Carres Crayons - Sketching Range
The sketching range is composed of various reputable red, grey and blackish-brown tints with 3 gradations of black and white to complete the range.
These crayons are very soft to use and are manufactured using natural pigments (iron oxides, carbon black, titanium dioxide), clay (kaolin) and a binder (cellulose ether). They are then baked after being extruded and dried. The degree of baking varies the grade (hardness: H/softness: B) of the black and white crayons.

Two special tints for portraits (rose and brown) were recently developed and enhance this "sketching" range.
