That is an acrylic flat white with India ink/alcohol on plastic and wood. I just used the Kilz/Rit combo on the new project because I never had that combo before. Any flat white and stain will work but will give a different look.
The old Higgins India Ink was the best, the new is some synthetic blend and doesn't have a brown base.
