Does any one on this site have information on linseed oil paints? I’m trying to finish all my joinery in natural finishes I can cope with shellac and have landed in a really nice marine grade clear coat that’s not loaded with solvents but in recent years since being diagnosed with Rinitus and having had problems with paint finishes and contact dermatitis I’ve decided to stop using solvent laden paints as they make the lining of my nose burn.
Had a customer refuse the linseed paint even though it’s the best on the market opting for a dulux paint that is full of plastic polymers and solvents by the looks of things now this is where the problem occurs I’ve got to aleast prime the rebates on these doors and I’m not keen to use this stuff and also really not keen on the effect plastic based paints have on timber as they do not breathe panels often crack once it’s applied.
The customers only problem with the linseed paints is they don’t dry straight off or so the guys at dulux have told him. Hence I seek knowledge
Dreaming of a sawmill, feels like a museum. Thanks for looking Adam.
