Ottosson Swedish Linseed Oil Paints – Summer Special

Ottosson Swedish Linseed Oil Paints – Summer Special
Posted in: Blog

Ottosson Swedish Linseed Oil Paints are well established as a natural and historic painting system and offer an environmentally conscious alternative to water- or solvent-based paints. The linseed oil paints are characterised by their extraordinary coverage, very good ageing properties and short drying times.
Pure linseed oil paint is ideally suited for application indoors and outdoors on almost any surface, e. g. wood, plaster and metal.

Manufactured traditionally, Ottosson Linseed Oil Paints offer a genuine historical reference and are now widely accepted in heritage conservation and restoration.

The Swedish manufacturer Ottosson Färgmakeri has been producing high-quality paints exclusively from linseed oil and traditional pigments since 1989. Starting with the production of own artists' colours according to old recipes, the company has developed into the largest manufacturer of pure linseed oil paints, which is represented internationally.

“Linseed oil paint is a sustainable product based on natural linseed oil, but our quest to be environmentally friendly does not stop here. From packaging materials and production to transport and more, Ottosson’s always tries to find solutions with a minimal impact on the environment. Our philosophy is to continue to drive development to reduce the impact on our beautiful natural environment. We replace the plastic packaging that we used previously for linseed oil and other products with metal and glass packaging step by step. These materials are recycled to a greater extent.“*

With this in mind, Deffner & Johann has been ensured that transport is optimised and resources are used in an environmentally conscious way. This means that we always have a solid stock level and products can be delivered reliably within 24 hours.
