It is possible but it is unlikely it will look like much for long. There are epoxy kits but same comment holds and you are better off saving your money for new tile.

I remembered this came up recently. Here are the posts.

Sdsester is once again correct. I say this all the the history of bad ideas, painting tile ranks right up there. Can it be done? Sure. But, in the end, you end up with tile that looks like it's been painted........not a good look at all in any era of decorating.

Epoxy only- regular primer and paint will not hold up at all.
