Conté A Paris Crayons and Pencils

Conte A Paris Crayons and Pencils

Used by the masters themselves - Picasso, Degas, Delacroix - for more than a century, Conté a Paris has been the brand specialist in pastel sketching and drawing.

Founded in 1795 by Nicolas Jacques Conté, Conté crayons are a unique blend of clay and graphite, thus making it finally possible to create different grades of harness for pencils. Nicolas Jacques Conté also invented the "Carré" which is made up of a blend of natural pigments, kaolin clay and graphite and is perfect for sketching and drawing.

Artists today have the option of choosing Conté's carrés, pastel pencils, sketching pencils, and charcoals to express creativity with many techniques and effects.

Carré's are a blend of natural pigments, kaolin clay and graphite which makes them perfect for sketching and drawing.
