Painting ceramic tiles

You will need to thoroughly clean the tiles with a 50/50 solution of household ammonia. Rinse and let thoroughly dry.

Prime with a high-quality adhesion-promoting primer like Zinsser's latex-based Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer-Sealer.

Paint with one or two coats of a high-quality paint. In moisture-prone areas alkyd (oil base)finishes are preferred, as they provide a harder finish than water-base paints and are more washable and durable.

It will take about 2-3 weeks for the paint to cure. Avoid harsh cleaning products and abrasives.
