It describes in detail the unique role linseed paint plays in the preservation of historic buildings, including: What linseed paint is, what the ingredients are and how it is made, the benefits of linseed paint and how it functions on a molecular level, how linseed paint can play a pivotal role in reducing microplastics and making the building and restoration industries more sustainable and detailed step-by-step instructions for applying linseed paint to a variety of surfaces
