Lefranc & Bourgeois Conte Pastel & Watercolor Pencil

Conte Pastel pencils

The exceptional diameter of the Conte pastel pencil (5 mm) lead gives genuine freedom of creation and has an unrivalled feel. The pastel is perfect pencil companion to soft pastel because its lead is slightly harder with less pigment. It is preferable to Conte soft pastels and crayons when details is required for small and medium sized formats. In contrast with soft pastels, pastel pencil 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).
Lenght 176.5 mm / Diameter 8.5 mm / Lead diameter 5m

The Conte Watercolour pencils range is the ideal complement to tradtional watercolours with its 48 bright and highly pigmented colours. You can obtain subtle watercolour tints by passing a wet brush or sponge over your drawing. The line will be more dense on paper that is already damp. You can also dip the lead directly into water to make certain areas brighter.
