Natural elements are a type of element in Powder Game and Powder Game 2. Natural elements can be created simply by using one of the element buttons in the menu. There are 34 natural elements in Powder Game as of version 9.1, and 40 natural elements on Powder Game 2 as of version 8.0.
Artificial elements are a type of element in Powder Game and Powder Game 2.
Artificial elements can not be created by using on of the buttons on the menu, the player has to create them. This makes them all creatable elements.
There are only four artificial elements:
- "Wood" (also known as "Tree")
- "Steam" (also known as "Suds")
- "Seawater" (also known as "Salt Water" or "Saline Water")
- Created by adding salt to water.
The artificial elements don't have official names, but have common nicknames due to their properties, except seawater, which was mentioned in the Powder Game instructions.
There is no practical difference between the two types of elements, other than how they are created.
