How to paint ceramic tile
I want to change the color of my ceramic tile tabletop by painting or decoupodge
I just answered this same question for some a couple days ago Betty. Here's a link to our conversation. http://www.hometalk.com/2405810/tile And here's a link to Sherwin Williams about painting ceramic tile. http://www.sherwin-williams.com/property-facility-managers/education/styles-and-techniques/sw-article-pro-resuscitateold.html
I have painted tile back-splash and because the mural was still in pieces I was able to bake them to set the enamel paint. Most of the enamel paint will set up/cure within 21 days, if not fired. If this table is used a lot, I would paint a design on the tile, let stand for 21 days or longer then have a piece of glass cut and placed on top to preserve the art work.
I painted the tile in our kitchen by sanding first using Kilz primer allowing it to dry and then painting. Turned out nice.
