The easiest way is using your bathtub. Make sure it's clean and fill it about 6" deep with lukewarm water. Gently submerge your paper in the water in a sliding motion. After soaking about 5-10 minutes grasp a corner and pull the paper out of the water, supporting it while the water drips off. Lay the wet paper on a clean board and gently smooth the paper with a clean sponge and remove any excess water. Proceed to stretch the paper to your liking. You can also dampen the paper with a sponge and spray bottle on a clean board. You'll have to flip the paper a few times to adequately saturate the paper enough to stretch it.
