Conte a Paris Pastel Pencils are a very high quality artists pencil. They feature a density which is slightly harder and less pigmented than that of the soft pastel range. The pastel pencils compliment soft pastels well as their difference in density means that they can achieve more detailed and precise lines. The exceptional diameter (5mm) of the pastel pencil lead gives genuine freedom of creation and has an unrivalled feel. Unlike soft pastels, it is not recommended to use pastel pencils in successive color additions, but instead by applying side by side in a patchwork fashion so that the colours remain pure and do not lose their brightness.
