Wood Dye?

In good old days one could go and buy a little paper bag with dye in it. Not any more? I'm searching and searching the net but nothing turns up.
Do you know a source of wood dye?

Automatic ignitor installation

Would it be possible to retrofit a modern ignitor to an older always-on-pilot-light system? I have in mind my gas furnace in the attic.
