Conte Carres Artist's Crayon
Conté Carrés is a hard pastel crayon, with a slightly harder consistency than normal pastels. Used by professionals and students alike, this crayon offers the widest variety of techniques and effects possible for drawing, sketching and pastel work. The square shape allows the covering of large areas using the flat, long side. For different intensity, just vary the pressure. For fine lines, use the short side of its edges. With high pigment load, together with lightfastness and exceptional brightness and purity of colour, this is a favourite with the pastel artist. Used by the masters themselves; Picasso, Degas and Delacrois.
Suitable on both paper and canvas. Fixing is recommended. 6 x 6mm square end, available in 48 colours.
