A few years back my old boss gave me a cookie jar as a Christmas gift.  It's cute, but not really my style.  I'm in the process of buying a new house and I want to accessorize my kitchen with various red objects.  My question, I guess, is how should I repaint the jar?  It's already glazed and fired, and regular acrylic or latex paint works for a short while but then it just peels off.  Anyone know if I can use spraypaint???  I'd love to get a nice high-gloss paint.  What kind should I use???

Thanks ahead of time for your input!

Do you have access to a ceramic shop (and/or kiln??)  Maybe they can try to fire off the glaze or maybe you can paint over it and have it refired?

I bet that Krylon fusion spray paint that is meant for plastic would work. I would maybe test it out on an old coffee mug or something first. I would be worried about paint chips in my cookies, but if you a really only going to use it for decorative purposes, I bet it would work.

Unfortunately I don't have access to a ceramic shop to have it refired.  I thought about that, but it's not really an option for me.  It's too bad, really, I'd love to try my hand at ceramics.

Krylon paint, though, that might work.  I'm not using the jar for cookies, so storing food in it isn't a concern.  My husband and I use it for things like spare change...you know, like a rainy day fund.  I came pretty close to just ditching it completely, but the shape of the jar is really cool.  I think I might try the Krylon option.

Thanks!!!

There are also Pebeo ceramic paints which are used on glazed ceramics.
