Description

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

8th March 2018 Reviewed by Isabelle Haythorne These hard pastels are brilliant for sketching. They do not smudge so are great to use when you're drawing from life. I use them at the first stage of my portrait drawings, marking out patches of shadow and light in the flesh tones before I then start adding other colours in soft pastel.

26th July 2017 Reviewed by Vivienne Avery I bought these as a way of trying out Conte crayons, to compare them with the pastels I currently use. This is the cheapest way I know of trying a different product, so is a good idea as a budget try of an expensive product.
