Just check out the blu-ray forum and the experiments and mods forum. You'll find it all in there!

This would be the best diode to use (PHR-803T), and this is about the best price going right now: http://www.laserpointerforums.com/fo...1214024578/0#0
Ideally this would be the driver I would recommend, (the Flex-Drive), you could do it cheaper, but not better or easier: http://www.laserpointerforums.com/fo...1209418066/0#0
Use a module, like this one: http://www.hightechdealz.com/index.p...;products_id=9
Select a host that uses 1-2 lithium batteries, Or a project-box, *stuff everything inside, and prestos! ;D (the last part will take a little research for you, but the Flex-Drive makes everything so much easier).
There are also quite a few BRs for sale for reasonable prices.
BTW, I have heard that your local home improvment store carries GITD paint by the gallon. It will not glow as bright as the stuff you can buy at the "Glo-powder" sites, but like Hemlock Mike says, you probably don't want it to glow for long.
Good luck on your project, keep us posted
DH

I made a tutorial on how to make a blu-ray, here is the video link> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVugSGldXZ8 You can get one of the PHR-803T sleds in one of the GBs for cheaper than in the link, and you can get a 100mA driver from http://rkcstr.googlepages.com/lpf for cheaper than in the video.

Gooey, would your argon not make GITD glow ? It has a violet line does it not , test it out and see what you get, if it doesnt work with the lines combined, use a beam splitter to separate the violet line tell me how you get on !

Yup it does make stuff glow, but no where near as good as the blu-ray does. The only lines that make stuff glow in teh argon are probably 457nm and 476nm... maybe 488 too but even with all 6 lines combined it makes a tile glow a fraction of the amount that a 405 laser does.

I bough 8oz of the high-tech green paint they have and did a white poster 4'X3' with the stuff and use my UV flashlight for dx to write on it and it does last quite a while but when you turn the lights on it basically erases it all and you just have to wait 5min to draw again.... but man when I turn my lights out to go to bed it lights up my whole room like 3 night lights put together : ) its sweet plus with the paint you can do stuff you cant do with tiles such at paint the tip of your ceiling fan :P
