The rich, vivid shades of Conté Crayons mix together nicely, and a range of effects can be consistently produced. Their rich opacity makes them ideal for work on darker papers and their quality ensures the longevity of drawings. Conté crayons are waxier and much firmer than soft pastels, so they produce little dust and are easy to control.
Sharpen Conté Crayons to a chisel tip with a sanding pad for detailed work or drag them flat on their sides for various shading techniques on large areas. Sticks are 6cm long × 0.5 square.
Box contains black, white, bistre, sanguine.
