Little Alchemy 2: How To Make Clay [SOLVED]

For an element that can be crafted in a minimum of 4 steps, clay provides exceptional worth and value in Little Alchemy 2.

Clay is one of the first items you can create in Little Alchemy 2. This is because the raw elements you need to make it from scratch are easily accessible, considering you take the lighter route to craft clay. And since it’s a straightforward element, we can see the clay’s usefulness and how it’s the base ingredient to make many common to rare Final Items in Little Alchemy 2.

Key Takeaways
  • Clay belongs to the materials category, extensively used to make man-made and natural elements.
  • There are 7 different ways of crafting this element in Little Alchemy 2, each with varying difficulty and number of steps.
  • Many Final items in the game can only be crafted if you have clay in your inventory.
  • You’ll also discover new base elements in Little Alchemy 2 as you make clay and other elements with it step by step.

1. Mud And Stone

You’ll likely get your first clay piece with this recipe. Both Mud and Stone have little complexity, and you can easily make them with 1 or 2 combinations. To start, you can make Mud by simply mixing Water with Earth. These are included in your starting ingredients, so you should have no trouble making them.

On the other hand, you can make Stone in several ways. The most common and easiest method used by players is by doing the following combination:

  1. Earth + Fire = Lava
  2. Lava + Air = Stone

Another basic combination you make Stone with is by adding Earth to Pressure, which you make by mixing Air with itself.

2. Mud And Sand

Mud and Sand are other basic combinations to make clay in the game. We’ve already discussed that mixing Water with Earth will give you mud, and sand is just about as easy to make as Stone. Once you’ve made a stone via the above steps, just fuse it with Air, and you’ll have sand.

3. Stone/Sand And Mineral

These two halves of clay vastly differ in their difficulty in crafting. We already talked about the ease of making Stone by mixing Lava with Air and Sand by infusing Stone with Air. However, minerals require a lot of steps to develop, and they are split into different layers. Thankfully, most of the steps combine ingredients, so we don’t have to get too complex.

Our first move will be to create a universe, which is simple but extremely lengthy since you only need Earth for it.

To make a universe, we’ll be mixing the following ingredients:

  1. Earth + Earth = Land
  2. Land + Land = Continent
  3. Continent + Continent = Planet 
  4. Planet + Planet = Solar System
  5. Solar System + Solar System = Galaxy
  6. Galaxy + Galaxy = Galaxy Cluster
  7. Galaxy Cluster + Galaxy Cluster = Universe

Once that’s done, we’ll move on to making Life and Animal. These 2 are also fairly easy to make since you only need the basic elements with a few steps.

  1. Water + Water = Puddle
  2. Puddle + Puddle = Pond
  3. Pond + Pond = Lake
  4. Lake + Lake = Sea
  5. Sea + Earth = Primordial Soup
  6. Fire + Fire = Energy
  7. Energy + Primordial Soup = Life
  8. Earth + Earth = Land
  9. Land + Life = Animal

The next item we’ll need is Time, a base element in Little Alchemy 2. This is probably the toughest non-craftable element in the game since you’ll need to craft at least 100 items to unlock it. As such, you’ll need to dedicate a healthy chunk of time in the game to unlock… Time. Once we unlock Time, we can finally connect all the dots and make a Mineral with these final steps:

  1. Time + Animal = Human
  2. Human + Universe = Science
  3. Science + Life = Organic Matter
  4. Organic Matter + Earth = Soil + Mineral

4. Stone And Liquid

This is yet another example of a recipe having 2 extremely different ingredients when it comes to making them. Stone is a simple item, requiring just 2 steps of adding Air with Lava and initially making Lava by mixing Fire with Earth.

On the other hand, you need to do a lot more infusions before you get to Liquid. Like a mineral, Liquid’s core ingredient is Human, with a few other minor ingredients. You can follow the same steps as a mineral to make a human and continue with this recipe to make a Liquid:

  1. Earth + Earth = Land
  2. Land + Land = Continent
  3. Continent + Continent = Planet
  4. Planet + Planet = Solar System
  5. Solar System + Human = Astronaut
  6. Astronaut + Astronaut = Idea
  7. Idea + Water = Liquid

5. Liquid/Mineral And Rock

Combining a Rock with a Liquid or a Mineral is hands down the most challenging way to make something as simple as clay. Both Liquid and Mineral are very technical, but making them before making your rock is better since most of their ingredients are included in a rock’s recipe.

