Discover the new improved formulation of Conté à Paris pastel pencils, they are soft to apply. With artist’s grade pigments used they give brighter, stronger, cleaner colours and the creamy texture allows exceptional flow of application to enable better expression, spontaneity, and versatility. Cased in a durable hard wood, Conté à Paris Pastels Pencils are easily sharpened to a point for fine detailed work but can be laid down heavily and create effective blocks of colour.
They are larger than most pastel pencils with a 5mm colour core that is exceptionally fine and smooth. It is suitable for all coloured papers or colouring in books, however the intense opaqueness is more evident when used on darker coloured paper. It is the perfect pencil companion to Soft Pastels because its lead is slightly harder, with less pigment, when finer detail is needed.
