The exceptional 5mm diameter of the Conté à Paris pastel pencil 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. It is preferable to Conté soft pastels and crayons when detail is required for small and medium sized formats. In contrast with soft pastel, 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).

Conte pastel pencils remain a firm favourite with me. (Posted on 16/03/2017)
Review by Feefo
I love Conte pastel pencils, they are lovely and soft and chalky and makes pastel painting a joy. The one thing that is annoying about Conte Pencils is that often there feels as though there is a small piece of grit or glass in the lead of the pencil and it scratches the paper. I have to keep a piece of sandpaper next to me when I am painting to try and sand the gritty part of the lead away. As I said it is annoying but obviously not annoying enough to stop me using them. I'm not sure if they have changed recently, I can't always remember there being "paris " on the side of the pencil maybe this is new thing. I cannot re-type this into every colour pencil below but the same applies to all the colours. (Posted on 23/10/2014)
