Okay, I need a quick sanity check
when I was younger - like 15 or 16 years ago - I used conte crayons a fair amount.
I just picked some up for the first time since then and I must say they feel quite scratchy and unpleasant to drag across the paper. Did something change with their formula or manufacturing or ownership or what?
I also have some Nupastels and those actually feel like what I remember conte crayons feeling like.

I havenít used conte crayons for a while, but my recollection is the sepia ones were always scratchy, and white a tiny bit less so. I switched to prismacolor stix way back, but then those were too wax bloomy and broke constantly.

Both of those are why I got way in to expensive colored pencils. Colored pencil brands have exploded in the past 10-15 years. I never got too far into pastels because of the dust.
