I used a plastic glow-in-the-dark shoelace that I cut into small dots.
It worked great. The glow only lasted a few minutes so I never got an
overexposure no matter how long I had to leave my filters to expose. They
don't work for phosphoimagers however.
Some cheap kids stickers work nice too but they are not reusable.
