    my friends used some clay etched tiles I made that were coated in regular food grade clear ceramic for their fireplace and they are fine apparently. I think a baked finish helps when you're baking things repeatedly.

      I don't bake them. These tile are pre-mades that I painted, sprayed 2 coats of Kamar varnish, and then sprayed 3 coats of engine enamel. I have abused them with cold, wet, hot cups, and microwaved cups. No problems so far. I just want to be sure they will stand up to years of use as a back splash. If you know of a better finish product that is not baked, I would love the info. Thanks!!
