TLDRThis video provides a step-by-step guide on how to recycle and reuse dry clay. The presenter advises using dry clay as it dissolves quickly in water, and recommends having a basin of water and a plaster disc handy. The process involves breaking down the dry clay into pieces, soaking it in water for a few days, and then transferring the liquid mixture into a bottle, creating a hole for the thinner portion. The presenter encourages viewers to ask questions in the comments if anything is unclear and promises to address any issues with the video's visibility.

Q & A

  • What is the recommended state of clay for recycling?

    -The recommended state of clay for recycling is dry. Dry clay is much simpler to work with because it dissolves very quickly when in contact with water.

  • What materials are needed for recycling clay?

    -The materials needed for recycling clay are a basin of water, dry clay, and a gypsum disc (or a scalpel if you don't know how to make gypsum discs).

  • How do you prepare the dry clay for recycling?

    -The dry clay should be broken into pieces, not too small, using a hammer, saw, or any other tool you prefer. These pieces should then be immersed in the basin of water.

  • How long should the clay pieces be left in the water?

    -The clay pieces should be left in the water for at least one day, but can be left for up to two or three days. There is no specific rule for the duration.

  • What should be done with the water after soaking the clay?

    -The water used for soaking the clay should not be poured down the sink. Instead, it should be collected and reused, as demonstrated in the video.

  • What is the purpose of the gypsum disc?

    -The gypsum disc is used for drying the clay after it has been reconstituted from the soaked pieces.

  • How can the liquid portion of the soaked clay be separated?

    -To separate the liquid portion of the soaked clay, you can create a hole in the gypsum disc and pour the more liquid part of the clay through it.

  • What should viewers do if they have additional questions or need clarification?

    -If viewers have additional questions or need clarification, they are advised to leave a comment below the video, and the creator will address any unclear or unseen aspects.

  • What is the overall purpose of the video?

    -The overall purpose of the video is to provide a step-by-step guide on how to recycle and reuse clay, particularly dry clay, by soaking it in water and then reconstituting it for further use.

  • Is there any additional information or advice provided in the video?

    -No additional information or advice is explicitly mentioned in the provided transcript.



🧱 Recycling Clay with Dry Method

The speaker recommends recycling clay using the dry method as it is easier. This involves breaking dry clay into pieces, soaking them in water for a few days, and then removing the excess water. The remaining clay slurry can then be used for projects. A plaster disk is also suggested as a tool for drying clay projects.




To recycle, referring to the process of reusing materials or objects for a new purpose. In the context of the video, it refers to the process of rehydrating and reusing dry clay. The script mentions recycling dry clay as an easier method compared to working with wet clay.


Clay, a natural material composed of fine-grained minerals that becomes malleable when mixed with water. It is the primary material used in pottery and ceramics. The video explains the process of recycling dry clay by rehydrating it for reuse.


Dry, referring to the state of the clay being completely dehydrated and hardened. The video recommends using dry clay for recycling as it is easier to rehydrate compared to wet clay. Dry clay needs to be soaked in water before it can be worked with again.


A basin or small container used to hold water for soaking the dry clay pieces. The video instructs the viewer to place the dry clay pieces in a basin filled with water to rehydrate them over a period of days.

💡Disco di gesso

A gypsum or plaster disk, which is a tool used to absorb excess moisture from clay. The video suggests having a gypsum disk ready for drying the rehydrated clay after recycling.


Broken or split into pieces, referring to the process of breaking the dry clay into smaller chunks before soaking it in water. The video demonstrates using a hammer or a small saw to break the dry clay into manageable pieces for rehydration.


Immersed or submerged, describing the action of placing the dry clay pieces into the water basin for soaking. The video instructs the viewer to immerse the clay pieces in water for one to three days to allow them to rehydrate properly.


To throw away or discard, referring to the used water from soaking the clay. The video advises against pouring the used water down the sink, suggesting that it should be kept instead as it may still contain useful clay particles.


A hole or opening, which the video demonstrates creating in the center of the gypsum disk. This hole allows the viewer to place the more liquid portion of the rehydrated clay mixture inside the disk for drying and absorption of excess moisture.


Liquid or more fluid state of the rehydrated clay mixture. The video shows how to pour the more liquid portion of the clay into the hole in the gypsum disk, which helps to absorb excess moisture and achieve the desired consistency for working with the recycled clay.


Recycling clay is best done with dry clay, as it dissolves very quickly when in contact with water.

You need a basin with water, dry clay, and a plaster disc (or an alternative if you don't know how to make one).

Break the dry clay into pieces using a hammer or saw.

Immerse the clay pieces in a basin of water and let it soak for 1-3 days.

Remove excess water from the soaked clay, but don't pour it down the drain.

Transfer the soaked clay to a plaster disc, creating a hole in the center for the more liquid part.

Invite viewers to ask questions in the comments if anything is unclear or not visible in the video.



per riciclare è innanzitutto vi


consiglio di farlo con l'argilla secca


con l'agi argine bagnata potete comunque


farlo però con l'argilla secca è molto


più semplice perché a contatto con


l'acqua si scioglie velocissimamente


quindi dovete avere una bacinella con


l'acqua l'argilla secca è un disco di


gesso se non sapete farli di scaligero


magari un altro video vi faccio vedere


come si fa è molto semplice ed è un


oggetto che vi servirà molto per


asciugare le argille quindi vediamo un


passo passo come si fa allora


innanzitutto l'argilla vap è stata


quindi va spaccata con l'aiuto di un


martello oppure quello che volete io a


volte utilizzo anche il seghetto e la


spaccata in pezzi non troppo piccoli non


c'è bisogno e poi ma immersa in una


bacinella quell acqua al giorno dopo


anche due giorni dopo anche tre giorni




c'è una regola per questo questo


alimenterà proprio una bottiglia


consiglio innanzitutto di togliere




questa ecco qua non la potete giù per


rubinetto a parte che cela missino


buttano niente giù dal rubinetto la


tenete e vediamo come possiamo usarla


dopodiché trasferite questa bottiglia e


questo gesto molto spesso io crea una


specie di buco dentro in modo da poter


metterli la parte più liquida




bene ragazzi questo è tutto se avete


qualche domanda scrivetemi giù nei


commenti e comunque se c'è qualcosa che


non è chiaro oppure se non si vede bene


qualcosa nel video allora scrivete le


facciamo la mia ciao
