Falu's red cooking paint is the authentic and original Swedish red mullet paint that has been used from the 1500s to the present day. The pigment used in Falun colors comes from the Falun ore mine in Sweden. The natural pigment of the Falun mine makes the paint unique. From the rare copper-poor ore that has crumbled over the centuries, "red soil" is formed. In addition to copper, it contains more than 20 different minerals such as iron oxide, silicic acid and zinc oxide. The result is a warm red tint and a beautiful matte finish that reflects light beautifully. Other red mulch paints on the market are made from recycled iron and do not contain these important minerals, so they react to the light of the sun and change their shade over time and begin to bluish. Falu Rödfärg retains its beautiful shade year after year and thus a house painted with Falu Rödfärg does not need to be repainted as often as a house painted with ordinary red mullet.
It is easy to paint with cooking paint and only one painting session is needed.
Falu Rödfärg is available in two different shades of red. The lighter 1700's colour Falu Ljusröd and the darker Falu Röd and the black Falu Svart. All products contain the same color pigment from the Falun mine. Red pigments are burned at a lower temperature, and black at a higher one.
