Default stamping on walls

I'm trying to stamp my walls tonight but not having luck using the regular paint from Walmart.
Should I use craft ink, acrylic paint or what? I'm not getting a solid color when stamping with the paint. Looks messy.
Please help me so I can finish my room.

I'd go with acrylic paint, the kind you buy in 1 or 2 oz. bottles in the craft section. Then cover with a sealant after you're done to protect it.

I used su craft pads when I stamped my nephew's bed room. Worked well, and there is a window of time that you can wipe the walls off if you aren't happy with the look.

I use acrylic paint for this. Apply the paint to the stamp with a foam brush. This works well. Good luck.

Hi Julie

I did my bathroom a few weeks ago with Bloomin' Wonderful. I used the acrylic paints over a semi-gloss on the walls. To "ink" I used cheesecloth for the flower, and I used a foam brush for the swirly part.

My images were a little bit splotchy - not completely solid and after doing a border I figured it was the nature of it being a stamp. Believe me - I am a perfectionist and I touched up a few with a fine brush (where I didn't ink evenly) and I was SO tempted to go over them to smooth them out, but I left them as is. I realized I was going to take away the stamped look if I went over them too much with the brush.

I wonder if I had painted the walls with a satin finish if they'd have turned out differently, but I am still happy with the overall result. The hardest part was to ink evenly, not squish the stamp too hard on the wall (displacing too much ink and major splotchage) , and to pull it away without smearing it.

HTH - good luck to you and keep me posted as to how it turns out.

There is another thread called Stamping of Walls that has great ideas about this subject. No just about the kind of paint but how to make it easy to remove when you want something different or just changed your mind.
Anyway check that other thread is very good too...
