Colour Crayons, also referred to as Conté à Paris carrés, are harder than pastels or charcoals. This hardness creates crisp, tight lines rather than the more smudged look of pastel and charcoal. They are produced from a highly rigorous choice of pigments, clay and a binder. They are then baked after being extruded and dried.
The Conté à Paris Colour carré crayons give accurate and energetic strokes when the edges of the sticks are used, and artists can produce flat areas by using the flat of the crayon to create the values.
Carres Crayons can be used with any types of grained papers (especially semi-coloured papers), canvas or surfaces with an uneven texture are perfect. Contains 12 colours selected for landscape work.
