Maybe add something to the wax that a xenon light can pick up and nothing else. I dunno, maybe I'm watching too many CSI shows!!

    Now we're talking....... maybe something that would show it's self when wearing a special pair of classes. I know that sounds kind of cheesy, but wouldn’t that be cool?

      If you mix all the colors of light, what do you end up with? White light. But if you mix all the colors of paint what color do you end up with? Black paint. This is the primary difference. With light, you are mixing wavelengths together, adding them up to some color. With paint, you are removing colors. For instance, red paint absorbs all wavelengths except for red. And if you have green paint, it will absorb all wavelengths except for green. So, mixing them together, you will absorb all wavelengths.
