Welcome to the forum ls. Can you give a little more detail about what you're trying to do? Do you mean marble backsplash?

You can slap a coat of paint on just about anything. The question is: Will it last? Keep in mind most tile; ceramic, porcelain, stone, or otherwise is chosen because stuff wont stick to it. This includes paint. There are ways to make it stick a little bit better, but it would be a very delicate surface, prone to scratching at best.

Bullseye 123 primer will adhere to almost anything. I've over sprayed onto glass while spraying some walls and trim, for the first 2-3 days it will strip off with a razor but on the 4th day it's like cement. As long as the surface is CLEAN (no soap film or such) the Bullseye will stick.

You would have to check with your paint store...not big boxs...to find a paint that will stand up to the water and steam. Maybe a paint for swimming pools. I had to paint a water slide for a pool and the paint I used was from Glidden (DuLux) and it was a 2 part paint. Only comes in gallons and my cost was almost $100/ gal. Maybe a good quality acrylic would work...

A regular architectural paint will not hold up to constant moisture. You would have to use some type of epoxy. Rustoleum also has some special use paints for this type of application.

Not to dog on you too much, but, why would you want to paint beautiful stone like MARBLE?
