Conté crayons are extremely versatile and may be used for a variety of techniques. Conte Carre are harder than pastels and charcoal. They can be applied with the corner for fine lines and the flat edge to make large strokes.

Made from a blend of natural pigments, kaolin clay, as well as graphite, these pastel sticks provide particularly soft and smooth drawing. They are well suited for use on newsprint, bristol, toned paper or heavily grained surfaces.
