Natty tamas are made of the same wood as their paint, and are called Natural. Natty kendamas have slippery surfaces so it is more difficult to do tricks. However, they also have an aesthetic quality due to their natural wood grain. Sticky paint is the most widely used Tama paint. It provides maximum grip for tricks such as Lighthouses and Lunars. Rubber paint is the final option. It has a similar grip to Sticky paint but feels more like rubber or silk. Rubber paint could be described as the middle ground between Sticky and Natty.
