Easier to buy it from a chemical supplier

Undoubtedly far cheaper too. Remember, the reason TiO2 is used is because relatively little of it is needed to create a bright white. That means there isn't going to be very much, by volume, in the paint even if you _could_ separate it out (which you probably can't, in any reasonable way). And paint isn't cheap . (I'm also seconding Lemonie's question about what design you're working from. I haven't heard of TiO2 as an ingredient in solar panels, so I'd like to hear more about this.)
