Conte Bamboo Box Sets
The bamboo box sets contains all the essential colours in the range and also provides an excellent storage solution for the crayons.
These beautiful bamboo boxes contain a selection of either:-
Conté Carrés Crayons have a slightly harder consistency than normal pastels and are also a little less pigmented which makes them more transparent. Use them on coloured paper to achieve a deeper luster.
Try to move the crayon in broad strokes and with an even pressure to make the most of the paper´s tooth. The square shape of the crayons inspires a lot of different techniques. To cover larger areas you use the long, flat side. For different intensity, you just vary the pressure. For fine details you use the short side and its edges. Suitable both on paper and canvas. To make your work last we recommend fixation.
Conté Soft Pastels are made of the very finest artists’ pigments, lime and clay, along with other carefully chosen components. This mixture will result in rich, rather opaque strokes with a velvet finish.
With the Soft Pastels you can create masterpieces in a larger scale and apply several layers to achieve depths in the drawings. Soft pastels are perfect on coloured papers.
To make your art last for a really long time, we recommend fixation.

Super compact set of quality pastels (Conte Bamboo Box Set 48 Conte Soft Pastels)by Chris Piggott (Milton Keynes, United Kingdom) on 2 Nov 2012
"I really love my Conte crayons, so was pleased to see the range of soft pastels. I think it might be a new extension to their range, or I certainly hadn't seen it before.
Excellent product, reacting to "feel" in use and giving a great vibrant colour. Colours blend well, don't overload paper tooth but give response to pressure well. The compact box is robust and I think it will become well travelled over the years with me.
I'm a fan already !"

Lovely colours, sturdy box (Conte Bamboo Box Set 48 Conte Soft Pastels)by Kay Troughton (Reading, United Kingdom) on 1 Mar 2013
"As a beginner I had been using chalky square pastels so was delighted with these silky round ones, much easier to use. I have left one star off because I would have liked a colour index."Did you find this review helpful? yes | no
