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.

Excellent coverage by Marion Tulla

Went a long way.

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.

Brilliant waterproof coverage by Dawn Moore

Easy to paint on new fence. Fully waterproof offering the best protection to the wood. I would have given 5 stars except I needed twice as much as indicated. Excellent product.

Good quality paint covers very well and goes a long way by Alastair Gemmell

We are very pleased with the colour and how well it covers over two coats of Osmo base coat clear. I seems to have a glossy look after the second coat is applied.but it is early days as we are still finishing it. The service and quality of the paint and brushes and filler and sealers also supplied are excellent.

Great stain very dense colour by Alan Kendall

I love the Osmo range and now rarely use paint on outside woodwork, I have mahogany windows, and the Country Colour helps blend the different shades of wood, and then I finish with the UV protection oil which is so easy to apply that it only takes minutes to do a window and keep it looking like new. I am very happy to recommend Osmo.
