These large diameter pencils have very fine, smooth leads that are rich in pigment. The presence of abrasives provides excellent toning and stumping qualities.
Use Conté pencils to obtain a precise mark or line on a variety of papers. Pencils are pre-sharpened.

Comments about Conté Conté Pastel Pencils:
I'm ising these on Twinrocker paper that's been sized with an amber shellac mixture. The colors are beautiful but the points keep breaking whenever I sharpen them. I've tried multiple sharpeners and blades. I love how beautifully they blend into the tooth of the paper when I pass a bristle brush over them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love my Conte' Pastel Pencils in my pastel work, the color is true, so easy to use when doing fine precise work.
I would buy this product again.

Great for pastel paintings! Love it for details!
Good but not my favorite
Conte Pastel Pencils are a little harder than the Stabilo which I find softer and easier to draw with.

Love These Pencils
from Lexington, KY
The only reason I didn't give these a 5 star rating is because they are a bit temperamental when it come to sharpening. Forget electric sharpeners. Do them by hand to get the point of choice. They are wonderful for drawing on canvases as well as for use in life drawing. These is also a great range of colors.

Conte is the best!

Conte pastel pencils are the best for details on a finished pastel painting. Their abrasiveness is great for stumping. Being able to buy open stock is much appreciated!
Good product !
from Quebec, Canada
I bought some CONTÉ pastel pencils ( open set ) to try it. Its a great product, nice colors and textures. The wood is easy to sharpen with a razor because it is relatively soft. Having fun !
