Armstrong Tegular edge not white, what to do


I have Armstrong 271 (I think) tegular panels that are 2x2, the edge you cut and cut back to create the reveal is not white, it is grey... so if you see where the cute was made against a wall it shows as grey..

what do you do about this? any kind of paint or anything that matches to make it all white?

From Armstrong's install manual:

Armstrong Touch-up Paint #5761. One 32 oz. bottle of touch-up paint will coat 200-250 lineal feet of tegular edge on Ultima (mineral fiber board).

Cuts made against a wall are not usually painted since they can't be seen.

Here's a link:

scribe cuts on a reveal tile are never painted. If you are that concerned about them, you can raise your grid 3/8'' and get small blocksto sit on your wall mold to raise your t's so you do not need to scribe your tiles.
