Natural paint based on food flour, linseed oil and ocher
Ochre is a natural, earth-based pigment. It comes in beautiful, warm colors due to its high content of iron compounds.
It can be used to prepare the homemade paint based on flour and linseed oil, which can be used to impregnate wooden surfaces, both indoors and outdoors. It is durable, easy to prepare and it assures a great, lond-lasting protection for wood (it is UV resistant).
I had the opportunity to test the properties of this paint in Portugal. The photos below show my experiments.
