Painting over white tiles

Found 16th Sep 2017
I am wondering if I could paint over white tiles in the toilet with magnolia tile paint?

Can I still keep the original glazed finish with tile paint?

The glaze is part of the tile so anything you put over will cover it. You could use gloss tile paint which will give a shiny finish.

I've never seen any painted tiles that look good. I'd only do it as a quick fix until you can get round to replacing them.

You can buy vinyl stickers that give the same effect.

I have only seen painted tiles once and they looked really bad but I didn't know if it was the wrong paint used and whether you could get a good finish. Doesn't sound like painting them is going to be a good idea.

I have vinyl sticker and I have used it at the edging. Doesn't look too bad, but neither does it look great. Hummmmmm...sound like I have to think re-tile.

I think the thing that puts me off is that the grout is painted too. It makes me wonder what horrors are beneath

Haha indeed. Either attention seeking or more likely employed or similar by the website.
