Default HV paint/"dope"

Hey guys,

I was just wondering if anyone knows a source of that HV paint or "dope" for insulating tube socket terminals,etc. inside of equipment ?

It seems like I've seen 2 versions,A black rubbery like stuff,and a thinner red paint type stuff.
(I've heard ladies Nail Polish works well also,but i'm not sure if I trust it?)

I've got a tube amp project with +600V and -590V supplies,and I want to _make sure_ everything is well insulated,etc.

Also I have to "dope" the octal socket pins,to prevent them from arcing over.

I just can't seem to find the stuff?!
