Single ingredient dry mixing

"The previous post shows a clay which was made in a very simple wet mix process. This example shows a single ingredient from a bag of dry clay that was simply mixed with ample water using a brick mason's mud pan and a shovel. Clay like this is about one third water, which makes a too wet and sloppy mixture, but it will stiffen over night. It came out a bit too soft so it is now curing up. This too is cost-effective. I'll get about 75 pounds of clay for $12."
