For more than two centuries, amateur and accomplished artists have found a great freedom of expression by using Conté Crayons.
Conté Crayons are unique for drawing and sketching and are an ideal pastel for creating paintings with brilliant contrasting shades that combine large flat areas and precise colored lines. Conté Crayons offer accurate and energetic strokes when the edges of the sticks are used, and artists may produce flat areas by using the flat of the crayon to create the values.
Waxier and firmer than soft pastels, Conté Crayons produce very little dust and are easy to control. Ideal for newsprint, bristol, toned paper and more.
Each crayon measures 2-1/2" long x 1/4" square.
Set of 12 Sketching Colors - This crayon set includes one each of Bistre Carre, Carre Black 2B (2), Carre Black B (2), Carre Black HB, Carre Gray, Carre Sanguine, Carre Sanguine Medicis, Carre Sanguine Watteau, Carre Sanguine XVIIIth Century and Carre White B.
