Tried and tested for over 200 years; the perfect companion to charcoal.
Experience classic dry sketching and drawing medium made by the Conté company, which was established by Nicolas-Jacques Conté in 1795.
Conté Sketching Crayons are artist grade dry square sticks that are slightly harder than soft 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.
Draw on all types of grained paper or canvases, holding them upright or using the flat edge by varying the pressure.
Please use suitable fixatives and frames to conserve your creations.
