I, too, have been quietly following this one, although right here, getting ideas all along.  Did you make the stencil yourself? 
I just took a printout of it , covered it in tamiya masking tape on a small mirror , and startet the painstaking cutting , haha

I use a sponge to dab it on, let it sit a little and 'redab' to get a little struckture in it . Then I like to add some splashes with a light 'dry mud' color to get some contrast . They are good , they dont dry out ( well, that can probably happend ) but mine are about 6+ months , and show no signs of getting old . they have nice thick consistent, and price is not to bad
