Gochujang - from thick paste to sauce?

I love the Korean sweetish spicy pepper paste and would like to transform that into a sauce. Any suggestions on technique would be appreciated!

This is my own recipe for a Korean style marinade http://www.food52.com/recipes...
Also I've been testing recipes for a friend and you can use the gochujang in a quick, as opposed to a long fermented kimchi. She also sent me some korean hot pepper, gochugaru, which I refer to as Korean meth.

You want to make a gochujang sauce for dipping? I would just thin it with some water and/or oil.

You can make ssamjang which uses gochujang and doenjang and other flavorings for a nice dipping sauce. Ssam means wrapped and usually means lettuce wraps.

I like the ssamjang from this recipe. http://projects.washingtonpost...
