In the US, luminous paint is widely available at crafts stores which
stock fabric-painting supplies. The nozzle on the bottle can be trimmed
to suit your preferences.
I got my ~2oz bottle for $1.99 more than a year ago, and there's
tons left. I paint the date onto my dried sequencing gels near
the top -- instant orientation and ID for each film. I also put dabs
of the paint on my timer and the safe-light switches, both of which
were difficult to find in the darkroom. If the paint bottle is left out in
room lighting, the paint is always charged.
