Step 1: Mix Some Water and Soil to Make Mud

Don't add too much water

Step 2: Spread the Mud and Slice Out Mini Bricks

use a knife or steel scale to cut out the brick.I made the play button by spreading the mud and the slicing away

the edges to make a rectangle then I made the triangle by scraping it with the edge of the stell scale

Step 3: DO NOT Follow This Step

I was in a bit hurry so I used my methane torch to dry the bricks which broke them up because the upper surface dried up too fast. let the bricks dry naturally in the sun.

Step 4: Place the Bricks in the Furnace

carefully place the bricks in the furnace and turn it on. Wait for about 30 minutes or more if needed.

You'll be done when the bricks become red hot like molten iron. let the bricks cool down naturally then take them out.

Step 5: I MADE IT MY SELF

BRICKS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED this concept can also be used to bake pottery as well, I'll be doing that soon so make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel

does the soil you use need to be a certain percentage of clay? I'm just thinking topsoil or something rich in organic matter isn't going to work.

just simple soil.when you mix water with it , it becomes muddy that kind of soil.

bricks are ceramic, baked clay. Not sure if that's what you made.

Interesting. You should post some examples of things that you can make with your diy bricks.
