would you need to be able to take this stuff down eventually? or would this be a permanent installation?

Well you could frame your posters!

I don't think you can modge podge directly on the wall, if you plan to leave, but maybe you could create (depending on the size of your wall) say 12 pieces of wood, or cardboard cut to the size of 10 by 10, and mod podge on those, and install them on the wall. That way you can take them down, but still get the same look. Or even three or four big long panels..

as Lia said, the best way to go is to collage or to mod podge large pieces of whatever ( I have used posterboard cut to the size of the wall) and tack them up to the wall

I too would suggest decoupaging plywood or something you can remove easily later. Poster board may curl really bad from the moisture of the adhesives you'd use. But foam core or mat board would probably stand up to the gluing and be lightweight to hang on the wall

If you don't want to use that much Mod Podge, you could try spray adhesive or wallpaper paste. Watered down pvc (white) glue would work also.

I have a great thing that's called a Crayola Poster Picture Stick, which (imperminently) attaches psoters, etc. to your wall. I've made 2 collages on my wall (framed right on the wall) with this glue stick. Just you have to put on a little sparingly so the picture doesn't rip, but it leaves such a tiny bit of residue that it's worth getting!

I'm in the middle of decoupaging my closet ceiling. Modge Podge should work for you (It worked for me) I have a medium sized walk-in closet that I use as an art room (I have enough room for a small table, a chair, and a shelf for my stuff. So far the ceiling looks really good. Hopefully I'll finish soon! Smiley
