The exceptional diameter of the Conté Crayon Pastel Pencil (5 mm.) lead gives genuine freedom of creation and with an unrivaled feel. The pastel is perfect pencil companion to soft pastel because its lead is slightly harder with less pigment.
Great for details required in small and medium sized formats. In contrast with soft pastels, pastel pencils should not be added in successive layers of colors, but used as pure colors laid out in patchwork fashion side by side (so as not to dull the shades).
