What to paint white the pot edges of ceramic bathroom tiles?

Please what paint should I use, not on the glazed ceramic front of the new bathroom tiles but on the edges where they show brown porous? pot. I suppose it would need some sealing undercoat and then I would like possibly a gloss which would not be upset by steam or get mildew.

First question is why do you have edges showing?

Use tile trim round windows etc then you don't have to worry about it.

Hi

You could use plastic tile edging... but this is normally fitted on initial installation. However, it is normal to use grout, or a silicon sealant... this can be applied and smoothed off with a soap solution and profiled instrument such as a finger, piece of wood, or doweling ... or you could use a molded clear plastic grout profiler such as fugi applicator sold by Screwfix
