There are special paints directed at painting over Kitchen tiles. You need to look/talk to your favourite DIY store. The instructions will be on the time.

Cleanliness is the word for getting the paint to stick - I would wash down with sugar soap (not sugar or soap but that's the name) more than once to get all grease off the tiles & then wipe over with white spirits.

As for tools - I have used a small roller in the past. Seems to work with a 1 inch paint brush to do the edges.

You could cover the tiles with some sheet material (hard board or masonite) and paint that to give a smooth surface.
