Description

This Conté à Paris Carré Crayon x 12 Set of Assorted Traditional Colours makes a great introduction to these premium-quality crayons.

  • Conté Carré crayons are oblong sticks of kaolin and pigment, between the hardness of a soft pastel and the stickiness of an oil pastel.
  • Originally formulated in the late 18th century, they are excellent sketching tools, producing broad strokes with their edges or tips (which can be sharpened with a sanding pad) and areas of colour when used flat.

The Conté à Paris Carré Crayon x 12 Set of Assorted Traditional Colours contains a selection of black, grey, white, sanguine and sepia colours.

29th September 2020 Reviewed by Robyn Packham Plein air drawing and sketching.
Recommend to art students and artists with a particular passion for drawing, their awkward shape can be distracting but this is a minor thing compared to the quality and colour.
Chalks are great and weren't damaged, the lid is a bit flimsy.

12th June 2020 Reviewed by Charles Gallagher A good introduction to the varieties of sanguine In the range. A key on the box would help. Once you have used the pastels and decided which suits you best, the reference numbers have worn off. Initially sceptical of the worth of the grey but, on toned paper, I prefer it to white for trios crayons.
