Painting Ceramic Tile - We have a ceramic tile surround around an existing fireplace -- except there are lots of tiles with painted (?) ducks on them. There are vent-free gas logs there now, and the heat is an issue. We're hoping to paint over the ducks, but are concerned about the heat -- the tiles get so hot they are not safe to touch. Is there a high-heat ceramic paint product you could recommend? Thanks.
ANSWER ANSWER -
There is no paint per se manufactured for ceramic tile. Normally what bonds the best to a clean surface of ceramic tile is epoxy paint. Some epoxy paints do have a relatively high heat resistance, and I have seen them used successfully around fireplaces. Good Luck!
