Hello everyone!
 Here in Scandinavia there is a real resurgence of traditional paint finishes.
 Oldest is 'slamf√§rg' in swedish. Red oxide earth pigment boiled with water, vitriol, linseed oil, and oats,  I believe. Can be purchased readymade, but it is popular for folk to make their own. https://youtu.be/ksa_lHcEutU
  Linseed oil paint is the other. I love that stuff. Interior and exterior. https://youtu.be/zFeq61pg_3o
The most popular manufacturer over here is ottossons. They have a great instructional YouTube channel,  also in English.
Hope this helps.
