Conte crayons have quickly become one of my favorite mediums in the last few months. Their only downfall I found was when working on a smaller scale, like a 9x12", it was difficult for fine detailing. So, recently I also picked up the pencils Conte Sketching Set, Dull Tones Set. Conte is a hybrid of graphite/charcoal (depending) and clay. Originally they were made due to a shortage in graphite during that time era, but clearly it was a wise idea as many people still favor them today. They have the grit-feeling of graphite but the smoothness of clay and the way I use them is much similar to chalk pastels. These don't give quite the same painterly effect as chalk pastels, but I would still say it's a safe comparison as far as methods of use. My preferred paper to couple up with Conte is Canson Pastel Mi-Teintes. A rough paper is essential.

One small complaint is that these smudge easily and can become quite messy.

Theses also come in brighter colors.

The selection of colors is simple: black, white, sepia & sanguine. I am not exactly sure of the names of the "browns." Conte also has a variety of sepias and sanguines, but they don't specify which ones are in this set.
I use this set in portrait drawing classes. After laying down the browns, I rub the side of the white crayon on top and use a stump to smooth it out. This creates delicious flesh tones.

This is a good price for a great set of Conte crayons. This is a base color set, and I'd like to see the same type of well priced sets for greens, blues, etc. Very nice for the beginning artist to experiment with quality art materials.

This is a MATCHBOX size set. I was initially very disappointed when I received this and then realized that they were just right for me and, while pricey, not out of line for this high quality product. Overall, excellent. Just tiny.

crayons are alot smaller than appears in pictures. But are just what was needed to finish this art project. Just might have to look around for larger ones.

My drawing instructor required us to have conte crayons, but the local stores didn't have any in stock. I ordered this online and absolutely love "playing" with them. I have used them on regular charcoal paper as well as textured scrapbook paper. They are so much fun and can be blended to get awesome results. I love the little box they are in...just about one and a half the size of a real matchbox---they fit in the take-out section of my toolbox.

I never used Conte before needed it for a drawing drawing class. The white wasn't helpful at all, it didn't work well for highlighting and it also didn't really lighten other tones. The brown has a rich tone feel to it, however I loved the brick toned one I adored. It came out a rich, deep orange shade which I used for a drawing of a snail and it was better than I anticipated. The black is exactly what you think you would get. The bad thing, when buying Conte look at the sizing this package came and it was the size of two old fashioned matchboxes together. I was a bit shocked about that, I did have plenty for my project, but if you use these a lot you will need the bigger package.

I use conte in drawing all the time. I mix it with pastels, ink, pencil. I use it as a mixed media tool. I like the feel of it in my hand. I've been using it for years since I started life drawing classes in school. Now I just throw it in with all my other drawing supplies and just grab it and draw, considering it another valuable color in my collectionThe conte crayons are new set of media for me, and I highly enjoyed using them. The conte crayons are especially fun to use with toned paper, and I plan to continue on using them!
