12 or more colored pencils ( preferably Prismacolor premier....BUT the scholar grade would work, they just don't have as much pigment)
1 blending pencil ( this is a Prismacolor clear wax pencil)
Factis eraser. This is a white eraser by "Factis"
Bristol vellum paper. They come in smooth or vellum, don't get smooth! Sadly, as much as I'm for the environment, don't get the recycled or "friendly" paper, it doesn't absorb as much color.
Two hole hand sharpener ( I do have access to an electric sharpener, but bring one in case it jams)
