How to make clay.


How to make clay.

To make clay, you need some basic ingredients like clay, water and some tools to help you mix and prepare the clay properly. Here I will tell you the basic method of making clay: 



 1.  Soil: Making clay requires some kind of nutritious soil. You can buy potting soil at any nursery or potting soil store. You can also search in pond. Take dry soil. 

 2. Water: Water is needed to make soil. 

 1. step: selection of soil. 

 1. First of all, you need to choose a good quality clay soil. There should be no attachments. 

 2. step: make the soil clear and clean. 

 1. Clean the soil thoroughly so that no trash or debris remains on the soil. 

 3. step: soaking the soil. 

Keep the soil soaked in water. You can soak it for a day or longer to properly moisten the soil. 

4. step: mix the soil. 

Place the soaked soil in a clean container and mix thoroughly with water. This should give a homogeneous solution. 


5. step: the solution cooled slightly. 

 1. Let the solution stand for a while so that excess water separates and the solution cools down a bit. 

 This is a way to make your own clay in basic form. But remember that the quality and use of clay depends on your intended use, such as what kind of art you want to make (ceramics, sculpture, etc.). In addition, the clay can be further processed and prepared to achieve special properties. 

 The method and ingredients used to make clay can vary from place to place, so it is best to consult a local or pottery expert when making clay for a specific project.
