How do you hide old holes in ceramic tile?
Squeeze a small amount of caulk directly onto the drill holes. While wearing a rubber glove, dip your index finger in water and then wipe the caulk so that it fills the holes and makes a smooth transition to the surrounding tile. Allow the caulk to harden and then remove the tape.
Do you need a special drill bit for ceramic tile?
Standard drill bits don’t work on tile, but not to worry. Ceramic tile can be drilled with a carbide bit, while glass and porcelain call for a diamond-tipped bit.
Can you drill a hole in ceramic?
It’s possible to drill a hole in a ceramic pot with a regular drill bit. However, using a regular bit on unglazed ceramic is much easier. Glazed ceramic, which is what most store-bought pots are, will make it hard for the bit to “grab on” to the pot to start drilling the hole.
