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.

Superb coverage Never re-paint the shed again! by Marcus Lonsdale

1 coat of a 3m x 3m apex shed in one tin. This is quality and worth the money.

Nice finish by Jessica Abrams

Thicker than expected and opaque more than expected so I ended up using a cloth to rub into the grain. Nice finish on raw pine.

A cut above! by Mrs Angela Smith

Brilliant product, love the way it sinks into the wood so no peeling paint scenario happening in the future. Goes such a long way, very highly pigmented, I managed to paint 2 coats on a 2.5m x 3.5m log cabin with a single 2.5l pot! Only negative is that it's not the easiest to clean up afterwards - please wear scruffy clothes - but it looks exactly like paint on the cabin and I'm delighted with the result.

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 coverage by Pam Bullivant

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.
