Hey Kathleen,

Still enjoying your watercolor pencils? I also have a small box of them. I bought them when I saw the tutorial of Thaneeya, have found that one? If not, you can find it here, http://www.art-is-fun.com/watercolor-pencil-art-lesson.html I made several pieces following her instructions, it is way fun! I think that is the only thing I have done with them so far. 

Besides from color directly on your surface and water it down, your can also take a wet brush and touch the point of your pencil so you brush directly on the surface. Or scratch on a scribbling pad and pick up some color with a wet brush before putting it to your artwork.

Well, I do not know if it helps? I will keep an eye on this discussion to get some more tips!
