I am looking for paint for my 3D rooms. I have done some research, and found the price to be quite high..... Does anyone have any advice for an inexpensive or at least reasonable way for painting a 3D area????

You can go with something as cheap as neon/fluorescent acrylics or tempra paint, for as cheap as 2 for $1 (i believe they are 2oz bottles) at craft stores, but the durability, glow, and color selection/vibrance will not be as good as with the pro paints. Cheapest I have found in the pro stuff is DayGlo brand paints. Last I looked around $50 a gallon...I have used it and highly recommend it! Similar in price to a good Sherwin Williams exterior paint. Hope this info helps!

We swear by Dayglo. Yes the price is higher per gallon than standard paint, but it can be thinned (especially if using it through an airbrush) and the quality is worth the cost.
