How to "faux brick" basement stucco walls

Our basement was partially finished when we moved in. Two of the walls are painted plywood, and the other two walls are cement which have a swirly stucco/plaster pattern which is painted white. I'm planning to repaint the plywood walls, and want to create a faux brick look on the cement walls.

The faux brick paint technique will be tricky, but it's worth a try. I picked up some suggestions elsewhere on this website, but any other suggestions are appreciated. I'm going for a rustic lodge look, and am planning to sponge on the brick with a brick red paint.

How do I give the bricks a realistic look? Should they all be the same paint color? How do I create a real grout look?

Thanks in advance for anyone's tips.
