The history of Conte Crayon is interesting. During the French Revolution, when Paris was under siege, much needed supplies of English graphite were permanently embargoed, creating a problem for the French pencil-maker, artist and scientist Nicholas-Jacques Conté. Conté had opened his pencil factory with his brother, Louis in 1793. For his business to survive, he had to find another way to produce a workable writing medium with a minimal amount of graphite that could be manufactured in France.
In 1795 Conté developed a method that involved mixing powdered local graphite with clay, waxes and water, firing the mixture in a kiln and forcing it into wooden casings. This process allowed the French to produce their own pencils and control the hardness of the leads, which in turn controlled the darkness of the mark made by the pencil. The process was so successful that Conté became synonymous with pencil, and Conté still manufactures high grade writing and drawing tools.
As a Conte Crayon is used, the stick will slowly erode, and it should not require any sharpening unless detail is desired. Manufacturers also offer Conté crayons in varying degrees of hardness, allowing artists to use Conté crayons for softer lines and more delicate shading as well as strong, precise lines for delineation. Conte Crayons are sold both individually and in boxed sets, with many art supply stores carrying an abundance of individual black, brown, and red Conté crayons, since these colors are in high demand.
They have the challenge to assemble and build the setting doing whatever their imagination tells them. They can use the crayons to make their own wacky animals, vehicles, and structures. Once the town has been constructed, they can start playing and just go wherever their imagination takes them.
Today, there are approximately 120 colors of crayons currently available. Some have glow in the dark properties, some are scratch and sniff, some change colors when used on paper, others have glitter combined with the crayola crayons wax in such a way as to allow drawing made with glitter crayons to glisten in the sunlight. From a parenting perspective, the easy wash off the walls formula is a scientific breakthrough of phenomenal proportions.
