I agree with frollard regarding the acrylic house paint but I'd add the provision that you first lay down a base coat, primer-sealer. That will eliminate the bleed through and the blotchiness  you experienced the last time.

Totally agreed - I figured primer 'goes without saying' but its very true; great minds think like us :D

Acrylic house paint is going to be very expensive to get in many colors.  Unless the mural is going to need quarts of paint I'd go for regular acrylic artists paint.
