These crayons are very soft to apply and manufactured using natural pigments (iron oxides, carbon black, titanium dioxide), clay (kaolin) and a binder (cellulose ether). Choose White or Black 2B crayons.

Invented in France in 1795 by Nicolas-Jacques Conté especially for drawing and sketching, Conté à Paris Crayons are made from a blend of natural pigments, kaolin clay, and graphite. The Conté à Paris crayon has been used by many of the world's greatest artists, including Picasso, Delacroix, and Degas.

The rich, vivid colors of Conté à Paris Crayons mix together nicely, and a range of effects can be consistently produced. They are well suited for use on newsprint, bristol, toned paper or heavily grained surfaces. Their rich opacity makes them ideal for work on darker papers and their quality ensures the longevity of drawings. Conté à Paris crayons are waxier and much firmer than soft pastels, so they produce little dust and are easy to control.
