Conté crayons are often compared to pastels. Granted, both are an artistic medium stick of solid pigment applied directly to the paper. However, Conté crayons are much harder than pastels or charcoals, yielding crisp, tight lines, rather than the more softer, less defined lines characteristic of pastels. Using Conté crayons, an artist can achieve subtle variations of shading in clear, distinct drawings. Conte crayon is quite permanent and artwork produced with a Conte crayon is often treated with a sprayed fixative for added longevity.
The holiday buying season is just around the corner. If you’re confused as to what the boys and girls you know want for Christmas toys, Crayola Crayon Town might just fill the bill. It’s one of the hot Christmas Toys 2009 appropriate for ages three years and up.
In a nutshell, Crayola Crayon Town combines 3D play and coloring. The animals, buildings, and figures change as the children color them. The old or broken crayons can be used to make trees and vehicles. For example the My House set uses a crayon as the body of a dog. The front head and two front feet are a plastic module that has an opening for the crayon. The other end of the crayon is inserted into the module for the back feet and tail. The uncolored version of the play mat can be downloaded at no charge online. That means more fun for no more money and added creativity.
Conté crayons are waxier and firmer than soft pastels, so they produce little dust and are easy to control. The sticks, which are 2 1/2” x 1/4” square, can be broken into shorter sections for ease of use for detail and shading. Today, Conte Crayons come in small sets of earth toned colors or larger color sets which include tans, violets, blues, reds, greens and yellows in rich, vibrant shades. The purity of the pigments used in Conte Crayons assures their permanence and longevity in art work. Some artists choose to use colored paper for their work with Conté crayons because the density of pigmentation in the crayon holds up well on a dark or colored paper surface.
Unfortunately as adults, we tend to put our crayons aside for more grown up endeavors. As we mature we put away our artistic aspirations and replace them with more worthwhile activities.
