What is the trick to painting the tiles? When I've done the second coat, parts of the tiles keep peeling off and exposing the white tile.

Hi Chelsea! Depending on the tiles you use, some of them are more "shiny" than others because they have a coating with is slick - obviously you've discovered this. I would either 1) glob on the paint or 2) use a spray primer before applying the paint (matte) to get it to stick.

I realize this is an extra step/purchase so perhaps just try globbing. :D
