What paint finish most closely resembles LDPE?
Hello

What paint finish most closely resembles smooth LDPE? (Low Density PolyEthylene)

Background:
I have 3D printed some prototypes for a plastic consumer product using 3D Printing using SLS of Nylon 12 material (Fine Polyamide PA 2200). Apparently sintered Nylon "sucks up" paint surprisingly well. However I need a paint whose finish has the mechanical properties of smooth LDPE. In particular I need a paint finish that is mechanically slippery with a similarly low coefficient of friction sot hat it will behave reasonably well just like LDPE. Color white if possible.

Any suggestions?

J


P.S. Although Nylon can be hard to print on, it seems that 3D printed sintered nylon in slightly porous and will suck up paint:
