Conte a Paris Carres Crayons are slightly harder than normal soft, chalk pastels, allowing more tight and crisp lines. They have excellent lightfastness and purity of colour due to the high pigment load in the crayons. The crayons are made using natural pigments, clay and a binder. They are then baked after being extruded and dried.
A favourite among professional artists and students, this chalk crayon offers a wide variety of techniques for pastel work, sketching and drawing. The square shape of the crayon allows you to create wide lines and cover large areas when the crayon is used on its side and fine point lines when used at its tip. You can vary the density of your line simply by varying the pressure.
The Conte a Paris Carres are the perfect companion to pastel pencils and can add real depth to a sketch when used together. We recommend using pastel paper, Pastelmat paper or a cartridge paper which has a 'tooth' to it. As soft pastels are prone to smudging, you will need to fix your work with a spray fixative.
