I bought a ceramic soap dispenser from the store that I want to paint. I've tried using acrylics, outdoor acrylics, and enamel paints but they all scratch off, even after using polyurethane to try to seal it. I also tried sanding it with rough sandpaper but it barely scratched the surface. Can anyone help me figure out what to use or how to prepare the surface? I need to get it done by Sunday and I'm completely lost. Thanks for your time!

I dont have much experience with painting pots but sometimes I write on the surface of my pieces with these Pebeo pens - http://www.artifolk.co.uk/catalog/products/craft_paint/pebeo_porcelaine_150_marker_pens.htm

They also make paint as well but I dont know what its like, the markers are really useful though!

Thanks for your help! I have those and they work better than most other things I've tried but still kind of scratch off. They are what I ended up using though. Thanks again!

did you try spraying a clear layer of enamel (?)/lacquer on top of the paint so it can't chip?
