Pastel pencils

The exceptional diameter (5mm) of the Conté à Paris Pastel Pencil lead gives genuine freedom of creation and has an unrivalled feel.

It is the perfect pencil companion to Soft Pastels because its lead is slightly harder, with less pigment. When you require detail for small and medium sized formats, Pastel Pencil is preferable to Soft Pastels and Carré Crayons.

In contrast with Soft Pastels, Pastel Pencils are best used as pure colours laid out in patchwork fashion, side by side - rather than layered - so the shades are not diminished.

Available in a range of 48 vibrant colours, loose and in sets.
