Plastering onto ceramic tiles?

Postby roles86 » Sun Mar 25, 2007 7:45 pm

Hello all, any help advice appreciated. Is it possible to plaster over existing ceramic tiles. It would save me a lot of effort and time if this is possible.

Bad idea. You can certaily plaster onto the tiles and you may give yourself a little more life expectancy by painting the tiles with PVA first (see the project on PVA) but ceramic is a really bad surface to get proper adhesion to and it will not be long before plaster starts to crack.
