Paint TilesA fresh lick of paint is a great way to save money and transform your old wall tiles. Tile paint is specifically designed to paint over glass, porcelain and ceramic tiles. And unlike normal paint it won’t flake off over time. All it takes is a small amount of preparation and your tiled area will be looking brand new.

Step 1. Prepare the project

As with any paint project, painting wall tiles is all about the preparation. This step-by-step video will take you through the various stages of cleaning, preparing, priming and painting for a perfect finish. There are also a few handy hints to make the job a bit easier.

Step 2. Clean and sand the surface of the tiles

Start by preparing your surfaces, which means giving your tiles a good clean with a tile-cleaning product. Once the surface is dry, give the tiles a light sand to score the surface. This will help take the glaze off the surface of the tiles and help the paint to bond better to the surface. Once the surface is sanded, wipe away the dust.

Step 3. Mask up the edges

Now you’re ready to mask off the edges with tape. Make sure you use long runs of tape to give you a straighter edge. When the masking is done, give the tiles another quick wipe with a rag to clear off all the dust – just to make sure the paint will stick.

Step 4. Prime the surface of the tiles with tile primer

The best way to prime the surface is by using both a paintbrush and a roller. The brush allows you to paint up to the edges or ‘cut in’, while the roller can cover large surfaces quickly. When the primer has dried, and had time to cure (refer to the instructions), give it a very light sand. Then wipe off the dust and you’re ready to paint.

Step 5. Paint the tiles with tile paint

Stir your paint thoroughly and then pour half of the tile paint it into a clean working pot. Starting in the top corner, work your brush down the tiles to create a wet edge. Then work your way across the wall, maintaining that wet edge as you go. This way you can avoid any overlapping brush marks.
