First time using conte crayons and I am really enjoying them! They are smooth like charcoal, not sticky as oil pastels, yet they are very rich in color.

Rated by: Nicholas C. in Las Vegas, NV
I really liked these crayons. They made my art look like it could never have before. They are truly unique. They are able to make many different kinds of lines too. I strongly advise anyone who hasn;t used them to buy them.
Rated by: Shari D. in Chicago, IL
I truly enjoy these crayons. Not only do they perform as a colored charcoal type medium but also with the richness of using natural clay to sketch with. They are the best natural colored medium that I have encountered and I highly recommend them to beginners and experienced artists alike.
Rated by: J. M. in St. Francisville, LA
The colors of these crayons are beautiful. The earthy colors are very rich. Unfortunately, they did not work in the project I was involved with. However, in regular use, I think they would be fine. We were attempting to use them for rubbings in order to get a variety of textures and colors, but they were not at all suitable for that.
Rated by: david k. in denver, CO
If you are trying to accomplish what I did and incorporate these with acrylics, don't waste your time. they rub off and are not easy to get thin lines with. For drawing painting incorporation I would suggest paint pens. They are amazing and last for some time. Other than that the crayons are great.

Conte crayons are one of the most useful and best quality items an artist can have.
Rated by: Lindsay S. in Baton Rouge, LA
They work great in my drawing class. I love how you can break one and it still works fine.
Rated by: Queen G. in Mty., TX
Fantastic!!!! I love specially the white ones, because I can create great lightnig effects along with the black crayon; I got the red ones but I haven't thought of a good project to do with them :):):)
Rated by: Lucille C. in Sonoma, CA
Conte Crayons is an important part of my life drawing sketches. I enjoy using these crayons for fast one minute and 2 minute poses. I turn the crayon on its side, mass in the body shape and with a few defining lines I get great results.
