Conté à Paris Sketching Crayons Assorted Set of 4 - Cardboard Box
Conté à Paris have been manufacturing some of the finest artists' materials available for more than 200 years. Many artists and grand masters have used Conté à Paris products because of the selection of pigments, lightfastness, and the exceptional brightness and purity of the colours. Conte Carre Crayons are baked with kaolin clay and are firmer than soft pastels, which means they work well on smooth paper as well as textured surfaces. Because they are firm and square they give accurate and energetic strokes when the edges of the sticks are used, you can shape Conté Crayons to a chisel tip with sandpaper for detailed work, drag them flat on their sides for various shading techniques or to cover large areas and the sticks can be broken for easier use. Sticks are 2œ" long × Œ" square (63 mm × 6 mm). The opacity of the carre crayons means they give good coverage on dark papers. These crayons are manufactured using natural pigments (iron oxides, carbon black, titanium dioxide). The Conté Colour carré crayons come in a range of vibrant colours.
