I have a laser which I have been using to engrave designs into big store bought ceramic tiles. Up to this point I have been color filling them with rub-n-buff or I have painted them and engraved off all the paint except the design itself. Sometimes I mask the tiles and laser thru the mask and then paint and remove the mask after painting. I also have a sand blaster which I sometimes use to etch the tiles deeper than the laser can do. I have a kiln ordered that will fire cone 10. I would like to color the engravings and fire them in the kiln so the completed tiles can be set using sanded grout. i.e. more durability than with the process I now use. Being brand new to this adventure with a kiln, I could use all the advice and recommendations you may wish to provide. The laser takes the factory glaze off and leaves a so I am unclear as to which type glaze I should use and would china paints and/or india ink work? The picture attached is close up of one of the tiles that has been engraved with the laser.
