Soft clay detail

Soft clay is used in the Crafting, Construction, and Magic skills, to make pottery, furniture, tablets, and urns. Money can be made by buying clay and making soft clay for a profit of roughly 94.

Soft clay can be created by using water on clay, awarding the player with 1 Crafting experience. This is done with a bucket of water or directly from a water source. Players can also use Humidify from the Lunar Magics spellbook to turn an entire inventory of clay into soft clay at once (no Crafting experience will be awarded). To create pottery, soft clay must be used on a potter's wheel and then fired in a pottery oven. The exceptions are clay rings and clay skulls which are made directly in the inventory. In addition, clay skulls do not need firing in a pottery oven.

With a bracelet of clay equipped, players can mine soft clay directly, without having to add water. The bracelet crumbles to dust after 28 soft clay are mined. Also, when mining clay the bracelets affect the extra clay gained from Varrock armour, but do not remove extra charges from the bracelet. This means one bracelet can actually be used to acquire more than 28 soft clay.

Players can mine clay at the Crafting Guild and use the clay with the sink in the Guild to make soft clay. Using the sink with the clay will automatically turn your entire inventory of clay into soft clay or, alternatively, have two buckets of water in inventory rather than a sink. This can then be formed and fired all within the Guild. This is a rapid way to make an inventory of urns, which can then be runed and banked at the deposit box located inside the guild or the bank chest at the Clan Camp, east of the guild.

Players are required to make soft clay in Draynor Village for the Lumbridge and Draynor Tasks.

Soft clay is needed to repair the broken clay golem in The Golem quest.

Some methods of quickly collecting soft clay are as follows: Mine at Rimmington Mine, wet the clay at the well just to the south. Deposit in the Customs Locker (further south, needs Rocking Out quest). In the absence of the quest, wielding a Clan Vexillum and equipping a Ring of Kinship will allow for quick teleports and banking.

Another method is using Burthorpe's mine and using the well just outside it, banking near the Warrior Guild chest.

Another method to collect soft clay is to mine soft clay at the soft clay mining site at the Ithell Clan area in Prifddinas after completion of Plague's End, or by pickpocketing Ithell workers.
