This set contains 12 assorted Conte a Paris Pastel Pencils in a tin. Pastel Pencils offer more control compared to pastels and are exceptionally good for creating fine detail pastel drawings. Conte Pastel Pencils blend easily and have a wide 5mm lead so that colour can be laid down quickly across the paper.
This tin of 12 Conte Pastel Pencils contains the following colours: 004 Medium Yellow, 012 Orange, 003 Vermilion, 048 Flesh, 046 Dark Ultramarine, 029 Light Blue, 002 Dark Green, 044 St Michael Green, 017 Yellow Ochre, 001 Bistre, 009 Black & 013 White.
Try combining Conte Pastel Pastels with Conte Soft Pastels or Conte Carres Hard Pastels to achieve a variety of pastel techniques, from expressive pastel work and colour layering to fine detail precision drawing.
We recommend that you use these pastel pencils on a pastel paper. Pastel paper has a grain for the pastel to adhere to, preventing the pastel pigment from falling off the paper. Once you have completed your pastel piece, use a fixative to protect the pastel and to keep colours rich and vibrant.
This set is ideal for beginners and artists.
