Is it possible to add a translucent stain to kitchen back-splash tiles? They are not high gloss tiles, and I only want to add a gray tint in varying amounts to random tiles to add interest. Any help would be appreciated.

No… the stain will not work… stain needs to be absorbed into a surface to work… you could use paint (acrylic), slightly diluted with alcohol to the desired opaqueness and it might give you the desired effect…
