Sadly, ABS does not NOT come in one color. Some is whiter than others. Layers of paint over layers of paint tend to look shoddy. I would slowly and carefully use paint thinner of the same make as the paint you used and gently remove it little by little. Paint thinners in general will not harm the ABS. Just go slow.

Halfords paint is great. Plastikote is crap. I learned that lesson when I painted my biker scout helmet.

The best colour to get is 'appliance white'.

Seriously, don't paint white over black. It's a bad idea even if it does work. Get the black paint off with sanding paper. Go with lower grit (more coarse) paper and then higher grit (finer) if it's too much work to only use fine sanding paper.

 

And be careful. Take your time with it. I've re-done my vocoder 2 times before and both times I used fine grade sanding paper.
