Conte Carres Artist's Crayon Assorted Set

The Conté Carrés Assorted Set is available in boxes of 12, 24 and 48 Artist's Crayons. The colour selection is comprised of a range of colours from across the Conté range. Conté Carrés were developed in 1794 by Nicolas Jacques Conté from a mixture of clay and graphite, making it possible to create different grades of hardness to pencils. He worked on making colours “fixed and unchangeable” to meet the requirements of the painters of the day. Artists’ pencils and pastels were thus born.

Details

Used by professionals and students alike, Conté Carrés offers the widest variety of techniques and effects possible for drawing, sketching and pastel work. The square shape of the crayon makes them ideal for everything from coloured backgrounds to more precise detailed work. Each contains the highest level of pigment and this together with lightfastness and the exceptional brightness and purity of the colours makes it a favourite with the pastel artist. Used by the masters themselves; Picasso, Degas and Delacrois.
