How to convert RGB colors into CMYK (real paint colors)?

How can I convert an RGB color into a real life color?If I mix equal amounts of red, green and blue paint together in real life, I will never achieve a white color, in the way you do when setting the maximum values for them in RGB (#FFF), and I'd be hard pressed to get an exact shade of grey. Looking at an RGB code, how can I know what proportions to mix the colors in to get the same with real paint?Is RGB to CMYK conversion the answer?To put it another way:**How can I mix real paint colors together to achieve the same color that I've got on my screen in RGB?**
