oil painted skirting
Explanation:

sokl - plinth, skirting
masna boja - duco, oil paint
[Vukičević B, Građevinski rečnik en-sr/sr-en]


„Beginning the oil paint skirting… not to know that we would have to do it all over again.. the day before this I had gone to town to choose the colour..then after 20 minutes of umming and ahhhing I finally decided on turquoise, then the power went out.. so they couldn’t mix the paint..that was the end of work that day.“
( http://www.proz.com/kudoz/serbo_croat_to_english/constructio... )


„I decided to create the inside with whitewashed walls and an oil painted skirting. The floor was painted dark grey. All inside and outside areas received a patina with powder colours by ASOA.“
( http://www.012-express.com/pdf_e/012-06_engl_final.pdf )


Te „masne boje“ su zapravo alkidne boje (na bazi alkidnih smola i biljnog ulja), pa bi moglo i „alkyd paint“:

„Alkyd paint is probably the most well known type of oil paint available on the market. The word alkyd actually refers to the synthetic resin used as a binder in the paint. This would be the oil in the paint, most commonly vegetable oil. Alkyd paints also come in a wide variety of finishes making it ideal for multiple different projects.“

disagree  Daryo: ovde nije u pitanju prava sokla (= plinth, skirting) nego donji deo zida (do visine od 1 metra) obojen otpornijim bojom od ostatka zida// "oil paint skirting" jesto pravi prevod, ali "oil painted" je nešto sasvim sasvin drugo.

  -> pogrešan je prvi link - pogledajte ispravku gore; na slikama se može videti da je „oil paint skirting” baš „donji deo zida obojen otpornijom bojom od ostatka zida”

agree  Mira Stepanovic: Možda bi "oil-based paint skirting" bilo preciznije: https://www.masters.com.au/DIYProjectsIdeas/Painting/Painttr... two basic types of paint - water-based and oil-based

agree  Natasa Djurovic: Agree oil-based...
