Sealing a ceramic tile

Have been working with ceramic tile and trying to seal the ink. What had been occurring was that even though it was suppose to be a clear finish, it looked more opaque. After talking with my daughter, who suggested I bake it, I did and then used the spray sealer. Only did it for about 5 minutes at between 400-425° The result was the best I have had so far. Not sure what tiles or sealers this will work with  but am pleased with the results. Think it will make a good coaster.

4" x 4" Agora Noce tile. Used 01 micron pen. 3 light coats of Rust-oleum Painter's Touch spray, matte clear finish. 


  1. Looks great! Thanks for posting about sealing ceramic tile.

  2. Thanks for the tip. I've noticed when I tried to do a sealing, it always looked wet, which was OK. I'll have to try this out on our new kitchen. We put ceramic tile in our Vancouver kitchen.
