tracing an oil, or other fluid leak

For hard to find oil seeps I have heard of of "dusting" the engine with baby powder or some other white powder to trace a sneaky oil leak.

Do any of you know of an aerosol spray product (automotive or not) that would work in a similar fashion? It would need to spray on, get hard enough to stay on even with wind from the fan and road wind, but not too hard that it would be hard to wash off.
