Conte A Paris has been manufacturing some of the finest artists’ materials available for more than 200 years. Many artists and grandmasters have used Conte A Paris products because of the selection of pigments, lightfastness, and the exceptional brightness and purity of the colours.


The exceptional diameter of the Conte A Paris pastel pencil (5 mm) lead gives genuine freedom of creation and has an unrivalled feel.

The pastel is a perfect pencil companion to soft pastel because it’s lead is slightly harder with less pigment.


Great for details required in small and medium-sized formats. In contrast with soft pastels, pastel pencils should not be added in successive layers of colours, but used as pure colours laid out in patchwork fashion side by side (so as not to dull the shades).


It is recommended that the barrel alone should be sharpened with a knife and the lead shaped with a scraper or sandpaper.


12 Assorted Colors Set comes in a tin box and includes: Medium Yellow, Orange, Vermilion, Flesh, Dark Ultramarine, Light Blue, Dark Green, St Michael Green, Yellow Ochre, Bistre, Black & White..


A range of quality pastel pencils. These pencils can provide the perfect solution to creating more linear and finer, more detailed work.

Sharpen them with a razor blade or knife. Pencils come pre-sharpened.
