Glazed ceramic

Hi Cheryl. I don't know if you know anything about painted ceramics? But my question is can I paint something that's ceramic that's already been painted with glazing paint, another color in acrylic paint? Thanks Tammy Spalsbury

For slick surfaces, like glazed ceramics, you will need to use glass paints or enamel paints made for this purpose.

Painting on glazed ceramics
by: Lois

Just before the Christmas holidays, I was asked to paint names on 16 cups for party favors.

I debated (with myself) about what to use. I finally
settled on DecoArt Americana multi-surface Satin.
I cleaned the cups & wiped them with alcohol.
Then designed the names, so they all had the same lettering style and size. To position them on the cups at the same place; I made a template with a cut-out to fit the longest name; marked the center
of the cut-out and positioned each name on a cup.

After 4 days to cure, I put them in the oven and proceeded to "bake" them.(8 at a time)
When I removed them from the oven, the paint had become part of the glaze. Rubbing over the painted areas, I could not feel the paint. The color was bright and looked good.
The only prep that I used was to clean the cups with soap, dry and wipe down with alcohol.
It was a fun project.

Changing the colors on glazed ceramic
by: Tammy

I asked about the paint to use to change the color of the glazed ceramic. But I forgot to ask if there is anything I need to do to prepare the glazed paint before re-painting it. Tammy
