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. :>

thanks!

I dabbled a bit with the paper still on the block, and was... really not happy with the results. I did spritz the paper down though. I also found that the brushes that came with the paints suck- The first time I used them, and the bristles were already coming loose and sticking in the paint. I want to get some new ones, and some frisket, then I'll try again. :)
