Osmo Country Colour is a very versatile paint-like, opaque oil finish for use throughout the garden and home. Perfect for a wide range of projects including wooden sidings and claddings, trim, clapboards (shutters), smooth 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.

The wood surface to be coated with Osmo Country Colour must be clean, dry and frost-free.

  1. Old paints and varnishes must be fully removed with a suitable Paint or Varnish Remover
  2. Existing micro-porous finishes such as oils and stains need only be cleaned or lightly sanded prior to application of Osmo Country Colours
  3. 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, and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. 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 in line with Product Information sheet
  4. After drying, apply a second coat, also thinly


For general renovation, apply a fresh coat of Osmo Country Colour thinly and evenly in the direction of the wood grain as and when required.

Looks great by Kevin Stokoe

We used this on some cladding. We put on two coats and it looks great.

Excellent by Rory Miln

Very impressive setup. Competitive on price. Prompt service. Flexible - one of the items wasn't in stock so they sent the main part of the order straight away and the last item later when it came in. They even telephoned to let me know that the last item had arrived and had been despatched. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend - I will be buying from them every time I need this sort of product in the future.

Absolutely brilliant by A Charlton

Sort of halfway between a stain and a gloss paint. very good coverage and doesn't flake-actually soaks into the wood. very strong colours, really very very impressed. no odour to make you feel sick, gentle on the planet. doesn't seem to be a catch! really easy to touch up or recoat-no sanding required. Best I have used on any project over the last 25 years. Excellent.

Excellent, very good product by Mr C.R.Davison

I really like this product, I put a first coat on my 10x20 foot Garden Workshop and gave it a chance to be absorbed and dry.I thought at first it looked a bit thin but once I put another coat on it really looked brilliant and dried to a nice smooth finish. I had to use a small paint roller with this product as it was too thick for the Selecta sprayer and came out in a stream instead of a spray, but I would certainly recommend it.

Fantastic quality and coverage by Marion Tulla

Although the paint is nice and liquid, the pigment covers very well. I did two coats to change the colour of my shed, but I hardly needed the second coat. A 2.5L tin really goes further than other brands I have tried. Worth the money.

Vibrant colour; easy application by Jayne Owen

Not the cheapest paint but a reminder that you get what you pay for. This paint is great to apply and re-coat and the colour is really vibrant. Appears to give a very water proof finish and time will tell how it lasts but I feel confident in the quality of this product.
