How do I paint ceramic tile?

- Tape around tile to protect surfaces around tile if needed.
- Hand sand using medium grit sandpaper with a sanding block or if possible an electric sander to rough up the surface so that primer can adhere.

Accordingly, what kind of paint do you use on ceramic tiles?
There are two painting options for tile:
- Latex Paint: Apply one to two coats of a bonding primer that's made to adhere to surfaces such as tile.
- Epoxy Paint: Apply two coats of a two-part epoxy paint that's made for tile and other hard to paint surfaces, such as Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile.
is painting tile a good idea? View painting tile as a treatment that may eventually wear down. Whether six months or six years from now, tile paint will begin to flake and chip. Tile painting is an excellent, quick, and low-cost way to freshen up tile in the short-term. But tile replacement is always the best option for long-term durability.
Besides, how can I change the color of my ceramic tile?
To change the color of ceramic tile, paint or coatings can be applied. However, there is a lot of confusion over whether tiles should be painted, reglazed, or refinished.
Do I need special paint for tiles?
There are specific tile paints that can be painted directly on to the tile with no need for primer or undercoat. Alternatively, use a primer followed by water- or oil-based gloss or eggshell for a hard-wearing, water-resistant finish. Wash down thoroughly using sugar soap to remove all dirt and grease.
