Is there anything that has color like a pastel, but lays it down like charcoal?

Have you tried different types of pastels? There's chalk pastels which lay down a little more powdery than oil pastels for example, and also pastel pencils that can do sharper lines.

Regular old pastels?  Oil pastels are WAY too waxy, and so are crayons.  Have you tried conte?  I love it.

I like this type of pastel. Not necessarily this brand but, you get the idea.


Hard pressed so they are not as dusty as soft, but still have lots of pigmentation.

I was given a nearly brand new set of Carbothello colored pencils from a friend who was moving across the county.

The set I have describes them as a "Colored Charcoal Pencil" - I've used them a couple of times and found them to feel very similar to working with charcoal pencils.  The colors are very vibrant and the texture is not at all oily or waxy.
