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.
