Question by Coffee: How to use an 80 piece deluxe art set?
Hi. So I received an 80 piece deluxe art set for my birthday and i’m afraid that I don’t know how to use the supplies.
It comes with:
24 oil pastels
24 color pencils
24 watercolor cakes
1 kneaded eraser
1 standing block
The color pencils come in pastel colors, natural colors and basic colors.
The oil pastels look like flat crayons
The pencils are HB and 2B (what does that mean?)
The cakes look like paint
There is also sand paper in there. What do i do with that?
What’s the difference between a regular eraser and a kneaded one?
I am way over my head here. Any answers, advice, or links you could provide would be very much appreciated.
Thanks so much!

80 Piece Deluxe Art Set (example)
what is not listed, is paper, water color paper, sketching paper,
check dollar stores or Art hobby stores for different types of art paper to use,
even small canvas if able,
different mediums for different art work
water color cakes require glass of water for wetting, and still requires art paper to paint with
coloured pencil can be use on basic paper or sketch pads,
pastels best on art paper , or fine gesso grained canvas,
HB and 2B pencil is standard, and soft or darker , for sketching or outlining ,
sandpaper , not much use, could use for sanding pencil point , or scuffing canvas smooth,
