is conté crayon similar to oil pastels?
I have paper that says it is suitable to use with conté crayons, but I only have oil pastels. Are these two the same thing?
Conté, also known as Conté sticks or Conté crayons, are a drawing medium composed of compressed powdered graphite or charcoal mixed with a wax or clay base, Whereas oil pastels are oil based.
So it may not work on the paper you have because the oil would tend to seep into the paper and leave your work very dull.Anything made with oil should not be used on paper, but that’s not to say that people don’t do it . All I could suggest is to try it as a test.The reason I say this is because
the cont’e sticks are made of a wax base and I know wax won’t seep into your paper ,but oils will. My opinion, but your choice in the end.
