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 cladding, 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 microporous 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.

  • Old paints and varnishes must be fully removed with a suitable paint or varnish remover
  • Existing micro-porous finishes such as oils and stains need only be cleaned or lightly sanded prior to application of Osmo Country Colours
  • Fill any holes or gaps in the wood surface with a suitable wood filler
  • To revive wood that has greyed in the sun, use Osmo Wood Reviver Gel (6609)
  • 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 with an Osmo Soft Tip Brush or Osmo Premium Microfibre Roller
  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.

Lovely green and easy to apply by Maureen Mann

Not cheap,but you get what you pay for.Covers well and will last longer than cheaper fence paint and would recommend wood finishes direct for their prompt service.

A great product by PATRICIA JUDSON

After buying new prefinished internal doors that were supposed to be a light grey finish but when fitted looked walnut colour I bought this product and after 3 coats of painting on and lightly removing with a lint free cloth I now have the coIour I was looking for, the doors look fabulous.

Osmo Wood Finish by Terence Coker

Bought just a sample, but I must say rather small in plastic, but did the job I wanted, good quality and colour match. This was to cover a small area left when I recently had new kitchen cupboard doors, the colour was very similar and covered the small area, so worth the money. Would recommend.

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.
