What type of paint to use when painting a mural?

Question by and_then_she_said: What type of paint to use when painting a mural?
I’m painting a mural in my baby sisters room. To save on paint, we were just planning on painting the mural onto the primer. Is that a bad idea? What type of paints would work best for this?

You can use acrylics. Cheap (you know Delta) types. You get what you pay for though. That being said, if they intend to change the room after a while, painting over a mural, depending on the colours and thickness can be a real pain in the butt. Keep coats thin. If coats are thin, then the cheaper acrylics won’t be for you as they more often than not, need multiple upon multiple coats.