However, despite a Liquid or Mineral’s difficulty, it still doesn’t compare to a Rock. This is because creating one is not only extremely long, but it has some intricate ingredients in Little Alchemy 2.

Once you’ve gotten Life in your inventory, we can proceed to the next stage of making a Rock which includes all sorts of new and intricate ingredients.

  1. Life + Fire = Pheonix
  2. Pheonix + Pheonix = Egg
  3. Metal + Earth = Plow
  4. Plow + Earth = Field
  5. Stone + Stone = Wall
  6. Wall + Wall = House
  7. House + Field = Barn
  8. Barn + Egg = Chicken
  9. Chicken + Egg = Philosophy
  10. Earth + Water = Mud
  11. Mud + Life = Bacteria
  12. Bacteria + Philosophy = Small
  13. Earth + Small = Pebble
  14. Pebble + Pebble = Rock

Items You Can Make Using Clay

Now that we’ve covered all the main recipes to make clay from scratch, it’s time to see which Final items use it as part of their recipes. Final items are the last element in a series of combinations and mixtures you can make in the game. Once crafted, these items are partially highlighted, and you can’t make any further items with them as they go directly to your encyclopedia.

1. Firewall

A Firewall requires the least number of combinations to create in this list. Coupled with the fact that you only need clay and fire to make it, it’s probably the easiest Final item to craft. You can ultimately build a Firewall by doing these combinations:

  1. Clay + Fire = Brick
  2. Brick + Brick = Wall
  3. Wall + Fire = Firewall

2. Factory

Final Item: Factory (Screenshot Captured by eXputer)

The factory is a Final Item that mainly involves base elements and repeatedly combining elements with themselves. Therefore, it’s generally undemanding since you don’t have to use too many different items for it. You can make a Factory with clay by following these step-by-step fusions in Little Alchemy 2:

  1. Clay + Fire = Brick
  2. Brick + Brick = Wall
  3. Wall + Wall = House
  4. Fire + Air = Smoke
  5. House + Smoke = Chimney
  6. Chimney + House = Factory

3. Potter

Final Item: Potter (Screenshot Grab: eXputer)

No other Final item includes clay more frequently in their base ingredients than Potter. This item mainly comprises 2 components – Clay and Human. While the first component is already in our inventory, the second one can be a little more extensive. Following this complete procedure will let you craft a Potter:

  1. Water + Water = Puddle
  2. Puddle + Water = Pond
  3. Pond + Water = Lake
  4. Lake + Water = Sea
  5. Sea + Earth = Primordial Soup
  6. Fire + Fire = Energy
  7. Primordial Soup + Energy = Life
  8. Life + Clay = Human
  9. Human + Clay = Potter

4. Lighthouse

Final Item: Lighthouse (Image by eXputer)

Unlike other Final items on this list, Lighthouse needs an additional basic item – Light. Just like Time, Light is a basic element that provides a lot more value and crafting options compared to other ingredients in Little Alchemy 2. To make this new basic element, we’ll need to navigate through this recipe:

  1. Earth + Earth = Land
  2. Land + Land = Continent
  3. Continent + Continent = Planet
  4. Planet + Fire = Sun
  5. Fire + Earth = Lava
  6. Lava + Air = Stone
  7. Stone + Planet = Moon
  8. Sun + Moon = Sky
  9. Sky + Sun = Light

After that, we’ll be using clay to make a Lighthouse in Little Alchemy 2 with this brief step-by-step procedure:

  1. Clay + Fire = Brick
  2. Brick + Brick = Wall
  3. Wall + Wall = House
  4. House + Light = Lighthouse

That wraps up my step-by-step guide on how to make clay from complete scratch and Final items with clay in Little Alchemy 2. Besides the fact that you can make some unique Final items with it, clay is also very versatile. This means you can use it in various recipes and even shorten the number of steps for those recipes. So try to craft clay as early as possible so you can make use of its effectiveness!
