    Conté à Paris Pastel Pencils

    The exceptional diameter of the Conté à Paris pastel pencil (5 mm) lead gives genuine freedom of creation and has an unrivalled feel. 

    The pastel is perfect pencil companion to soft pastel because it’s lead is slightly harder with less pigment.

     

    It is preferable to Conté soft pastels and crayons when details is required for small and medium sized formats.

     

    In contrast with soft pastels, pastel pencil should not be added in successive layers of colours, but used as pure colours laid out in patchwork fashion side by side (so as not to dull the shades).

    Conte Crayons/Chalks (hard pastels)

    Conte Crayons/Chalks (hard pastels)

    Invented in France in 1795 by Nicolas-Jacques Conté especially for drawing and sketching,

    Conté Crayons are made from a blend of natural pigments, kaolin clay, and graphite.

    They are hard chalks, harder than a soft pastel. They are not crayons as we know them i.e. wax crayons. The French call hard chalks ‘crayons’.

     

    The rich, vivid colors of Conté Crayons mix together nicely, and a range of effects can be consistently produced. They are well suited for use on newsprint, textured paper or heavily grained surfaces.
