Oh good! One quick thing I noticed the tutorial doesn't cover, you have to go into the diffuse map of the shader you are applying and put a "vertex color" map on it. Otherwise your modifications will not render at all.

I still think making an unwrap , then working in photoshop is better. But if you find out different, please let me know. Still really new to this and looking for the best method as well :) just seems like you get more detail from PS.
