I just recently moved into a older home in which the previous owners painted the original ceramic tile in the bathroom, they did a horrible job and it is thick in places and runny in others, my question is how to remove the paint from the tile without ruining it because it is a really nice beige color.
I would expect a heat gun and some tedious scraping would take care of the tile itself, but I don't know how on earth you can get the paint out of the grout. I expect a re-grouting would be in order here.
Unfortunately, if they did the job even partly properly, it will not leave you with a nice surface, even if you could get the paint off w/o using abrasives
Their is also the potential problem that a huge proportion of tile paintings were as a 'cheap/quick cover up" of another problem, so removing the paint could expose another unknown problem
Especially if it was the home sellers that did the tile painting
I would recommend doing what the tile painter should have done, and have it retiled
