Thanks for the reply. It doesn't have to be dark. I'm just looking for 
something that isn't white. Texblast would be fine. Anything resembling 
a natural color that isn't very light. This is proving to be way more 
difficult than I imagined. If and when I do find it I will definitely 
post it here so that others can find it.
