Default Stamping on walls question and help please!

When you stamp on your walls in your home do you just use acrylic paint? Do you need to mix it with anything to keep it on the wall or is it fine the way it is? If it is in a childs room would you do anything to help protect it from chipping or wearing if they are touching it or anything? I am going to be doing some fun things on my sons walls but I just want to make sure my time doesnt go to waste by it getting ruined!

Any help would be appreciated!

Here is another thread about stamping on walls. There is a link to another thread in there too.

If I were to stamp on walls again, I would use acrylic latex wall paint (like you get at Home Depot). I would also choose the same finish (flat, satin, gloss) as the wall I plan to stamp on. I also like the idea of stamping on clear contact paper.

Oh yes,this is where it all started for me,I wanted to do something in my kitchen,thought I wanted a ivy pattern. I had sponge painted my kitchen in pastells and was real pleased but thought a pattern would be fun,something I could just paint over when I was done. Bought an ivy set from Stampin up,stamped the kitchen,it was lovely and went fast. Used acrilic paints and a sponge to control the amount of paint on the stamp,put the paint on a paper plate,and went to town. If what I did was not quite right,I had my wet rag to fix the problem and went from there.That was ten years ago,have moved but it was really sharp,had MANY compliments,and I did it myself.
