Osmo Country Colour is a very versatile product throughout the garden and home. Perfect for a wide range of projects including wooden sidings and claddings, trim, clapboards (shutters), fences, shakes, shingles, pergolas, summer houses, log cabins, boat houses, garden furniture, sheds and more.

Interior uses include wooden surfaces, stone and brick walls (not plaster) where a satin-matt, intensely coloured but micro-porous finish is desired.

You'll find plenty of useful guidance about picking the best wood stain colour in our blog. Happy hunting!

RAL colour matching:Please supply the specific shade reference number using this RAL chart in "Special Instructions" at checkout, allowing a minimum of 10 working days. Osmo RAL matched colours are made to order and are Non-refundable.

  1. Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free.
  2. Old paints and varnishes must be fully removed with a suitable Paint or Varnish Remover
  3. Existing micro-porous finishes such as oils and stains need only be cleaned or lightly sanded before application.
  4. If additional protection against blue stain, rot and insects is desired, pre-treat the wood if possible on all sides with Osmo WR Base Coat (4001).

Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility. Be aware that rough sawn timber is more absorbent, meaning coverage per litre will be greatly reduced. Osmo Country Colour is ready to use straight from the tin, no thinning required. Stir well before and periodically when in use.

  1. Apply thinly and evenly along the wood grain.
  2. For exterior wood apply first coat on all sides before installation for maximum protection.
  3. Allow to dry inline with Product Information Sheet.
  4. After drying, apply a second coat, also thinly.
  5. When renovating, one coat applied to clean, dry surface is usually sufficient.

Good coverage by Pam Bullivant

Wanted to 'stain' a wood veneer bath panel. Appreciated the opportunity to purchase a couple of samples to see the effect and also to match bathroom furniture. Plenty in sachet to do this. Subsequently bought small tin from wood finishes direct. Was sorry to hear that this size is being phased out. I do hope not as the product is not cheap and we used hardly any.

Good to be able to purchase 3 colour samples to compare, match bathroom furniture and see how well they covered a wood veneer bath panel. Enough in sachet to do that. Subsequently bought pebble grey which had a slight beige tint to it.

Great product, easy to use by Dr Janet R. Jackson

This gave a lovely finish to my shed. It brought out the grain of the wood and is a much nicer colour than it was before. It was easy to use and I am delighted with the end result. I would definitely use it again and recommend it for use on sheds, etc.

Brilliant Product by Lesley Blair

It may seem a bit more expensive than others, although much cheaper at Wood Finishes Direct but it is well worth the extra. It is everything it claims to be and more, I would have no hesitation in recommending it to all, especially at the price Wood Finishes Direct retail it at.
