A very durable silk gloss, linseed oil-based, solvent free finish. This system has to go on to bare wood to be most effective. Apply Holkham Raw Linseed oil first as a primer (leave this step out on oil rich hardwoods like Iroko). Three topcoats will give up to 15 years protection with occasional top-ups of raw linseed oil or Holkham Maintenance Oil. A minimum of 24 hours is required between coats as the paint is solvent free and dries through oxidisation only. Holkham paint can also be used on bare metal, for ferrous (prone to rust) metals 1 coat of Holkham Iron Primer is recommended followed by 2-3 coats of Holkham Linseed Paint.
It is advised that you should not consider using Holkham paints on exterior wood in cold conditions, or in the likely event of rain. As the paint is solvent free, it will take a very long time to dry in cold temperatures.
