Sanguine:

The colour of the Conté à Paris "Sanguine" pencil is a deep "rust" and its lines are easily blended.

With a sharpened lead: the drawing is accurate, the colour is transparent and if the work is lightly drawn the Sanguine pencil lets the texture of the paper appear.

With a half-worn lead, the opacity increases with the pressure exerted on the pencil.

- Recommended for: nudes, its colour recalls that of the skin when highlighted using white. Blending the colour creates the shading.

- Use: Sanguine is frequently used in sketching to draw the body. For more complex work, it's advisable to use Pierre Noire to emphasise the contrast and white pencil to highlight the areas of light on the body.

- Exist in only 1 medium graduation

- Length 176.5 mm / Diameter 8.5 mm / Lead diameter 5 mm 

 

Sepia

The colour of the Conté à Paris "Sepia" pencil is reminiscent of burnt umber. This pencil shades easily. With a sharpened lead, you achieve an accurate and delicate finish. With a half-worn lead, the finish becomes more opaque as the pressure exerted on the pencil increases.

Recommended for:

- Rough sketches

- Nudes: enables the most contrasted parts of the body to be shaded

- Portraits: emphasises and highlights the value of a face

- Landscapes: instantly gives the colour of a tree trunk or the facade of a house.

Use: it can be used sparingly on its own but it can be blended with the Sanguine, White, Charcoal or Pierre Noire pencils for a more complex finish.
