What paint finish most closely resembles LDPE?

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

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?


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:
