Peel away on pitted tile

Anyone out there able to help with this Peel Away problem? My entire fireplace surround and mantle is made of pitted green tile. Lots of detail and relief. A previous owner painted it white. Off and on I've tried a variety of stripping products until the only paint left clinging is in pits or on underside surfaces. I tried a test area with Peel Away, and while the stripper action seems to work, the "peel away" factors certainly did not. The texture of the product barely changed at all and I now have softened paint in my pile pits. Picking it out is not significantly easier than before. Did I not leave the product on long enough, perhaps? I went with about 20 hours since I have so little actual paint. Is the lack of paint on so much of the surface the culprit? I'm a bit lost, but well invested in Peel Away if I can figure out how to make it work for me. Jane
