All Tusayan Whiteware types have a vegetal paint (vegetal paint often looks soft or watery so the edges are not as sharp as mineral paint) and are supposed to have light paste. All Little Colorado Whiteware types have vegetal paint and are supposed to have a dark paste. Mesa Verde Whiteware types may have mineral or vegetal paint. See article titled General Pottery Descriptions.
