Allrighty. So I finally broke down and bought a set of watercolors. Problem is, I have NO clue whatsoever how to use them. I bought a block of 140lb cold pressed watercolor paper. Do I still need a board to stretch the paper on? And I spritz my paper with water BEFORE painting? Do I just use the paint out of the tube, or do I need to dilute it with water? :)

I'm hoping some of you watercolor gurus out there can help. :>
