Gesso would be better, it will give you a more granular like surface, acrylic is slick/plastic.

Hi there,

Im going to be starting a mural very soon with my kids, it's an 8x4' panel
of this super-compressed coardboard/wood "stuff". Very flat,sturdy,
non-warping, lightweight and cheap! We will be using tempera to paint
with, Im wondering what is the best base coat for a tempera mural is.
Plain old white latex house paint? I know that's good for an acrylic
mural...also for tempera? Or...? Any suggestions appreciated!

Thanks a bunch!!!
