About pigmented linseed oil:

Last year we visited the factory producing this beautiful product in Denmark. The factory produces linseed oil paint according to an ancient tradition of craftsmanship. In Denmark linseed oil paint was used by wealthy people from about 1860 until the war in 1940. Since then, this picturesque treating has been forgotten because after the war new materials were introduced. In the factory we met Thor, the passionate owner of the factory who also likes to raise awareness of the many benefits this natural product has to offer. Linseed oil paint consist of coloured pigments mixed with linseed oil only, which makes it a very pure material. The linseed oil paste is extracted by a roller so that the colour eventually penetrates and treats the wood. The results are stunning, and retain extremely well!
