Hi! I’m a keen DIYer and just finishing hand-painting a very glossy front door, however, the storm-porch flooring really lets it down! It’s just not practical to retile at the moment but I’ve seen lots online about painting interior ceramic tiles and then stencilling. I’d like to have a go but am wondering as to what the best products might be to use? The porch is covered but not enclosed, it’s north-facing so doesn’t get too much bad weather or sunshine. It does obviously have a fair amount of foot traffic. The tiles are a beige quarry type so not glazed.
I’ve contacted Tikkurila as they have such an extensive product range and the response was that they don’t have anything suitable. I suspect most paint manufacturers wouldn’t want to guarantee that a paint is suitable for a non-specified use?
I think the adhesion primer might be key here? What primer might be the best bet? I want something durable but understand that this would be a temporary measure.
Many thanks in advance for any thoughts or experiences .
