Re-glazing Tile

Every once in awhile I hear something about re-glazing ceramic tile, but I never hear what the products are that are out there. I hate the color of the tile in our bathroom-it was here when we bought the house. I would love to strip off the glaze and re paint in a colbalt blue and then re-seal the tiles.
Does anyone know anything about this process, and is it the sort of thing I can do myself?
Thanks for any info/suggestions you have!

I know that there are products out there to paint tiles, you have to use an agent that allows the paint to adhere and of course a sealer but it is really not reglazing since the glazes are fired on. You can aldo "add" grout lines as well. It is not a hard project from what I saw, just time consuming, I think after you apply the first part you must wait overnight to paint them and then overnight to glaze them and then another night after the seal....hope you have a second bathroom.
Good luck.
I saw this done on the PBS show Handy Ma'mam, with Beverly DiJulio, she does a great show but I think in my area it is on at like 1am so I tape it.
I am sure they must have a web site.

His will be done!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that would like a solution to the tile problem! One solution I've seen is where people spray a type of ceramic "paint" onto bathroom tile floors and walls. While this works very well on sinks and tubs (I've had it done), I don't recommend it on walls and floors as it wears and chips away and doesn't look professional at all. I've never seen the three part process mentioned earlier, I'd like to check that out. Good luck!
