Learn About Linseed Oil Paint

Visit our Video Library: See more tips, techniques, and view Allback Linseed products in action!

The binding agent in Allbäck linseed oil paint is "boiled" (oxidized) linseed oil from Skåne, the southernmost province of Sweden. It is very low emitting and completely free from harmful additives and solvents. The pigments used in the white paint are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Other shades are made from natural metal oxides and earth colors. All color shades can be blended with one another to create an infinite array of colors.

This displays the amazing penetration power of the Allback Linseed Oil Paint. Paint will penetrate the wood surface and give it great resistance to water and subsequently rot.

Linseed oil paint can be used both outdoors and indoors, on timbers and metal. It ages visibly, fading naturally over time. After some time, the paint will become chalky as the pigment begins to be released. Brushing the surface and applying a coat of Maintenance Linseed Oil Wax or Raw Linseed Oil as a last coat helps the surface regain it's former luster and function, simply and inexpensively.

Linseed Oil Paint can also be mixed to an emulsion and applied to most types of plaster, brick or stone walls (internally or externally) or cement floors, but not on lime plaster. For any wooden surfaces use undiluted Linseed Oil Paint. Emulsion should not be used on any woodwork. Please check and read instruction sheet thoroughly before undertaking.

"Sea Mist" (on the walls) and "White" on the ceiling used as an emulsion in the Old Kitchen, Holkham Hall 2001. Microscopic analysis of the paint layers showed that the first color applied on the wall in the 1750's was a "gray-oil" paint.
  • Soft natural finish.
  • Can be stored for several years.
  • Covers about 135-180 square feet per liter, depending on surface (for emulsion coverage see "Use as an Emulsion" section of instruction sheet). We suggest you base your calculations on 20 sq m per liter. All colors available in both 4 oz sample jars and 1.05 quart cans. White is also available in 3/4 Gallon cans.

What is Linus

The Linus interior paint "By Allback Paint" is a flat Linseed Oil Paint exclusively for interior applications. This paint is completely solvent free and free from any chemicals for safe indoor air quality. The paint can be applied by rolling or with a brush on any interior surface like wood, stucco, wallpaper, plaster, old painted surfaces, paneling, fireplaces, etc. This paint is ideal wall paint for stenciling. You can apply onto a stencil the Allback Exterior/Interior paint on top of the Linus interior paint and achieve sharp lines without any bleeding. The Exterior Alback paint will not bleed into the Linus paint at all. The Linus paint is very durable and the best of all, it is washable.

  • The paint contains linseed oil, water, filling agent, pigment and drying agent
  • The paint is available in six shades that are mutually mixable. (White , Gray , Vanilla , Green , Oat , Yellow Ochre)
  • The paint is packed in 1 liter cans
  • It covers approximately 22 - 160 square feet / 1.05 liter depending on the surface and desired structure. The structure of the paint can be varied through the choice of brush/ roller. The paints can be diluted with 5% water. You can use up to 10% boiled linseed oil if you desire a more glossy surface.
  • The paint will have an even, matte surface without shiny patches on all surfaces. The paint's penetration ability has been minimized.
  • The paint dries as water evaporates and the linseed oil oxidizes. The drying time is about 24 hours depending on the thickness of the paint, ventilation, temperature etc. When the paints are drying there may be a slight smell of linseed oil. There is a lot of oil and water that has to oxidize and evaporate. Make sure you have good ventilation!

Why is Allback Linseed Oil Paint Superior?

Allback uses a unique but not new technique to clean and then sterilize the linseed oil in Allback paint.

In the jar is cold, pressed linseed oil directly from the press. As you can see the linseed oil contains a white substance. This is protein that will cause a variety of problems from mildew and rot. Most if not all paint manufacturers leave protein in the oil and add massive amounts of chemicals in order to keep the paint from rotting. In the bottle you see cleaned and sterilized linseed oil. What oil would you prefer to have in your paint?
