What is the closest white paint anyone has used for a TK?

Well that depends on what armor you have, there is quite a big difference in color from one maker to another depending on their local supply of ABS, comparing them together can look as different as stark white to cream.

 

Personally I eye color match the paint, I have an air brush so mix my own paint for touch ups.

I have a friend doing a R1 helmet. It’s funny cause he asked me what color I said ABS lol.

Most appear to use just a generic gloss white.

 

For my FOTK I used an automotive acrylic base white.

Many of us in the US use Rust-Oleum 2X Painter's Touch Gloss White for ROTK and FOTKs. OTTKs should only be painted as a last resort, as it is very difficult to match the white of your maker's ABS and (other than the helmet), it is not accurate anyways.
