you can still get them but they are extremely rare as you can have masonary paint mixed on a colour mixing machine nowadays to almost any colour under the sun
I never ever thought that they were any good. I always thought that the paint never really was mixed properly. When you look, "as said above" at mixing machines nowadays is there even a need for them?

yeahbthis is true......but i already have the white paint and need to make it deep green!

I think you'll be wasting your money on dye as you probably wont get a uniform colour throughout.
