Nicolas-Jacques Conté invented Conte Crayons in France in 1795 especially for drawing and sketching. They are made from a blend of natural pigments, kaolin clay, and graphite. Picasso, Delacroix, and Degas have all used Conte Crayons, testament to their superb quality and unique features.
A number of effects can be consistently produced and the vivid, rich colours mix well together. They are ideally suited for use on toned paper, bristol, newsprint, and heavily grained surfaces. Their superior quality ensures the longevity of your drawings. Conté Crayons are waxier and much firmer than soft pastels, so they produce little dust and are easy to control. Their rich opacity makes them ideally suited for work on darker papers.
Sharpen them 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. The unique shape allows the sticks to be broken for easier use. Sticks are 2½" long × ¼" square (63 mm × 6 mm).
