Can I use Earthborn Eggshell externally?
In line with our eco credentials, Earthborn Eggshell is water-based and formulated without oils or acrylics, making it perfect for interior woodwork but less suitable for external applications.
This is because changes in weather conditions and outside temperature can cause exterior wood surfaces to expand and contract considerably, causing strains to the paintwork and leading to possible flaking or cracking.
However if you are keen to use our oil-free Eggshell paint outside, we would suggest thoroughly preparing surface by sanding well, and in between dried coats.
