Repainting Ceramic Cake Topper

I few months ago I purchased ceramic Love Birds for our cake topper from Etsy. I thought the color I picked was close to Tiffany Blue (our accent color) but today when I was going through our things I realized it is much more green than Tiffany Blue. I want to try to paint over it with a more true Tiffany Blue/Robins Egg Blue color. Any suggestions on how to even do this? I'm not much of a DIY'er so I'm not sure where to start. Below is the link to where I bought them if it helps.

We our wedding was originally planned for 10.10.2020 but we postponed to 10.02.2021 - so I have to try to fix the color and if I totally screw it up, I can purchase something else.


Thanks!

    We have the same original wedding date and postponed date (even though we’re now changing it to 10/30/21 ).


    As for the cake topper, will it sit directly onto your cake or have some type of barrier that it sits on top of? That would be my first concern if you did any painting, to make sure it’s not toxic. But if your baker can place the lovebirds on top of something, you could probably spray paint them. But you’ll lose some of that shine unless you finish it with a spray lacquer.

    How funny is that! I see that you are living in San Diego, getting married in Vegas. I'm from San Diego, living and getting married in Vegas! LOL

    The fact that what I could do could possible be toxic is what I'm afraid of! I've been googling different paints and fishing coats that are non-toxic/food safe.

    Wow! What a coincidence.... and congrats!!! Yeah, the toxicity is the only issue you might run into.

    Ceramics aren't exactly easy to repaint. Most ceramic paints require curing in a kiln and are not safe to be used with food. You could paint it with something else (that you know to be food safe), but you will lose the look of the ceramic paint.

    Have you talked to the seller about an exchange?

    That’s a good point. I didn’t think of the actual process. Ill ask the seller if there is anything that can be done.
