I mainly work in watercolor and know very little about pastels.I bought a box of used art supplies which included this set. They are hard like Conte sticks and behave like pastel pencils. They are probably quite old.

Thanks for any information - sorry if I got this in the wrong subforum :)

Thanks, Don! I sent an email to Conte a Paris and will see what they say. I'm also concerned about the possibly toxicity of some of the pigments.

Thanks, Deirdre! I had been looking through the gallery (great art!) before I posted and forgot to switch forums.
