A stocking (experiment with a few, as minor density differences each produce a
unique effect) placed (stretched and secured to the cell box cover - with some
inventive taping) above the lens at the top of the gate (between the film &
pickup's) works quite well.  The effect is usually quite apparent,
so you should anticipate experimenting with different degrees of stretch of the
stocking as well.

Using a black stocking aids in producing a luminescent effect; 'not sure what
you'd get with a white stocking, or other colors for that matter.
