One of the few colours made using organic pigments, genuine bone black (burnt animal bones) provides the deepest black possible. We found a version of this paint on the window frames of St Paul's Chapter House, where it was used to black out the windows during German air strikes in WW2.

Blackout looks stunning on the photos of the roof trim along with Whiteley.

Don't forget to order your Raw Linseed Oil and Balsam Turpentine if you need to thin the first coat.

If you would prefer a ready mixed primer, we would recommend Primer #3

    First time use of Brouns & Co external linseed oil paint.

    Published by Chris Gare on 29th Apr 2021

    I've used a competitive linseed oil paint for many years and I've never come across Broun before. As the 'other' company were out of stock, I thought I'd give it a try. I have to say that I'm very pleased with the product. The colour is a deeper black than the other Swedish product and the consistency is less runny reducing drips. It does seem more expensive for a 2.5L tin rather than a 3L tin for a similar price though. I'm a convert.

    I believe this paint will solve the flaking paint issue on south side of the fascia bourd

    Blackout exterior paint

    Published by Catherine Higgs on 21st Apr 2021

    Looks great on trellis and external wooden doors. Used it thinned down with raw linseed oil and so great coverage. The only downside is to be careful of the flammability of used rags/ paintbrushes whilst drying.

    This paint is expensive but it goes a long way and the finish is better than any other paint I have used.

    Has worked very well in our listed building. It also smells beautiful if slightly diluted with Balsamic Turpentine! Alan

    Fabulous product but different consistency from the last time we bought it from you. Much better this time. It didn't need so much thinning down with linseed so had a more Matt finish which we wanted
