How to Paint Tile
Most of us have a new year’s resolution to update our kitchen and never do. We live with dated cabinets, backsplashes, countertops for years saving up money each week to do a whole new kitchen renovation. We forget that with a little paint, we can transform anything. If your kitchen needs help, why not DIY with MudPaint? MudPaint adheres to almost any surface and is easy to use. Tile, cabinets, … you name it!
50/50 Solution of Vinegar and Warm Water, TSP Substitute, or a degreaser
100 grit sandpaper
Step 1: Cleaning the tile is the most important step. Remove the grease with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and warm water or TSP Substitute. If they are too dirty, use a degreaser to do the trick.
Step 2: Wash with fresh water after and allow to dry.
Step 3: Rough up the surface with 100 grit sandpaper.
Step 4: Wipe off the dust.
Step 5: Cover countertops with newspaper to protect them.
Step 6: Apply first coat of MudPaint with a paint brush.
Step 7: Allow to dry.
Step 8: Apply a second coat if needed.
Step 9: Allow to dry.
Step 10: Finish with a top coat.
*A primer is not needed on most surfaces. However, if a smooth or slick surface and/or painting a lighter color, test a spot first to check adhesion. If a primer is needed MudPaint is compatible with water based primers, cover stain and KILZ.
