Hey, I'm looking for open source paint 🎨

No, not software, actual paint πŸ˜‚

I specifically want to know about silicate paints (for internal and external masonry) and linseed oil paints (for external woods) 🏚️

I'm finding it quite hard to find rigorously tested or referenced recipes πŸ”–

@douginamug a better library or the next art school’s library will have something for you.

@douginamug "Shellac, Linseed Oil & Paint" by Stephen Shepherd is pretty good. Focuses on furniture, but has some discussion on outdoors finishes.
