Product description

Potter's pink is a lightfast, semitransparent, moderately staining, dark valued, moderately subdued red pigment. Historically used since the 18th century as a watercolor pigment, under the name "pinkcolor."

Rublev Colours Aqueous Dispersions are pigments dispersed in water ready to be mixed with water-based mediums. These dispersions are especially made for use with traditional painting mediums, such as egg tempera, casein tempera, fresco, watercolors and distemper (glue tempera). They are also ideally suited for use with gesso to make toned grounds for drawing and painting. Pigment dispersions from Rublev Colours contain only naturally-derived ingredients, in addition to pigment and water, making them ideally suited for traditional mediums. Unlike other pigment dispersions that are typically made for acrylic medium, Rublev Colours Aqueous Dispersions do not contain coalescent solvents, artificial dispersing resins and other additives that interfere with natural mediums. Aqueous Dispersions make preparing traditional mediums easy; you do not have to hassle with powders, grinding pigments in medium and calculating binder ratios to make water-based paint. They make adding the right amount of paint binder, such as egg yolk, a no brainer because the right amount of water is already contained in the dispersion, simply add egg yolk.

Pigment Names
English: Potter's pink
English: pinkcolor, tin pink

Origin and History
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.

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

Permanence and Compatibility
Although unrated by ASTM International, the composition and prior use of potter's pink plausibly puts it in the excellent lightfastness category (I). It is compatible with all pigments and in all vehicles.

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

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.
