I'm confused now. So using this paint it'll only last 5-10 years ? I thought it was good for a decade or so before just needing a coat of linseed oil ?Jacob":k7aqzfii said:Yep it is thin. If you put it on too thick it won't go off - it skins over and you have to sand off the soft bits. Quite easy to do though so it's nothing to worry about, but save the bother (and the paint) by brushing it out as thin as possible.
Thin coats means you can just keep topping up every few years indefinitely. No burning back or scraping. I've taken old joinery out which still has all it's paint still intact -20 layers or more from new 100 years ago or more.
The worst thing you can do to a bit of old joinery is to burn off the old paint and replace with new. You would instantly shorten its life to 5 to 10 years.
