On this old project, it’s time for maintenance
after 20 years.
This location is near the salty ocean and receives severe
beating from the weather. This is a great example of how
long lasting the organic linseed
oil paint is. Any other paint would only last a few
years in this situation plus you would have had a rotten
window sash on top of it.
If you do not maintain with any of the purified linseed
oil every 5-10 years, you will eventually notice that the
pigment will start to fall off after about 20 years. Hans
Allback is touching up the areas that lost the pigment.
