Conte a Paris Carres Crayons were invented in France in 1795 by Nicolas-Jacques Conte, and have since been used by many of the world’s greatest artists, including Picasso, Delacroix and Degas.
These hard pastels are made from a blend of natural pigments, kaolin clay and graphite.
They’re perfect for drawing and sketching on both smooth and textured surfaces.
Their firm, waxy texture means that they produce little dust, and their opacity makes them perfect for using on a dark background.
Each stick meansures 63mm long, with a 6mm square cross-section, although you can easily break them into smaller pieces or shape them into a chisel tip using sandpaper
