Potter's pink was invented by an unknown Staffordshire potter in about 1780. Winsor & Newton introduced it as a watercolor paint in the 19th century under the name "pinkcolor." The Colour Index lists a chrome aluminum stannate pigment as Pigment Red 233 (77301). This pigment is manufactured by BASF (Germany) under the tradename Sicocer F Pink.

Source
Rublev potter's pink is made according to the original recipe for the ceramic pigment.

Oil Absorption and Grinding
Potter's pink absorbs a medium amount of oil (- g oil per 100 g of pigment).

Toxicity
Potter's pink is not considered to be toxic, however, care should be used in handling the dry powder pigment to avoid breathing the dust.
