Conté à Paris Pastel Pencils
Conté à French Pastel Pencils
The Conté à Paris pastel pencil lead is a wide 5mm diameter giving unrivaled coverage. The pastel is a perfect pencil companion to soft pastels because it's lead is slightly harder with less pigment. In contrast with soft pastel, pastel pencils should not be added in successive layers of colours, but used as pure colours laid out in patchwork fashion side by side (so as not to dull the shades). Great for adding in final details on pastel artworks.
