Iron sulphate is used for treating wood outdoors, as anti-mould agent in Swedish Paint and for tinting lime paint.
Iron sulphate gives wood a nice grey color/aged look and protects it against mould and rot.

For aging wood:
Mix 1 Kg iron sulphate power with 5L of water (600C) and apply with a brush. Final color appears after 2-3 months. Sun and humidity speed up the process. The qualty of wood also plays role in final outcome. Always make a test before. If the desired color has bee achieved the ageing process should be stopped by applying light tar-oil or turpentine linseed oil.
Tinting lime paint:
Tinting lime paint with a iron sulphate is actually a chemical process where synthetic ochre is produced. Iron sulphate settles, iron hydroxide and gypsum is formed. Gypsum remains in lime where it formes a substrate for the paint. Procedure: Mix 1 Kg Iron sulphate with 5 L of warm water (600C). Then add same amount of limewater. Paint as usual. The color will change over time.
