	Crayola makes glow-in-the-dark fabric paint, and so do many other
companies.  Available at most arts and crafts stores, at least the
downscale ones. (Charrette didn't have it, presumably because it's not
frou-frou enough for them.)  Has a narrow tip for relatively fine
application, and dries to a plasticky substance which "charges up" when
exposed to light, so that you can put a few dots on a piece of tape and
use it again and again and again--one bottle costs a couple bucks, at
most, and lasts effectively forever.
	Just say "No!" to ridiculously overpriced scientific supplies.
