Tried and tested for over 200 years; the perfect companion to charcoal.
Experience classic dry sketching and drawing medium made by the Coné company, which was established by Nicolas-Jacques Conté in 1795.
Conté Sketching Crayon Sets contain assorted coloured artist grade dry square sticks in a plastic storage box. Slightly harder than pastels, they are smooth and manufactured using natural pigments.
The pigments are finely ground and mixed with a binder. The traditional colours of Black, White, Sanguine, Bistre and Grey are made from carbon, chalk, iron oxide, soot from burnt beech wood, and sepia. While most of the crayons in this line are lightfast, some colours may fade over time when exposed to light. Please refer to this colour chart for a complete list of lightfast ratings.
Please use suitable fixatives and frames to conserve your creations.
