How have you painted laser scribed brick walls?

This is the first time I have worked with laser scribed brick and I don't want to mess it up. It is a short-run kit, not likely to be produced again. Previously I worked with plastic brick and just wiped grey paint into the seams.

There seem to be two methods:
1. paint the whole thing brick red, then rub powder into the mortar grooves
2. paint the whole thing grey, then dry brush the surface with brick colored paint.

I use real dry wall mud. Thinned with water. Dip a damp rag into the thinned drywall mud, rub it into the grooves. Let it dry. Then wipe clean with damp rag.
