Add something a little stickier to the mix like shellac or water soluble glue. Or you can do the wet down then spraypaint method might yield good results? Are they those melamine formed tile style walls?

I would test out wet down and spay paint method in a hidden corner first. I think it should work out great. It might be a good idea to give it a flat clear coat when you are finished as well.
