Create a Colourful Statement with OSMO UK Country Colour

With the summer months upon us and recent social distancing rules keeping people at home, it’s the perfect opportunity to get into the garden to make sure exterior spaces are looking and functioning at their best.

•  CHALLENGE – Improve discoloured wood surfaces ahead of summer
•  SOLUTION – Apply Osmo UK Country Colour to rejuvenate wood and create a colourful statement

By opting for a high-quality wood finish such as Osmo UK Country Colour, external surfaces can be updated with a splash of colour to bring the garden to life.

Country Colour is an opaque, satin wood finish that is suitable for use on fencing, cladding, garden furniture and sheds. Designed especially for use on exterior wood, Country Colour is UV resistant, protecting the wood from harmful UV rays that cause discolouration. The finish is ideal for renewing previously stained, weathered or discoloured wood surfaces. Its deep rich colour hides the grain and colour of the wood but ensures that the natural feel and texture is maintained. The unique microporous formula is created with natural vegetable oils, this allows the wood to breathe, resulting in a professional finish that will not crack, flake, peel or blister.

Prior to application, wipe down the surface with a damp cloth to remove any dust or debris. To apply the product, Osmo UK suggest using a flat brush or roller – this allows for even distribution. Start by applying a thin layer of the Country Colour to the chosen surface. For optimal results, two coats are recommended with a drying time of 8-10 hours.

In addition to nineteen standard colour options, Country Colour can also be matched to an existing sample or shade. This bespoke element, allows for endless design possibilities as homeowners can match the finish to their existing décor.
