    Try a small bottle of ceramic/glass acrylic based paint. I painted tiles and it is ok JS

    You need to sand the tiles first before painting, it helps the paint adhere.

    A lite sanding, then primer for on top of ceramic. Sherwood Williams has a good one. Paint any paint on top after 24 hrs. Wouldn't suggest it in a shower or tub area. DEB

    I painted both countertop and trim . used valspar bonding primer. than used an acrylic paint. used a small foam roller , no streak marks, and two coats .a foam brush for edge...make sure to let each coat dry 24-36 hrs between to get a hard dry finish....i did half of kitchen @ a time so i was not with out counter space while one part dried...make sure tape along edge is well secured so paint will not run underneath

    This primer works for glossy surfaces and then you can paint. It can scratch and would be a good temporary fix to hide the green.

    Hi Karen, you can use appliance epoxy spray paint like this blogger did  https://accidentalsuburbanites.com/2017/05/11/spray-painting-our-tile-shower-lessons-learned-the-hard-way/ She used the paint in her shower so it should work well in a kitchen too. Have fun
