Check out STX primer. My local mom & pop hardware store carries it. They have a sample of the primer painted on glossy 4x4 tile. I took my nail to it and couldn't scratch the primer off. I've never used it, so I don't have the details on the primer. I'm not sure if it's oil or waterbased. Google it. I'm sure something will come up.

I've been checking into Rustoleum's Specialty Countertop Paint. It's formulated for laminate countertops, so I'm sure it will work on laminated backsplashes too. The box says it can be tinted to 16 different colors. You can see the colors on top of the box & online, but they may be hard to judge. They'll send you up to 3 color samples. I've seen it at both Lowe's and Home Depot in section where they carry the spray paint. Good luck!
