What kind of paint can i use that is aquarium safe?

First of all i would like to say this is an awsome site. I got lots of idea from here on how to build my stand. Personally i think it turned out pretty good for my first handy JOB. I'm working on the canopy right now... and have read that it would be easier to use just white paint to reflect the light, instead of going with other reflector. I was just wondering what kind of paint should i use that will be aquarium safe for my fishes?

Thank you.

To paint my canopies always used an glossy white acrylic based paint, and had no problems.
