Need to touch up the paint on the cylinder heads

Just had my cylinder heads reconditioned and there are a few places where the paint is coming off mostly around the exhaust ports. I don't really need to paint the complete head I just need to do some touch up. Would the HD engine paint work well with the touch up or should I just use high temp paint such as barbeque grill paint?

I have the HD engine paint I just don't know on how heat resistant it is. The rear cylinder head by the exhaust port is the only place the paint is coming off which makes sense because that is the hottest area of the engine.

The engine brightener paint works and heat resistant. I have also used VHT engine paint for touch ups-- close to cylinder heads but usually for when my pipes hit the ground. Not 100% match but you really have to look.
