How Do I Protect Acrylic Paint on sheetrock From Water Damage?

I would use an eggshell.Under normal wear and tear an eggshell should hold up just fine.Scrape,skim,sand and PRIME before two coats of finish paint and you will be good to go.

That's pretty much the point. And the problem, because that's the link homeowners read.
