Can I paint a glass tile backsplash a different color?
Think about it, you can never go back and could effect your resale value. If you must just use thinned down oil based white paint to the transparency you want. Brush it on wipe it off.
I agree with Kelli that it's possible you might affect the resale value on you home if you white was travertine tile. However, where we differ is with the paint. If you're going to do this no matter what, you don't have to use oil paint. You can use watered down latex paint. I used this on another porous stone product. Just brush it on, then go over it with a damp sponge if the color is too white. Do one tile at a time so that it doesn't sink in too fast for you to adjust. That way, at least you can control the color better. Wishing you the best. -Linda
