Product Description

Palatine Professional log cabin paint is a protective, decorative top coat for exterior use on wood or previously prepared painted surfaces. A stylish and modern alternative to a wood stain effect, this paint will transform log cabins, timber lodges and outdoor buildings, with a range of colours available.

With high opacity, Palatine Professional log cabin paint provides a superb finish which is also touch dry in 3 hours. Because of its oil content, it offers a flexible, protective coating to external timber in a quick drying satin finish.

The many colour options allow for coordination with different surfaces which makes it a popular exterior wood paint for log cabins, timber lodges, chalets and summerhouses.  Not sure if satin is the finish for you? The British Coatings Federation provides some relevant information.

We recommend applying a clear wood preserver prior to application of this paint. This will aid in the preventing the paint from splitting or cracking once applied.

Log Cabin Paint Highlights:

  • Based on modified alkyd resin, (lead free) containing organic and inorganic pigments
  • Provides a durable long term protection, suitable for wood
  • Touch dry in 3 hours, providing excellent wet edge and flow out
  • Also available in Anthracite Grey RAL 7016
  • We can colour match to RAL Classic and BS 381C /Bs 4800 codes

If a matt finish is what you’re after, then Palatine Professional Shed and Fence Paint is also an excellent choice.

Proper surface preparation is essential for the success of any protective coating system. Before you begin ensure the area is free from any dust, oil, grease, old coatings and surface contaminants.

The preparation of steelwork prior to painting generally falls into two main areas; that of degreasing and the removal of rust and scale.
All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material, dust, grease and millscale, etc.
Prime bare surfaces with Palatine Anti-Corrosive Metal Primer or Palatine All Purpose Primer / Undercoat in accordance with our recommendations
For non-ferrous metals use Palatine Fast Dry etching primer.
Rub down previously gloss painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly.


Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C), dry conditions.

Mix thoroughly for approximately 2 minutes using a drill stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is also ideal.
Apply an even coat using a brush, short to medium pile roller on smooth surfaces and a long pile roller on textured surfaces
For spray application by either airless or conventional spray a dilution ration of no more than 10% is recommended with Palatine White Spirit by volume applying thin coats allowing each one to dry before applying subsequent coats.
Once dried, a second coat can be applied at full strength. This will prolong the life and performance of the coating.

Thinning and Cleaning: Use Palatine White Spirit.

If using more than one batch of the same colour, intermix before use

    First time have used this paint, so used it on a pine wooden box before I attempted the big log cabin. The product went on really easy and came out looking like a very professional job. As long as you adhere to the instructions you should have no trouble at all. Would recommend. Watch this space when the log cabin gets its 2 coats of paint, can’t wait.

    Thank you.
    The paint was excellent and I am more than happy with the results.

  3. Colin Clegg (verified owner)

    Fantastic paint. Ideal for the job of repainting the summerhouse. I bought 5 litres of anthracite grey to cover green. It was very easy to use and covered the old colour really well, but i will give it a second coat.
    Great service and a quality product.
