What is a 2b pencil used for?

I only know about a # 2 pencil.


Answer by  Holiwog (45)

It is used to draw or sketch softer lines, although it is more useful for shading. The higher the number, the softer the graphite in the pencil.

A number 2b pencil will have a darker color than a regular number 2 pencil, the b stands for black. It can be used when shading a drawing.
