How do i use a chinese ink set?

I got a chinese ink set from Hobby Lobby and it came with no instructions…
In the little red box it has two paint brushes, a little cup with a small spoon, a thing with some red stuff in it, a black stick thingy ( chalk? ), and a black bowl shape thing but its not made from glass…
What do I do with that? Oh yeah and there’s a greenish stick thingy with a statue on top of it, it made from what seems to be stone?…

The green stick with a statue is a chop, at the opposite end to the statue there is a flat surface, you can get that engraved with a symbol or signature (in reverse). To sign your picture you dip it in the red stuff and stamp it on the paper.

The black stick is compressed ink, put a little water in the bowl, and dip the ink stick and rub it on the side of the bowl, this will turn the water into a grey black ink.

Hold the brush vertically (not sloped in the western pen manner), dip it in the ink and paint away.
