    I am not an artist but rather am interested to hear if anyone has
    had success permanantly marking individual flies with paint or
    some other substance.  My goal is ultimately study age-structure
    in laboratory populations.  My initial tests with water soluble
    acrylic paint have failed because the paints wear off on many
    flies within a week.
    Thanks for your help
