged surface every 5-10 years. Just like
applying lotion on your dry skin. If the organic linseed oil paint
is left untouched for 20-25 years you will see the pigment starting
to fall off. By brushing the loose pigment off you can simply
apply a new coat of the organic linseed oil paint and you are
ready to go another generation or two.
You can understand why the chemical industry, doesn't want organic
linseed oil paint available in stores because it challenges the
petroleum paint products... but why should a home owner accept paint
that will fail within 5 or even 10 years and too often much shorter?
The only paint that really works is organic linseed oil paint. Organic
linseed oil paint has been used for hundreds of years without
any negative environmental impact. Now is the time to go GREEN.
