Where can I find a UV paint that will glow under blacklight, but not be visible in daylight?

I dont know the permanence of the application you are looking for but I have had some great results using the Blacklight Hairspray on plastic items as well as tombstones. Granted you may need to refresh after a day but for the money (99 cents) its a simple fix

I can verify that you can use TIDE liquid detergent and paint it on. It drys clear...well very near clear. And glows like the dickens. Plus, you already own some (I dont think it has to be TIDE...mine was)...and its cheap for no more than you need.

I cannot vouch for how long it will last. I just know it works wet and dry, and it will last for a reasonable amount of time (for me this means a week or so...maybe more if one tested it). I doubt it will last through even one rain.

Here is a photo of a test run I did with TIDE as it appears under blacklight:

Here is the same items, with TIDE on it....under normal light:

Depending on your surface, a yellow highlighter might work. In one of my rooms, I wrote all over the blue wallpaper using highlighter. In the normal light/dark it was not noticable, but turn on the blacklight and it glowed clearly.

I used the black light hair spray on a spider web 3 years ago and it still is showing great. It has not been out in the weather, so I'm not sure how the weather would affect it.

A couple years ago I bought Clear Neon. I got mine on eBay from Alan at Quantum Leap Unlimited.

I used the clear "color" brush-on with a foam brush to paint a quick sloppy pattern on my entry archway roof which was black lawn & garden tarp material seen here in my Blacklight Archway Construction pictures by bpesti - Photobucket.

Here's my archway [nomedia]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gozdZN_WAxU[/nomedia] that shows it also. I took that video after ToT so it doesn't show me actually applying any paint but it shows how much it glows.
