- Once your design is complete, bake the ceramic piece according to the manufacturer’s instructions to set the paint
HOW TO PAINT ON CERAMICS
Can You Paint Over Already Painted Ceramics?
There are a few things you need to take into consideration before painting over already painted ceramics. The type of paint that was originally used on the ceramic piece is the most important factor. If the original paint is not compatible with the new paint you are using, the new paint will not adhere well and could start to peel.
You also need to make sure that the surface of the ceramic is clean and free of any oils or dirt that could prevent the new paint from adhering. Once you have taken these factors into consideration, you can start painting!
