Things to Bear Before Opting Hand Painted Tiles Service – Ideas from Ceramic-Concepts

by Michael Martinez Hand Painted Tiles

Ceramic tile is a construction material made from and molded into tiles. Glazed ceramic tiles are used on floors, countertops, walls, and showers.

Painting tiles need some special preparation. The glazed ceramic tiles have shiny surfaces that don't bond well with the paint, so to stick the pain in the surfaces; it is important to sand and scuffs the surfaces.

Here are some things to consider before working with Hand Painted Tiles:

1. Gather Materials and Tools

To pain ceramic Spanish Tiles, the below-mentioned tools are required:

·         Top-quality tinted acrylic paint primer.

·         Top-quality urethane.

·         The top-quality acrylic semi-gloss interior is paint.

·         TSP or another heavy-duty cleaner.

·         Heavy-duty rubber gloves.

·         Paintbrush to cut in around edges.

·         Paint roller tray.

·         Paint roller with high-quality, lint-free, and short-nap roller cover.

·         An artist's brush to paint the grout lines.

2. Choose a Paint Color and Type

Paint of any color can be used on ceramic tile, and the colors can also be custom-matched with the painted surfaces and decorative elements in the room.

3. Preparation

If you want to get a good painting ceramic tile, then you should be well prepared for it. Repair the cracks and imperfections, if any, with the grout.

a.     Use 220-grit sandpaper, properly sand the surfaces of the tile to remove gloss, and allow the surface to stick a coat of paint.

b.    Wipe off all the dry sanding dust and then clean it properly.

c.     Useable heavy-duty solution of trisodium phosphate (TSP) to clean the tile.

d.    Remove all the residue of TSP solution by rinsing several times.

e.    Dry the tile completely, and then remove all the dirt and residue with denatured alcohol.

4. Prime the Surfaces

Apply a thin layer of a primer coat on Spanish Tiles, and take care of bumps and thick spots.

a.     Begin your work by fixing the edges; use a paintbrush to cut the primer coat in the edges of baseboards, walls, cabinets, ceilings, and appliances.

b.    Use a short-nap roller to apply a thin coat of primer over the surfaces, and do it softly. Apply the paint roller in a direction.

c.     Keep it for few hours to dry the first primer coat.

d.    If the first primer coat becomes completely dry, fix the edges by using a paintbrush and then apply the second coat.

e.    Let the second coat of primer dry, and leave it for a night. Suppose there is any change in the paint line on the surface, on the next day. Then applying sand over the smooth area will wipe out the dust.

5. Apply Paint

Make the paint thin in order to apply it in thin coats.

a.     Use a paintbrush to cut the edges of the first coat of paint.

b.    Use a roller to apply a thin layer coat of finish paint, and then let it dry.

c.     When the field coat is dry, repeat the steps to apply a second coat of paint with a roller.

d.    When it becomes dry, check out the surface. Apply a third coat if necessary.

e.    Paint the grout line carefully with paintbrush to match the color. Let it dry then.

f.      Apply a layer of top-quality urethane finish once your paint becomes dry.

g.    Do not touch or use the surface for about two weeks so that it becomes hard.
