Conte a’ Paris have been manufacturing some of the finest artists' materials available for more than 200 years. Many artists and grand masters have used Conté à Paris products because of the selection of pigments, lightfastness, and the exceptional brightness and purity of the colours. Conte offers a traditional range of Drawing and Sketching Pencils with a variety of exceptional leads. These pencils are excellent for portrait, landscape and still life work. It is recommended that the barrel alone should be sharpened with a knife and the lead shaped with a scraper or sandpaper. Conte Carre Crayons are baked with kaolin clay and are firmer than soft pastels, which means they work well on smooth paper as well as textured surfaces.
