Painting ceramic tiles

What kind of glass paint will hold up to being grouted in?

I want to paint some ceramic tiles and I need a paint that'll be tough enough to survive the tilesetters grouting them in place without the paint flaking or peeling off.

I can't help with this but you may want to try the Mosaic forum on this Garden below. Good luck!

RE: Painting ceramic tiles

Can you paint them after they are set and grouted? That would cut out the abrasion and surface trauma.

Just a thought.


RE: Painting ceramic tiles

Would it be possible to cover the tiles with something during the grouting process? I have used plaid enamel paint and it is very durable (dishwasher safe) on ceramic. You could forego the baking of the tile and let it cure for a month instead. That way you could paint the tiles after they are grouted. I might do a test tile to see what the durability is after curing, but I think it will be very durable.
