Linseed oil paint is made using linseed oil, and linseed oil is made from linseed, and linseed is grown from flax plants, like those in this flax field. This is why linseed oil paint is sustainable and renewable and non-toxic. And because it is plant based it’s molecular structure is such that it allows this paint to spread much further and penetrate into the surface it’s painted on. Thus linseed oil paints provides far better protection against water damage than what conventional paints can ever do.
