Conte A Paris pastel pencils give amateur and professional artists both the depth and brilliance of their colours and the precision of their lines. They are unequalled for creating details, drawings from life or portraits and are an ideal companion for pastel crayons because its lead is slightly harder, with less pigment. When you require detail for small and medium sized formats, Pastel Pencil is preferable to Soft Pastels.
The Conté a Paris Pastel Pencils are excellent for toning and colouring in. Rich in pigment and larger than most other pastel pencils with a 5mm core very fine, smooth lead.
Suitable for all coloured papers or colouring in books, however the intense opaqueness is more evident when used on darker coloured paper.
Cased in a durable hard wood, Conte A 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.
