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), 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.

Easy to apply by Ben Reinhardt

ordered two 125 ml tins and still had 1/2 tin left due to product being economical to use

Fantastic coverage, beautiful colour by Martin Pugh

2.5 litres to give two coats to exterior smooth planed cladding and one coat to inside of exterior cladding of 4mtr x 3 mtr summerhouse ? Never !! It has though with enough left over to do another 3mtr side. Easy to apply, brushed on and rubbed in with J cloths to still show wood grain which has given a beautiful finish. Excellent value for money. Have already reordered a white Country Colours to cover interior. Tip !! Use " Nitrile " gloves and clean any splashes from your skin with " Everbuild Wonder Wipes " they work a treat.

I used this on an old timber garage. Covered well, soaked in quickly and dried evenly. The garage has been transformed from an eyesore to an asset.

Bit of a curates egg by Michael Symes

I made the mistake of using it on sawn timber and the coverage was very poor due to difficulty in applying it thinly, only got about 7m2 per litre which makes it a very expensive finish. On smooth planed wood coverage was very much higher. Would use it again on planed timber but not on sawn.

Awesome paint by Jamie Summers

I am very happy with my purchase of Osmo country colour. It has completely transformed my shed, it now looks fantastic. The coverage you get from a can is very impressive. I ordered 2.5litres to paint an 8/12 shed, it was more than enough for two coats with at least half left. Delivery was quick and the can was well packaged, a good price for a great product. Very happy.

We have used this osmo for our stand at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and it looks absolutely stunning. This osmo is easy to apply with Mako Natural Bristle Woodcare Brush 80mm and looks so crisp once cured - highly recommend this product and Wood Finishes Direct for their skill and knowledge into this product.
