Video: Conté à Paris Colour & Sketching Crayons

Conté à Paris Colour Carres crayons give accurate and energetic strokes when the edges of the sticks are used, and artists can produce flat areas by using the flat of the crayon to create large applications of colour. 

This Conté a Paris Carres Set contains 12 tonal sketching crayons, favoured by artists for generations. They are renowned for their smooth consistency and square profile which enables the artist to put down a sharp or broad stroke. This is why so many portrait and other sketches are undertaken in Conté Carres. They are produced by the worlds leading manufacturer of dry art products - Conté à Paris. The twelve sticks are all contained in a hinge lid plastic case which protects each stick from damage.

Carres crayons are are harder than pastels or charcoals. This hardness creates crisp, tight lines rather than the more smudged look of pastel and charcoal. They are produced from a highly rigorous choice of pigments, clay and a binder. They are then baked after being extruded and dried.
