I find that an airbrush delivers that thin layer of paint and also helps
prevent the cracking that you are talking about.  Basically, I have found
that as long as you can get it thin enough and the paint has elasticity
properties, it should work well.

Jim's recipe is a great one to use.  I also, have bought paints specifically
designed to paint latex from the monster makers group.  But, again, I think it has  a lot to do with
the application method, for me any how.
