    You can't. They are a plastic resin with marble dust molded together. You can choose to paint, but it is just a temporary fix, will eventually peel.

      I think that could cause other issues like thickness, and water getting behind and mold. If it's dull, maybe you can try polish g it with car wax and buff it out. But not on floor! Hope you find an answer.

    Kim and Cheryl syggestions are great for countertops but not in wet locations. You can try tub and tile kits but it's just a band aid fix. Will not last and eventually fail.

    Check out the poly ceiling panels at www.udecor.com. Will probably need to prime with mold control primer and use either adhesive for kitchen and bath or exterior. Should do some online footwork for good instructions. You will need to probably use a diamond sand block to rough up surface. That will be a pain in the butt because of the dust-needing the use of a dust mask and protective eyewear. It can be done but this what you may have to expect in that area.

      Thanks Carol. Yes, the dust involved is a big concern to me. I’m old! So I don’t want to lose any lung power I know I’ll need for the coming years. lol
